My A760GX does not record widescreen - I’m guessing it is ignoring line 23 (or pin 8).
Widescreen files recorded on this machine will ALWAYS play back as 4:3 - If I force the TV to widescreen then the image is ok.
I have tried files recorded on other plays and genuine DVD’s and they play back without problems.
I am recording from a Telewest Cable box.
I have checked out the SCART cable and my 8 year old VCR sees the signal and records appropriately.
TV passthrough is fine - i.e. widescreen when it should be.
If I view the DVDR outwup whilst recording, the image is displayed correctly.
