    Tv to projector help please!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi,
    Am looking for soem help with connecting a projector to a sony bravia 32 inch hdtv, with built in freeview, the whole idea was to show the freeview on my projector, but i cant seem to figure out how to get it to set it up?
    I have had my xbox hooked up to it, which i must say i was very impresed with, but the telly is giving me a head-ache lol.

    Any help would be grand.

    Thanks very much

    Andy

    P.s if i dont come to a solution am tempted to get rid of it lol

    1. Use Tversity (might be wrong spelling) to stream from PC the Xbox connected to projector. (May not get freeview)
    2. Use a capture card on computer (one that gets freeview) and stream (as above) or connect VGA to PJ

    ps not sure if TV will FEED the freeview signal, might be wrong thou

    Forgive my ignorance, because I've never used a projector with a domestic system, only in the office from a PC, but isn't a TV a RECEIVER? How would you connect a projector to a TV, using the TV as the signal source? Or am I reading this wrongly?

    Usually tv's have a passthrough on the freeview for video recorders. Use the scart connection. It should be labelled.

    Yep, that would be my bet - the projector should at least have composite in, if you use an output scart adapter (different to an input, some have a switch for this) then you could feed the projector from the TV. Or just buy a cheap freeview box...

    Right, but he said use the built-in freeview from the TV. That's what confused me. I think a standalone freeview box would be the answer, if it has the requisite output ... would that be RGB, or Component?

    may be rgb but depends on the outputs on the back of your freeview box and the conections on your projector

    Hi guys i want to say thank you to every person who helped me out, and the good news is i was at a pound shop today and found a scart connect with the three prongs (red, white, & yellow) and a bit for s-video, i tryed it out and am happy to report it is a success.

    Am going to now buy a freeview box with a hard drive and a projector screen, so if you got any of these for sale give me a shout.
