It appears these channels are being Broadcast in 4.3 format hence having the option under setup of Pillar Box , 14:9, or full screen
But what the issue is there is also a black line at the top and bottom of the screen as you would expect to see with 16:9 format programs on a 4:3 television which makes me think most of the content is in fact 16:9 but they are not sending the correct 16:9 signal to our decoders.
When selecting 14:9 default format for these channels seems to almost fix the issue with a smaller black boarder around the whole picture but still not perfect.
I dont believe it is any thing to do with my settings as I have spent a lot of time trying different settings in the Tv as well as the sky menus
Equipment used :
MySky HDi ( with esata on back )
SPDif to Sony DAV-S800 Amp ( nearly dead )
Another thing is with the option set to default to 14:9 with a 4:3 signal then I am going to loose some vertical viewing content when the broadcast is true 4:3
