    I've had my Sony KV32FX65 for about 6 months now, and it seems to have picked up an anoying problem.

    It seems to have a fault with its picture mode. When watching DVDs (on AV1) it sometimes jumps from one mode and then straight back to another. I've tried turning off the auto-format and format-correction modes but it doesn't solve the problem.

    When watching cable TV (connected to AV1 via the DVD pass through) it tends to jump to zoom mode!

    Should I get Sony to look at it, or is there an option that I'm missing.

    Thanks.

    Darren.

    According to this website this auto format "problem" is well known with some of the Sony TVs. It can be "cured" by turning off the auto format for the AV input.
    I tried this and the "problem" seems to have gone away. I can now manually select which mode to watch the picture in.
    Would daisy-chaining the scart from the cable box through the DVD player (Pioneer DV545) cause problems with the auto format signal?
