    Hi,

    Loving my SP4 so far but encountering an issue related to the use of a second display.

    Be it direct or thru the docking station I have the same issue and be it a HD monitor or TV there is no difference. When I connect the second larger monitor for use "desktop" style the monitor has black bars on both sides of the desktop and it doesn't change when I use the TV settings to stretch or fit the input on the TV screen.

    If I go back to the SP4 and display ONLY on the second monitor than the screen on the SP goes black and the monitor is now using it's entire screen size however the resolution has changed such that icons are all to big, etc.

    Never had this issue previously with a standard laptop..
