Pioneer 545 not stretching R1 picture???

I've tested A.I and Jay and Silent Bob and it won't stretch the anamorphic picture. I'm connected to a Sony36FS70 and it works fine on the region 2 disks I have. Someone told me R1 disks don't stretch, but I've had a different set up and it worked fine with R1 disks.

Any suggestions?

Your TV should do the 'stretching' not the player..

Have you set the player to 16:9?

Is your TV set to 'WIDE' mode for anamorphic discs..?

player is set to 16:9, see the R2 is working fine and they're stretching to the correct format, it's only when I put in the r2 disc does the set stay at 4:2.

Make sure you've got your DVD Player to 16:9 and your TV on wide mode, like it says above :-)

Straight scart from DVD to television.
Again I emphasise that R2 has no problem whatsoever.

jambo, you might be using a scart cable but with svideo.

RGB is usually much better and guaranteed to do the wide-screen switching.

there's a thread elsewhere that implies svideo switching does not work with all players.. the line switching is different between pal & ntsc discs, some players support both, some dont.

stick to rgb if you can... not sure what your dvd player is.

Bet the TV is on S video or something. I have the same thing happen on mine (Panny 32Pf10 & pioneer 525) Using AV1 RGB will auto switch on all regions but AV4 s-video only auto switches on R2.

The reason I set it up like this was that AV4 refused to auto switch a digibox whereas Av1 was fine.
