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

My mac book and epson projector doesn't show the signal


To my knowledge there are no video drivers to output video on a Mac USB port in the Mac OS system. There are however, devices that connect to the USB port that will give video out on Conventional (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc) connectors.e.g. http://www.newertech.com/products/viddu2dvia.phpMost projectors connect via VGA - what Projector are you using?

How can I hook up MacBook Pro with Optoma 1690 Projector? Am I supposed to hit a certain function key to get Projector to see MacBook


You may need a certain connection (MiniDisplay Port to DVI, or MiniDisplay Port to VGA). If you're connecting to an HDMI-compatible projector, you'll need an adapter. You'll also need an adapter if connecting your MDP (MiniDisplay Port) to a DVI or VGA port. Here are some helpful links:
#1 MDP Adapter Video (YouTube)
#2 MDP to HDMI Adapter (RadioShack)
#3 MDP to VGA Adapter (Apple Store)
#4 MDP to DVI Adapter (Apple Store)

Is these a driver to get USB connection to macbook


Are you asking if there is an adapter? There actually is an adapter (USB to S-Video) that will work between the two. However, with my MacBook C2D 2.4 GHZ, I use mini DVI to VGA adapter. This allows instant laptop to projector picture and sound. You can use it for anything from powerpoint to movies or even as a giant monitor. The mini-DVI to VGA adapter can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $20. Look for it in the accessory aisle near the Apple machines. IMO, this is a priceless addition to your MacBook. I hope this helps! Please remember to vote if it does.

Macbook recognizes dell projector, but not vice versa


Hello,
Your Macbook should automaticaly find the best resolution, if everything was OK. Is there any HDMI input on the dell projector? What projector is it? Is there is an HDMI input, you can use a HDMI to mini DVI cable: better picture and sound than VGA, and will probably solve your problem

Macbook pro + IBM m4000


Depends on the connections you have on both. Most MacBook Pros have a DVI connector on the side. If the IBM projector takes that sort of input, then all you need is that cable.
If the IBM projector has a VGA input, then you'll need an adaptor from DVI to VGA.
(VGA input is standard monitor looking connector.)
