    Hi guys, just new here.
    I am able to connect my ipad to the tv via the HDMI. However I am only able to view it small screen . How can I view this the full size of my tv screen. All help welcome. Thanks.

    Hi there and welcome. The output through the AV adapter is constant, you have to use your TV control to increase the size to fill the screen.

    Hi Roy rob,

    Yes I've tried adjusting size on the tv, but still no joy,
    Apple say it should adjust automatically when watching HD but it doesn't
    Wide, zoom, and 4:3 on tv all working but still not full screen when ipad is attached..
    Thanks

    Hi Newpad - welcome to the forum! :)

    I've had the same frustrations and not sure that there is a single logical answer - the aspect ratio of the iPad is 4:3 (not 16:9) so side bars would be expected; as to not filling the HDTV screen that may be application and/or source related - I've put DVDs on my iPad and mirrored them to our HDTVs w/o an issue but other sources (e.g. some uTube videos) did not expand - don't know - sorry? :confused:

    Now, there has been past discussion on this topic, so you may want to do a search in the forum - e.g. check This Thread from a year ago. And hopefully some of our AV techies will 'chime in' w/ more useful information.
