Default Channel Guide not displaying in stretch mode

My Son-in-law just got a new Sony KDL-46Z4100, and is having problems with the aspect set-up and AT&T U-Verse, his HD cable provider. We cannot get the cable guide to display properly using any Screen mode except “Normal”, which has the back bars on the sides for all SD programming. If we change to any of the stretch modes (Wide Zoom, or Full), the channel guide also gets stretched right off the screen, so that parts of it are unreadable. The U-Verse STB is set to 1080i under the setup, screen aspect.
The problem stems from the fact that when in normal, the set displays the SD picture in 4:3, but displays the U-Verse channel guild in wide screen, filling the 16:9 screen perfectly. So when we try to stretch the SD picture to fill the screen, because the Channel guild was already filling the screen in Normal mode, when we stretch the picture, the channel guild goes off the screen.
Anybody figure out how to use a stretch mode on the Sony with U-Verse channel guide?
Thanks,
Surf40

Don't use the TV control. Use the one on the U-verse remote. It is located at the lower right. In the stretch mode it will automatically fill the 16:9 frame on SD channels.
