    I am trying to connect my mac to my dell projector and have the fitting adaptor but it will not transfer the computer image to the projector. The dell screen remains blue and searching for signal. Is there some setting or something I need to do on my mac to finalize the connection?

You shouldn't need a driver as long as the Mac video system resolution can be matched by the Dell projector. Considering you are using a Mac Pro I don't think this will be an issue. Have you tried it and it didn't work?

I tried all the available solutions and the MacBook Pro could 'see' the projector and adjusted resolution on the MacBook LCD accordingly. There continued to be no signal received by the Dell Projector.

I agree with MacinNac - You won't need video drivers for the mac since mac can understand basically any video output device.

    There's also an auto detect in the drop down menu bar displays icon, or if you don't have the menu bar item showing, system preference will also have the auto detect button in display settings. But Restarting works too. :-)

Angel07aradh,
You would need to send the projector back to Dell for service with replacing any parts other than the bulb.

Unable to play Apple PowerBook Keynote Application slides


I believe the problem is that your PowerBook does not have the proper drivers for this projector. The maximum resolution on it should be 1600 x 1200, however Dell only certifies this with (and provides drivers for) Windows XP and Vista. I have been unable to find Macintosh drivers for it, and think it unlikely they exist. Without the exact drivers, your computer will find the best match. That usually means you cannot use advanced features, such as higher resolutions, with the projector. Sorry I don't have better news for you. If you perhaps copied your presentation over to a Windows laptop and connected it, it might work. I'm honestly rather disappointed in Dell for not providing Mac drivers for this.

Is there a way to setup my universal remote for my dell 2400mp dlp projector? if so what is the 4 digit code?


You need a learning remote as most "universal" remotes don't have the codes pre-programmed for projectors. The Logitech Harmony is worth it's weight in gold, and it looks cool, but will set you back about $100. There are cheaper learning remotes, and they may suit your purpose better, look on New Egg and Ebay.

I have a question regarding the distance I can achieve with the Dell


The Dell 2400MP Projector is rated for 1-2 to 12 meters, or 3.9 feet to 39 feet.
However, the farther the distance to the screen, the dimmer the image will be.
A great resource for Dell Projectors is this link: http://www.projectorcentral.com/Dell-2400MP-projection-calculator-pro.htm

It leads to a little flash tool that allows you to use sliders to adjust throwing distance and then tells you how much light you can expect the wall. It also gives you a ton of other useful information about the projector.

hope this answers your question
