How do I stop the screen from stretching

I'm trying to watch uk gold on my Tivo but everyone looks fat and it seems the screen is being stretched to fill the screen. I thought these things were dealt with automatically by Tivo. I can't find any mention of this problem in the Tivo instructions so I don't know how to stop it. Can someone advise please.

Re: How do I stop the screen from stretching

The information you need is in this help article: How do I change my TiVo box's video output settings?

To stop TiVo stretching channels, you need to set the Aspect Correction Mode to 'Panel'

Remember your TV might also be set to stretch a 4:3 picture so you'll also need to consult your TV manual.
