Question about Radio Shack Cinego D-1000 Multimedia Projector
How do I connect the Cinego to the MacBook Pro to watch the free movies on Net Flicks?
The projector has a computer video cable input on the side of the unit. If yor MacBook has a female VGA output, simply purchase a VGA cable (double male) at a Radio Shack or WalMart, or other comparable retailer, and connect the two. The Cinego will find the input signal from the Mac, and you have to press the right keys on the Mac keyboard to tell it to put the screen signal through the VGA output on the side of the MacBook.

The projector came with three video cables, and one audio. The first of the video cables is for component (three colors, which are blue, green, red) and is used for HD (hi definition) components. The second is an S-Video cable, which is used for just that, S-Video, which is one step below HD. The last type is composite, which is used for regular input. It has one input, which is yellow.
In order to utilize more than one component, you have to have a switching device. Since it is impractical (for me, anyway) to constantly unplug one video cable on the Cinego and plug in another of a different type, you must ensure that all of your components are of the same type. You may convert somewhat between components using cable adapters, but can only do so when the conversion is one level. The levels, from highest to lowest, are thus: HD, Component, S Video, Composite. You can go from one level to another which is one above or below, but cannot jump two levels.
As one example, if you want to utilize the HD capabilities of the Cinego, and you have HD cable or satellite and also a BlueRay disc player, such as a Playstation 3, you connect your HD cable/satellite and the PS3 each to a switching device, and connect the switching device output to the component input on the Cinego. The switching device, if you buy an automatic one, will detect whether the cable box or PS3 is on, and will transmit that signal to your Cinego. You may have to use an HDMI to Component conversion cable, or your switching device may have the ability to input HDMI but output the Component. The Cinego can only input the Component, as it doesn't have the HDMI input connector. The auto switiching device is about $25 and is available at big box retailers such as WalMart. So are the cables available there.
