Youview screen aspect ratio's

Hey all having tinkered with youview for over a couple of months now I can say its a great system a bit slow with the on demand stuff but that's properly down to my rural connection, the only annoyance I have is the aspect ratio's on some channels  and on demand content like Dora ( my daughters choice not mine) havUng a 50" plasma tv I end up with large vertical bars down the screen can someone suggest a way to change the boxes aspect ratio output  as I've tried changing it on the tv o no avail any info would be much appreciated.

You can't change it. The box shows the aspect ratio as it was originally produced. If it is an older program, not in widescreen, you will get the black bars.
