I'm thinking about buying the Apple Digital AV Adapter for my ipad 2,

But does the picture fill the tv screen at aspect ratio 16:9 or is it the same as when using airplay with apple tv mirroring: only outputting a boxed 4:3 scren ratio?

It looks like it outputs the exact resolution, except when playing content/media where it will scale it to the TV.

I've attached some very quick photos for you - if you want a bit more detail let me know.
Specs are iPad 2, 23" Monitor @ 1920x1080 native res.

Thanx for the reply with pics bioHead,

Have you tried using the netflix app? I was wondering if that fills the tv screen?
