    I have a Sony widescreen TV which is about 6 years old now, my query is that when I connect via RGB it goes to widescreen and you cannot get the picture back to 4.3 even though you select this. Is this a common problem or is it just down to the age of my TV? It seems crazy that you have to watch non widescreen programmes this way and obviously does not look good.

    It might be the TV's auto switching. Some earlier Sony models had an auto switching function from hell as they tried to do it "intelligently" by looking for black bars or similar things at the top and bottom of the screen and switching accordingly. Try turning it off - see if that helps.

    Certainly, it's not common to all Sony widescreen TVs anyway. :)
