    from reading threads on here, there seems to be 2 ways in which most tv's handle their auto-resizing for different aspect transmissions

    1. Exactly whatever the broadcast was intended to be shown in - ie 16:9/14:9/4:3 - the latter two, with black bars either side, of increasing size.

    2. A mode which fills the screen no matter which of the above modes the program was filmed in - giving distortion of varying degrees.

    Can anyone tell me which camp the FX66 falls into (with a skydigital connection)?

    cheers

    (damm this forum is popular ;-)

    no fx66 owners out there with skydigital?

    anyways, i personally think at this end of the market they should have put both mode options in, described.

    All Sony W/S TVs have the following modes

    WIDE for Digital BBC and Anamorphic DVD
    ZOOM for L/B DVD
    14x9 for semi letterboxed Analogue BBC
    4x3 for 4x3 stuff
    SMART for 14x9 or 4x3 zoomed to 14x9 then edges stretched to fill screen
