In this informal video, I show how you can easily connect the iPad 2 to a big-screen television using the optional HDMI adaptor ($39 in the U.S., $45 in Canada). That way you can play games, look at photos and videos, and more — on a display much bigger than the 9.7-inch iPad 2.

  7. How to stretch the TV view? It depends on which TV you have but usually you enter the menu and then select the display options. From there you should be able to try the various options available on your particular TV.

  8. OK. I will answer the question because I just figured it out.

    "Strech" is an option for TV instead of iPad.

    My TV is a cheap one, $220, Vizio, 39''. The controller has a "Wide" button. After the iPad is connected, I clicked on Wide button and chose "Zoom" out of
    "Normal",
    "Strech" which makes screen bigger horizontally,
    "Wide" which is only a little bigger than "Normal", and
    "Zoom" which is the smartest way to make the screen bigger
