    I've got a Toshiba 32inch 100Hz tv, and althought the TV's great, ever since switching from OnDigital to Cable, I've had an annoying problem. Whenever I change the channel from a widescreen program to a 4:3 program on another channel, the screen reverts to 4:3, whereas i want permanent widescreen, meaning I have to manually change it all the time.

    Anyone know any way of defaulting to widescreen on such tvs rather than 4:3.

    Check your tv and cable box set up menus to see if the aspect ratio is set to 16:9 rather than 4:3.

    My Cable box and TV are both set widescreen (16:9), and widescreen shows are shown in widescreen, but 4:3 shows revert back to normal. I need to know a way really to change the factory preset for Toshiba TVs, so i can change it from 4:3 to widescreen.

    And I don't know how i got the name Tim, just tried it and it worked.

    Well, it appears to be working as it should, and I don't know of a way of changing the default. However I think I am right in saying that the tv will remember the last picture mode it was set in and should start up in that mode, until you switch to an AV input.

    Tim, dont know if you have the same Menu as my 36" Tosh, I found if I turned the WSS to off that solved the problem.

    Regards
