Connecting to a Component-to-VGA Video Source

If your video source has component video ports, you can connect it to the projector using a component-to-VGA video cable, two VGA computer cables, and a splitter that supports component video signals. Depending on your component ports, you may need to use an adapter cable along with a component video cable.
Note: If your video source has two sets of component video ports, you may not need a splitter.
  1. Connect the component connectors to your video source's color-coded component video output ports, usually labeled Y, Pb, Pr or Y, Cb, Cr. If you are using an adapter, connect these connectors to your component video cable, then connect the VGA connector to the splitter.
  2. Connect a VGA computer cable between each projector's Computer port and the splitter.

    Note: If you choose the Computer2 ports, you may need to change the Monitor Out Port setting in the projector's Extended menu.

If your image colors appear incorrect, you may need to change the Input Signal setting in the projector's Signal menu.

Note: If you connected a game console, it may take a few seconds for your image to appear. To reduce the lag time, set your game console's input signal to a progressive signal of 480p or 720p. See your game console documentation for instructions.
