    HDMI Cable

    Hi guy's does anybody use the HDMI adapter, I got one today expecting to see iPad mirrored to my tv but it does not show full size, is it something I am doing or do we settle for box in middle of screen.

    Thanks for help I have already received via this great forum..

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    By it does not show full size, you mean it mirrors the screen, just doesn't take up the whole TV screen?

    The iPad screen is 4:3, so all apps use that ratio, when you mirror the screen to a TV, the apps are still shown in 4:3 ratio, even though many TV's use a 16:10 ratio, thus leading to black strips at the left and right side.

    Some apps, such as Videos can output videos in widescreen format and some upcoming games are also supposed to include that, but for now it is perfectly normal for the mirrored picture to be 'boxy'.

    On my TV I just hit zoom a couple times and it fills the screen. Most newer TVs allow you to adjust the screen from full, wide, cinema, fill, or whatever.

    Just wondering... How hard would it be to have the Ipad mirroring done through Wifi? I dont know if that would ever be possible. But it just seems weird with all the technology these days we have to use a big cable to do this...

    With the Apple TV box you are supposed to be able to do that with all your video content. But I haven't seen anything about all apps yet. I'm sure that it will happen for the jailbreak community first! Thanks Steve for slowing us down!
