Sony HXD870 picture aspect on HDMI

Can anyone shed any light on the correct options to select on my HXD870 connected via HDMI to a Sony KDL40D3000 TV. I noticed an issue last night where Lord of the Rings on analogue CH4 was correctly displayed on the TV in 16:9 format but when viewed via the 870 the 16:9 picture was shrunk with black bars on all sides but the aspect ratio was correct.

On the 870 I have the HDMI 4:3 output set to "normal" with the TV AV input set to "smart" with auto format "on". If I change the 870 setting to "full" the TV selects "wide" but the picture is zoomed.

Thanks

I have also noticed that 4:3 pictures are slightly smaller when viewed thru the 870 when compared to the analogue tuner on the TV.
