why doesn't apple tv show ipad mirror in widescreen and only in 4:3 aspect ratio - the advertisements clearly show photos in full screen - am I missing something or is this misleading advertising

Apple TV, Apple TV3

    It is not false advertising but it is app dependend though; i.e. an app can take advantage of your whole 16:9 real estate like Real Racing or Apple Video app while others app may not have been designed for that.  Most video playback apps will be full screen.


    Mirroring your iPad app pages will be in 4:3 as it is the aspect ratio of the iPad.  It wouldn't make sense to present wider pages as it wouldn't match what you are seing on your iPad.
