Question about Optoma EP739 Multimedia Projector

How do you feed TV thru an Optoma DLP projector?

I use an RF converter to hook up several devices thru to my Optoma DLP projector. The RF selector has a coax able feed in (ie. Antenna IN). It also has a coax 'To TV' terminal. I have an sVideo cable hooked up to the projector and three devices that feed it - PS3, Wii, and a DVD player. I can't get the TV feed working and I've been to the Source and Best Buy for advise.

Televisions generally do not output to anything.
The inputs are only for inputting from other sources such as computers, DVD players, VCRs, cameras etc. as long as you have the correct cables.An Optoma will generally speaking never accept a television signal I have two and the only input is a VGA IN so you COULD hook up a computer with a wireless or ethernet to The VGA INPUT and watching the computer on the screeen get access through comcast exfinity, neflic hulu or youtube channel and with a little monekying around view it using the projector.
Rmember the bulbs have a half life so if it says the bulb will last a 1000 hours , the half life means it will be half as bright at 500 hours, They are extremely exspensive so get a TV.
300 plus dollars for most projector bulbs

You're projector is most likely fine. Check your satellite box. Go to the menu and see how its set to display video. It may be trying to up-convert TV signals. Try different adjustments from there to see if you see any change.

Why won't my Optoma DV10 projector won't turn on?


On an Optoma DV10 if its not the lamp timer, then it might be a cooling fan that needs replacing. Take out the old one, and look-up its part number online. If you don't feel confident taking it apart, have a qualified person do this.

this is a shot in the dark, i don't have a projector to hook to my laptop, but i have hooked it to my tv and actually had to right click on the desktop in an unoccupied spot and go into the display settings to get my connection between both, it is probably similiar for laptop to projector.

Need to somehow hook up speakers to hd65 optoma, since it comes with no speakers. This would just be a business presentation so a good speaker component is fine but it doesn't have to be home theatre...


HI there the normal way to sort this problem in most installations is to run active speakers straight from the sound card on the pc /laptop that is running your presentation and nothing to do with the projector

skytec make a good range of quality active speaker available on the net
