Google Slides Presentation on multiple TVs with different resolutions

Hello All-
I'm trying to run a Google presentation on multiple displays.  One of the displays shows as a larger resolution than the other two and no matter how I try to configure the HTML placeholder or the presentation size when I "Publish to Web", it fits on one but not the other.  Right now I've got both the Google Slides presentation and the HTML gadget placeholders set to 1600x900 and they look great on the smaller resolutions but only fill about 3/4 of the big one.  Is there some setting to auto-fill the screen or something I'm missing?  Setup: Google Chromeboxes through HDMI to LG Flatscreen TVs.  Thanks!

Hi James, 

Unfortunately there is no way to auto-fill the screen. I would suggest creating two presentations, one at the 1600x900 resolution and one at the 1920x1080 resolution. 

Then create two versions of your Google slide show one at 1600x900 and one at 1920x1080. See this documentation for creating custom sized slide shows. 

https://support.google.com/docs/answer/3447672?hl=en 

Then embed the slideshows into your presentations at their respective resolutions. That way both slideshows will take up the full size of your displays. 

Another user published this to their blog today on displaying Google Slides in Rise Vision which you might also find helpful.

If you have any questions let me know.

Thanks,
