    Display - ipad to portrait oriented TV

    Hey there, I'm trying to hook my ipad up to my tv that's set up portrait (up and down) and i want whats on the iPad displayed vertically too.

    Have you, by chance, got the orientation lock switched on? The iPad screen normally orientates itself automatically - either to portrait or landscape - depending on how it's being held. However, there is a switch and/or setting that can disable that, so perhaps you have that enabled? It depends which version of the iPad operating system iOS you have as to how this lock can be disabled. Let us know and we'll try to help

    thanks for th
    this is harder to explain than i hoped,

    imagine a normal 50" tv. now plug the ipad into it, it rotates and auto rotates based on the ipad now take the TV and tip it on its side into landscape orientation. the ipads image onscreen is now 90 degrees to the left or right (depending on which way the TV was rotated). i want it so the image on the tv is then straightened/rotated 90 degrees again, so it is in alignment with the TV.

    think of the macbook's "rotate 90 degrees" output option when selecting displays

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    zandstrax,

    The mirroring feature of the iPad 2 always transmits the exact orientation of the iPad screen. It does not have any configuration options, it is therefore not possible to change the orientation by 90degrees.

    For this feature to work, you would need to jailbreak the iPad and install DisplayOut, it let's you orient the output video signal by either 90, 180, or 270 degrees.

    So the main question is, whether you have an iPad 1, or 2. As the above method using DisplayOut only works on iPad 1, until an iPad 2 jb get's released.
