    I have a 3rd Generation Apple TV connected to a Sony Smart TV. All works well until I Mirror my I Pad or I Phone using Airplay. It only displays in 4:3 and leaves thick black bars either side of the image. This gets even worse if I play a 4:3 video from my I Phone (the image gets double bars down either side like looking at a postage stamp.

    Considering all the items (hardware), are the "Apple" family, I cannot believe it only works in 4:3. Bearing in mind that there is not a Smart (networked) TV made that is in 4:3 Why is this happening?

    I know the I Phone / I Pad are 4:3 devices but you would think Apple would have the common sense to automatically adjust the aspect ratio for the mirrored display on Apple TV via Airplay.

    Any advice much appreciated!

    Play with the TV remote and zoom the picture or something to make the black bars go away...
