BBC 1 incorrect aspect on SD

Hi guys, I don’t know if anyone else is having this issue but I have noticed this morning that the aspect ratio for BBC 1 SD is squashed with borders top and bottom. It was fine yesterday. BBC 1 HD is absolutely fine, as are all the other channels (SD or HD). Very odd. Digital freeview is also ok, it’s only on the V6 box. Any ideas?

No problems here on my V6, aspect ratio is identical on BBC1 SD & HD

That’s odd. Wondering whether it’s regional. My BBC 1 is north west based. What’s yours?

I am also having this problem today on BBC1 Ch 101 and I to am in the North West.

It will not have the problem on ch108 because that does not broadcast Bbc1 North West only the generic national Bbc1

Yes I thought it must be why the SD and HD were different. Must definitely be a North west issue via virgin. Hopefully they will sort it out later.

Got exactly the same issue here and also in the North West. Since I woke at 6.30 this morning so hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

I'm in the North West and this morning BBC1 in SD was also broadcasting in incorrect aspect ratio (HD BBC1, and as far as I'm aware, all other channels are ok)

Virgin V6 box

Re: BBC 1 incorrect aspect on SD

Same problem here - North West again. Says on Service Status page there's no problem and test says all ok! Sort it out Virgin - we're paying for a service!
