I was out of the UK at the time, but what happened in 2005 with the winning of the Olympics bid one day and the 7/7 London bombings the next day? Not exactly the same time, but not far off.

Hi Chris

I just investigated that idea. Unfortunately, when the Screen Ratio is set to 16:9, the Display Format is greyed out and set to Auto. Thanks for the thought, but it seems to be a no-go.
