Question about InFocus X1 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Multi-media projection without image

While attempting to play a DVD from a laptop using Mediaplayer, we can get the frame of media player to project through the Infocus X1, see the DVD image on the laptop, but not DVD image through the projector. We have checked all connections, restarted both the projector and laptop. We get other images to display through the projector, but no DVD image.

Re: Multi-media projection without image

A great deal of the time DVD players are very restrictive on outputting to multiple sources due to copyright protection. In my experience, if you use your laptops function keys to toggle output (For example, on my laptop, I hit FUNCTION + F4 to cycle between LCD,LCD+VGA,VGA), you should be able to disable the laptop's LCD display, only outputting via the VGA cable. It's worked for me with my HP VP6111 and Windows XP in the past. Hope this helps!

Can see frame but cannot see movie

Is it a downloaded movie? You possibly do not have the right codec to view it. Download VLC media player. It is free open-source software that can play practically any video format.

Won't project DVD playing in a PC laptop

My first thought, based on what you said, is for you to check the resolution being sent to the projector...if it's too high,(above the projector's ability to display it) you'll get a distorted or even a blacked-out display. Also, check the settings for the program which is running the DVD. There could easily be an option set incorrectly.

I am using a NEC data projector for the past 5 years. Recently I have problems in displaying a video(DVD)using directX/WindowsMediaPlayer or any other plugin. The video is displayed perfectly on the...

its a common problem of the video hardware in the laptop - it hasnt the ability to split the video "overlay" (often its decoded by something in the video chip, or at least a seperate bit of software and output seperate from the usual, slower windows & images data stream) off to the second screen & you just see the frame of the player.
if you set the external output to be the main/primary, or sometimes only active screen, it should work. you might also have a chance if you make it an extended desktop rather than a cloned one, then moving the player window entirely onto the projector's "screen"

Media player movie picture won't display

Yes, I have the same problem with a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop. I have never been able to show videos using two seemingly compatible devices. This is not a projector issue however, as my projector displays video DVD fine from this PC, only videos inserted into PowerPoint will not play. Using another computer it works fine. Imagine that, Dell selling two highly practical devices that are not compatible.
