I bought an S-Video cord, and hooked up my laptop to the projector, I have the source checked under S-Video, but then (AUTO, PALBG, PALM, PALN, NTSCM, NTSC443, SECAM50, SECAM60) comes up. I don't know what any of these mean, and when i push the video button, nothing comes up.
Re: S-Video, want to hook up my laptop, won't play
Those weird names are types of video, you want that on auto...you need to set your display to detect another monitor or lower your resolution settings as well as your refresh settings (hertz) on your laptop

I tend to use the VGA cable. Once connected, switch the laptop on until you get to the desktop, then switch on the projector. Some will see the signal, if not, simoultaneously press your FN and relevant 'F' key to send the signal out to the VGA. You may need to do this 3 times, once to send to projector, one to send back to laptop screen and then once to send the signal to both projector and laptop screen. Sometimes this can take a short amount of time. You may want to change the projector settings to the VGA input so it doesn't constantly search for a source. If you still have problems, go into properties on your laptop and advanced. you m,ay need to unclick the box saying 'Extend to..........' (You should find what I mean from this, I am in front of a pc therefore the settings are slightly different.)
There is a chance something is wrong with the cord or connectino the TV is using. Try hooking it up directly to a laptop or other equipment. Trying that will let you know if it is a problem between the TV and projector, or the projector itself.
To hook up cable tv, you will need to have the cable running into a vcr 1st, then run either your s-video cable or audio video cables into the projector. Press the Source Search button on the remote control or the projector repeatedly until you see the image you want to project on the screen. The projector has two Source buttons. Use the Computer/Component button to switch between equipment connected to the Computer/Component ports. Use the Video/S-Video button to switch between equipment connected to the Video and S-Video ports. ? The remote control has four Source buttons. Use them to switch between devices connected to the ports identified on each button. (The PowerLite 830p does not support EasyMP.TM) You can preview all sources on one screen to help you select the desired source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after pressing the button.)
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.
I own the RCA RT2600 Home Theater System. I have never set it up, it has never been used. I have someone who wants to buy just the receiver and nothing else. I am wondering what you paid for just the receiver? I don't want to break up the system but I need money right now. I am open to suggestions as to what to do and how much to sell them for.
This sounds like a driver or software issue. Check Dell's support site for any projector related drivers or software, and also check the projector manufacturer's site for drivers or software. You might also look for any Windows media player updates.
sometimes it helps to hook up laptop and then power everything up at once. Also check and make sure that you have the source looking for the laptop or have it on auto search for it may also need to the check the menu for the projector to see if the may have a manuel connect for the laptop to be able to view
