Tivo not doing Widescreen

Ok so my TV picture mode is set to WIDE (Sony Bravia 32")

My Tivo is set to 16:9

However the display on my TV is 4:3 how do I know

When it's showing as 16:9 the channel logo is indented a couple of inches from the left of the screen. HOWEVER now the channel log is at the left of the screen and credits at the end of some programs are disappearing off the bottom of the screen.

How can I get this back to normal?

Re: Tivo not doing Widescreen

Is this on all channels and programmes but only on some?

To me it sounds like a situation where an SD channel is broadcasting a 4:3 programme but this is then being stretched to fill a widecreen TV.

Try changing your TV to 'Screen Fit' as this removes any in-TV stretching of programmes via HDMI.

You can then use the options on the TiVo box to manage how the channel is display. 'Panel' is the option of TiVo that shows each channel as indended by the broadcast.

With both the above settings then a widescreen programme will be shown in widescreen and a 4:3 programme will be shown in 4:3 with black bars down the left and right of the TV.
