Black border around TV screen

Postby TerryC » Tue Aug 07, 2018 5:24 pm

We watch all TV via our laptop. We have a two inch wide black border around the picture. Is it possible to get a full screen picture and if so how?

If sending the signal from laptop to tv, using the tv remote (or on-screen menu for that input), go for Screen Ratio (or similar) and try Zoom to enlarge the picture. There may be several screen size/shape options to be had; go for the best one.

Same here - If we watch UK TV via the Apple TV from my MacBook it fills the screen however from my iPad there is a thick black border, none of the format/ratio controls on my Samsung Smart TV do the trick.
