    Hey folks - I was at a hotel this weekend (with a nicer TV) and when I plugged the iPad in, not only were the movies fullscreen, but my homescreen and everything else was fullscreen - which was great.

    When I connect my iPad 2 to my home television (32" Vizio), only video playback is fullscreen. Everything else only takes up about 70% of the screen.

    Am I missing settings on my iPad or TV? I'd like to get it to be fullscreen ALL the time...

    If its a Vizio from any of the VO lines, hit the Vizio button (or menu), go to setup and on the screen options, choose WIDE. It sees that the iPad is 4:3 and is treating it like a 4:3 television channel.

    It might also be called Stretch, or Panoramic.
