BACKENDS: iOS - Airplay Mirroring not working correctly

Reported by: SF/thorwan Owned by: vinterstum
Priority: normal Component: Port: iOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


I have an iPad 2 with iOS 5.0.1 (jailbroken) an Apple TV 2 with latest Firmware (jailbroken) and ScummVM running on the iPad. I was waiting for this for a long time, because I wanted to use the "Airplay Mirroring" feature of iOS 5, which lets you mirror the screen of your iPad to your TV over Apple TV 2. So I thought I could play all my old LucasArts Games on my TV in the living room. The problem is: when I hold the iPad in portrait-mode I have a small game-window and a keyboard in the iPad and the TV - so far so good. When I rotate the iPad to landscape, ScummVM goes into fullscreen on the iPad and also changes on the TV, but on the TV it is vertically fullscreen (rotated 90° counter clockwise) but not horizontally as it should. So it shows the same screen as the iPad, but somehow the "Rotation-Info" is not passed to the Apple TV 2 correctly.

This is probably a symptom of the same cause as this other open bug: "IPHONE: iPad rotation lock not handled properly"

vinterstum: Any idea how hard this will be to fix?

I think you are right, the problem seems to be that something regarding rotation isn't handled properly. Airplay mirroring should simply work without any coding on the developers side.
