Question about Sony KV-36XBR250 TV
My set is 9 years old and have never had a problem with it until recently...I have had a digital cable box on it for as long as I have owned it...Just recently the aspect ratio started automatically changing to 16:9 on channels...When I eliminate the digital box it goes back to and stays on 4:3..I had the cable company come out and they had never seen this happen before...They switched boxes and the TV was fine for about 2 days and then it automatically switched to 16:9 again. They came back and hooked up a little TV to it and of course it did not switch to the 16:9 ratio,,,they are telling me the problem is with my TV. I called Sony and they tell me there is no way my TV can switch to 16:9 and there is no adjustment for that, and that the problem is with the cable box..The cable company also says it isn't their box. I though of eliminating the box but then I eliminate channels. Does anyone have any ideas what could be happening or what I could do to correct this... Thank you
I also have the same problem with my 36xbr250... same Digital cable box I've had for years. Time Warner took over Adelphia here in NY and this must be part of their switchover. It just started one day. I'll be trying a DVR box/tuner as well in a couple of weeks, but it'd be nice if there was a mod to kill this feature (a switch/screw on one of the internal PCBs would be nice).

I wonder, does it do this on all programs ? I notice the same thing on my cable box when some of the wide screen movies are shown. I know of no adjustment on a Sony that would cause this effect. Stargazer
