    Hello

    I have an iPad 4, I have the HDMI dongle. I wanted to watch a movie from Chrome in the iPad to my TV but the TV is not showing the entire full screen, just a box in the middle. How can I fix this?

    Thank you.

    This is because it is mirroring the display and the iPad has a 4:3 aspect ratio while your TV has a 16:9 aspect ratio. I'm not sure if there is an option for just playing the video over the adapter, but you might look for it in Control Center.

    Did you try enabling full screen by tapping the arrows that should be at the bottom of the box? If so you made need to use the zoom function on your display to stretch the film,
