I just bought a 42" panasonic flat screen (TH-P42S10Z).  I noticed that the picture gets cut off on the screen.  Mainly left and right.  It's very obvious when there's name displayed at the top/bottom right or left corner.  I mainly notice it on TV1 and comedy channel so far.

I've tried all the ratio aspect from tv setting.  None of them displays the full picture.  Though the "just" mode seems to be the best with full screen; I don't understand when changing say 4:3, it's not full screen with side bars on both side, but still cut off the right and left.

Any idea how to fix this?

You need to have both your Sky decoder and TV set to 16:9

Pretty easy - press the circle button, scroll across to advanced setup (or similar), enter your PIN and go to TV setup: scroll to 16:9 and you're away laughing.
