A TV is meant as a video display device, not a source. As such, it might have an audio output to run to something like a home theater amplifier, but it would be a truly rare TV that has a video output as well.

What you should do is connect another device such as a VCR that can act as a TV tuner. You can run the VCR's video and audio outputs to the projector, tune in the channel you want to watch with the VCR's tuner, and you're all set. If you're on a digital cable system and have a converter box, you can use the outputs from the converter box instead of bothering with the VCR.

    Have you set the projector for the proper input? Some automatically select an active input. On others you have to tell it to use the AV input by going into a setup menu.

Want to be able to watch netflex via projector

A simple solution would be to connect the projector to a desktop or laptop computer. Simply watch Netflix on your computer and use the projector the same as you would a monitor. Most projectors have several input options as well as laptops or computers that you would attach to it. This is how I watch internet services on my television, as well.

I have the Sony VPL CS1 projektor and want to connect it to my tv, so that i can watch television channels on the big projektor screen, is this possible?

if your TV has video output signals for the program you are watching, then you can connect them to the projector.
otherwise you may need to get a cheap digital set top box and tune to the same tv program, and use the video output to feed the projector

S-video connection from freeview box - only black and white image

It's quite rare for Freeview boxes to have S-video output (even through the SCART). I suggest checking that your box does in fact provide S-video out.

Can i watch tv through my epson projector?

Yes, if your projector has a video input. Connect your projector's composite video input jack (usually colored yellow) to your video source. You said you want to use it to watch TV, so you'll want to connect it to the video output of a video tuner (such as a digital TV converter box) or a VCR with a built-in tuner. Set your projector to the video input and you're good to go! If your only tuner is your television, you'll need to check your owner's manual to see if it has an "output" jack. Some do, some don't. If yes, you're in luck. If not, try one of the other sources I mentioned earlier. Good luck!

How do I hook my data projector up to my cable TV?

If the TV offers video and audio outputs, you can connect those to the projector. Otherwise you'll need to use a VCR or DVR as the source. In fact, you don't need a TV set at all if the VCR/DVR you use has TV tuning. Hook the video to the projector, run the audio through your stereo system and you're set.

Connecting Hitachi VCR to my Direct TV.

Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

Will this projector work for HD TV?

While the projector may attempt to display the HD TV, it will be poor quality if a image is displayed at all.

The native resolution is to low as per the specifications. The resolution needs to be at at leat 480P to be compatble with HD TV.
