    I am going to buy a slimport connnector for my Passport to mirror screen to my TV. What I am wondering was if I watch a 16:9 ratio video on the Passport, then i'll obviously have black bottom and top on the Passport but on the TV, is it similar?
    I am asking this question because the Passport has a HDMI Display Mode (in Settings) that can be set to 16:9 ratio. That I assume will help Passport to mirror a 16:9 ratio vid just as a Z10 or Z30 would do in its horizontal mode.
    Can someone who has the Slimport and Passport confirm this? Tks

    Does the Play On feature allow Passport to mirror 16:9 vid onto the TV similar to Z10/ Z30? If you have the Slimport, I'll be much appreciated if you could share some photos

    Just a note on the play on feature, use the video app to play your videos and that play on option is there. It's not available if you load the video from File Manager.
