    I have the Digital AV Adapter and when I plug it in, I get a black frame around the iPad screen in both portrait and landscape mode. This is not the black bars on the side that I should be expecting, its a black frame around everything, see the picture below.

    When I load a movie, it takes up the full screen, which makes me believe its not a TV setting.

    Any ideas?

    I have experienced this with my iPad as well .. Unsure as to why this is happening .. I have a cartoon hd app which has movies and the movies are in a tiny little box in the middle of the screen .. However, when I connect my iPhone .. It is presented in full screen on the HDTV .. Strange

    Aspect ratio. Your iPad has a certain aspect ratio which doesn't match that of your TV. Your video content, however, is probably a closer match if not the same (depends on the content).

    I think the OP is referring to the black borders at the top and bottom of the picture, not the ones on the sides.


    Have you tried using the adapter with another TV?
