Edges of picture being cut off

I have just changed from an old 4:3 screen TV to a widescreen one. The edges of the picture are still cut off - in other words, it looks like the 4:3 picture has been stretched to fill my widescreen TV, rather than filling the picture filling the full screen.

 

I have changed the aspect ratios in the TV's settings but it makes no difference, the edges are still always cut off. Is this something I have to change in the Virgin box settings? (I have an old box, not Tivo). If so, how do I do it?

 

Thanks

I have the same problem, with edges of the picture cut off. Would you mind explaining how you solved the problem?

Re: Edges of picture being cut off

Did you find a solution? I have bought a new TV and the picture on either side is cut off, no matter what width setting I adjust on the Tv. EG on the sky sports channel, half of the results are cut off on the right, or I get racing from the "eltenham festival!

Is it the virgin signal

Thanks. So simple, I was trying to sort the TV, when it was the V box settings which needed adjusting.
