 if he is spends a lot of time gaming, i am not so sure a projector is the best bet. all projectors use bulbs, that have a certain life-span. ( the infocus i have is about 3,000-4000 hours) that might seem like a lot. but if he starts to use it for movies and tv, it can add up fast.  to replace a bulb, it costs about $350 - $400 .  most projectors need a dark room to look their best. if the room that he uses his system is well lit, the image will be "washed out".  the high end "hi-def" projectors are costly, and personally i would not want an small expensive piece of electronics around a bunch of hyped up teens.  his gaming experience would be the same (or in some cases better)  with lets say a 32" LCD  720p in a dark room but sitting more closer to the set than normal, and now there are some great buys, much less than you would spend for a projector. ( dont forget, with a projector, you  also need a screen)

Sound issues when connected to PS3 with HDMI


I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

How do i get sound from my acer x1230 projector?


The acer x1230 projector has an audio mini-port on the back.

In order to utilize the speaker in the projector you will need to run a cable with a mini plug (same as your standard headphones) from your source to the projector.

On a side note, I would suggest using something else for your sound. Data projector speakers are akin to the internal speakers on a computer. The sound quality is not the best and the speakers on data projectors tend to not stand the test of time.

Your basic desktop computer speakers will give you better quality sound and they will most likely be louder as well. In addition, they use the same kind of port (mini) that you would use for the projector input.

Try pressing the "auto image" button on the projector itself. This sometimes solves these types of problems.

Infocus IN1 Gaming Projector


Hi, I just bought the same projector Infocus IN1 and after just 15 minutes of use it turned off due to overheating. It seems that the lamp is very ineffecient and produces too much heat. The ambient temperature in the room is only 16 deg. celcius. 

The solution I came up with is to have a standing fan blowing air directly on the back of the projector from less than a foot away. The standing fan which we usually use here in summer was enough to keep the projector cool. The infocus IN1 did not switch off for the next 2 hours (the entire length of the movie), until i turned it off myself. I am not sure how this system will fare in summer when the room temperature reaches 30 deg. celcius.

Connect the projector to an external amplifier and speakers.
The speaker system built in is designed for watching movies etc in a small quiet room.

Hope that helps =)
