    Has any one noticed some channels are now sending out switching signals so video machine can record a film in anamorphic then auto switch the set to 16:9 on play back.

    I thought they always did :confused:

    For as long as I can remember, every 16:9 prog I record gets auto switched upon playback.

    Of course it will only be recognised by receiving equipment that sees the WS flag , usually line23 WSS (Wide Screen Signalling).

    I have a Panasonic and it has never did it before. It does not work on old tapes that I have recorded in W/S, just the later ones, although I think JVC did have this function that worked on films transmitted in anamorphic W/S before.
    Also old tape still have PalPlus in the code.
