Question about Optoma MovieTime DV10 Multimedia Projector

Apple Macbook pro video out to VGA port ("d-sub") on Optoma

My MacBook Pro recognizes that it is connecting to a DV10, but the projector doesn't see any signal coming from the Mac. I have the appropriate DVI to VGA adapter cable and have connected to the back of an HDTV and the connection has worked fine. So, am I missing some little step, or is there some kind of random incompatibility here, or what?

    so frustrating!
    has anyone figured out a way around this? a different way to conect? perhaps with some sort of s-video adaptor?

There's no solution. it will not connect with macbook pro or any other mac. as on the phone with all technicians and they do not know what to do. I had the unit replaced and still would not connect.

I'm using a DVI to HDMI Adapter. It's working with that solution but the image on the HD700 is a bit strange. Does anybody have a solution for that?
cheers,

What might be the problem since my macbook pro is connected to the projector through a HDMI to VGA adapter, yet the screen remains black?


Vga and hdmi are different formats. Unless you are using a coverter box that translates the data from one format to another it won't work. Vga is analog and hdmi is digital

VGA to HDMI cables don't work. They're a con. VGA is an analogue signal. HDMI is digital. It's not possible to convert from one to the other with just a bit of wire.

Recognize macbook connect


You may need to check the settings of your mac book that permits you to output the signal to an external display. Also you may need to purchase a display port adapter (VGA, HDMI or DVI) that is compatible with the input connector on the projector

What cable or adapter do I need to connect my projector to a MacBook video out port?


You will need a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter. Apple sells this item through their online store.
http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9320G/A?mco=MTY3ODQ5OTY
You will also need a male to male VGA cable to attach the adapter to the projector.
You can find modestly priced cables at monoprice or other retailers. example: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10201&cs_id=1020102&p_id=2898&seq=1&format=2
Plug the cable into your projector and then plug the adapter into your MacBook. The MacBook will automatically resize your picture to the appropriate resolution for the projector.
Enjoy!

Connect Cinego to MacBookPro


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.
