It happens to me as well. As you say @jonnyw360f1 I have fiddled with all the picture settings, which include Auto Format (this makes the whole screen fill), widescreen, 16:9, 14:9 and 4:3, yet even if i do this i can’t see the left and right edge of the screen. It is really annoying in qualifying as all I can see is the times and not the names so i have no idea where anyone is. Even if I put the format on to 14:9 or 4:3 which basically ‘shrinks’ the picture, the names are still cut off and replaced with bands.
The same happens when I watch sky sports news, the only sky sports channel I have, and the right hand side which includes tables, results and other small headlines is mostly cut off as well.
I thought of three main possible causes:
1. It’s the T.V. that is at fault. Although I doubt it is that now considering @mclaren has the same problem.
2. I have a cable Virgin Media service, maybe that is the cause?
3. If i have the same problem on sky sports, maybe it is something to do with how sky format their broadcast when shown by virgin. Or is it that now Sky is the primary broadcaster, do they get choice on the formatting of the feed from FOM?
Or are Sky secretly conspiring to get me to become fed up of not knowing who’s where on the BBC so that I buy their service. ;)
