Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

Nice work, I wonder if an Android phone would provide and be on the same network as a chromecast similar to you Apple TV and hotspot.

I don't see why not. Chrome cast is fairly cheap right? Worth a shot. Also, you don't need an iphone to use the AppleTV. Simply just needs an internet connection. However if you wanted to mirror your phone you wouldn't be able to do that.

Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

I need to play around with the settings because the picture is stretched. Basically people look skinnier or a basketball is more oval shaped. Hopefully I can find a setting to fix this. Basically I need to make the video letter box and it would be perfect.

Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

Hi, in the AppleTV settings menu, go to Audio & Video, then TV Resolution, and set it to 640x480, that's the native resolution for the Uconnect screen.

Yes that would work for movies I was loading onto the AppleTV but not when using the native apps like netflix, ESPN etc. Hope there is a solution for the native stuff.

Re: Hey Apple TV Guys!

Well, unfortunately none of the resolutions seem to make a difference for me. I watched a video of a guy with a Jeep that has the AppleTV and he has a black bar at the bottom. I think I heard Magnus talk about that bar how it was suppose to be where the stock entertainment system controls were. Anyway, his seems to look normal since that bar is there and the video is not stretched. While that single black bar looks tacky, it seems like it makes the aspect ratio normal. I have sent him a message and hope he replies. I have also sent a PM to Magnus as I believe he has an AppleTV setup as well.

I found a workaround for removing that black bar but I think it DOES stretch the image a bit when removed. Using the back button cycle through all of the inputs until it spits you back out on the "controls screen" and then re-enter "cargo camera".

Fortunately or unfortunately (not sure lol) I do not have the black bar. Am I wrong in thinking the black bar would keep the screen from stretching vertically?
