Sony FX65 - autoformat problem



Hi, I have a Sony KV-FX65 that has a recurring problem with trying to be too clever for its own good. Whenever it is playing a DVD (Sony 735) it will keep flicking between widescreen modes (i.e. the picture will have thick black lines at top and bottom, then the screen will blank for a moment and the picture will fill the screen, and then it will flick back). This is pretty annoying and I am struggling to stop it happening. I have played with the menu options on the TV and DVD player but can't see anything obvious. Does anyone have any ideas? (Sony didn't, but they suggested calling out an engineer to look at my set up...)

Thanks for your help,
