    is apple planning on fixing this with the update in the summer for displaying macs also?
    The image is only half the size of a normal 16x9 display. i can't even stretch it far enough in the tv settings to get this to fill the screen. i won't ever use mirroring till this is fixed i hate it.

    iPad mirroring will never fill the whole of a widescreen TV, because the iPad has a 4:3 aspect ratio. So there will always be hefty black bars on the left and right, just as if you were watching an old TV show. The image should take up more than half the screen, though, unless you are holding the iPad in portrait mode -- in which case, don't!
