    My mom hates how when she mirrors her ipad onto the tv screen, there are black crop out areas on the sides of the screen since the ipad has different dimensions.

    Is there a way to fix this? There's a lot of apps with tv shows/movies she can't watch with just the apple tv or with airplay so she has to mirror.

    Thanks. Also, seems like airplay/mirroring is dropping every so often for her. I think it's cause ios 7 is new and the issue will be fixed with future updates. Is that right or is there something wrong with her system?

    Oh ok it's jailbroken. From my understanding mirroring is just that mirroring whatever is on the iPad.

    Not from the iPad, I alter the settings on my tv when I mirror my iPad. Specifically, I change the Wide setting to Stretch and change the V-Size to cover the screen

    When watching a video, if you / she sees the diagonal arrows on the bottom toolbar of the video player while in Mirror mode, that will put the video full-screen on the TV, not letterboxed.

    But, will things on the side be cut-off from view?

    Does not appear to be. It works the same way as doing that when viewing the video just on the iPad, it puts it full-screen. The video window is full screen, and the video within is whatever size the video is in.

    Hi. You can try if you're using the latest version of XBMC (Gotham I believe it's called) and the latest ios 7, or even ios 6.
    Enable the airplay mirroring from the iPad first, make sure xbmc is closed from the app switcher as well because you basically need a fresh open of the xbmc app after airplay mirroring is enable, xbmc should then open full screen, if not try changing the video settings in xbmc, I'm not exactly sure where right now but it's pretty easy to find if you spend a little time fiddling around with it.
    Hope it works!

    I've mirrored, and when putting a video full screen on the iPad, it's full screen on the TV. Try it for yourself

    I do. The video has to be in full screen for this to work.
