Apple TV on steroids

My brand new Apple TV which I purchased today seems to be on steroids.
The lady hidden inside the box is a very fast talker..... sounding almost like a cartoon character.


Also, playing the content from my Ipad onto my TV screen only occupies about 3/4 of the TV screen. Any thoughts how I can make it grow in size to fill the entire TV screen?

Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

My Apple TV sounds like a speeded up tape.

Just its own native voice confirming remote commands, and not the sound of videos or TV programming.

It is the voice over, which can be set to slow, normal and fast via de accessibility option in the main menu.

AirPlay Mirroring doesn't fill the screen, you'll have pretty good borders left & right side due to the different aspect ratios (12:9 iPad and 16:9 television). However if you play a video and do a normal AirPlay from within the app (not mirroring), it will be full screen assuming the original video content is 16:9.

I was about to reply with " I thought the iPad was 4:3" and then .... it hit me.
