Do you get the same quality of HD picture on an HD channel with the Sky HD box set to "Automatic" as you do with it set to "1080i"?

Yes, I'm talking about SD channels. Even changing the "4:3 default" to "4:3" does not give me 4:3 through the HDMI.

I can probably live with it, but it seems odd not to have this as a basic setting.

On my Roberts Stream 205, the only "listen again" programme listed under jazz fm, is "Jazz in the City". Why is this? It has loads of "listen again" under the BBC channels.

Doing that does shift it rightwards, but there's still a bit missing. Looks like it is overscanning as well as off centre. If I could find the engineer menu, I would dive in there and have a tweak.
