Why do some apps not function when HDMI connected?

When I connect to the TV from my 4.2.2 Android most apps run very well. But in some instances e.g. Trip Adviser and Google Maps the screen jumps left to right and sometimes zooms. With Trip Adviser and other web sites subsequent pages open without any input. Would appreciate your comments. Thanks.
