    I have a 2011 Macbook Pro 15" connected via hdmi to a 42" 1080p tv. When Watching youtube video's in full screen, any quality, it shows black bars on the top and bottom and both sides, perhaps a few inches...anyone know how to fix this to that videos fills the entire screen like it should?!

    No one else got this issue and fixed it? Running Lion now, same deal..Btw. runs full screen fine in my BootCamp Win 7 64bit partition, and when not running the external TV it runs in full screen fine on the 15" MBP screen...

    Help?

    Pretty sucky that no one replys to my post. Wtf people?! I'm sure I'm not the only one with the problem

    So I had to against my will change the arrange so that the menu bar is now on the external display - that way when I watch youtube videos in full screen on the external, they actually use the full screen, no black borders on top and bottom.

    Now for another problem - Launchpad still is on the 15" display - any way to force it to be on the main screen, wich is the external... ?

    Hi, I have the same exact problem as you. Did you find any solution excel switching the main monitor?

    P.S.: the switching of the monitor didn't help to me... :(
