Using a DVD Player in B 200 room 237

  1. Connect the VIDEO OUT from the DVD player to the COAX CABLE near the TV.
  2. Connect the audio out from the DVD player to the audio in on the back of the TV.
  3. Connect the video out from the DVD player to the co-ax cable near the TV.
  4. Turn the TV on and select Video via the TV/video button on the front of the TV. (although the video is not going through the TV it is necessary to be in the video position to allow the audio to go through the TV) There is no audio amplifier and speakers in this room so we have to use the TV for audio.
  5. Turn the projector on using the remote that is fixed to the wall at the end of the white board and allow it to warm up about one minute.
  6. Press input button once on the remote. This will put the data projector in the video mode and there should be a message on the top right corner of the screen indicating video. There are three possible positions RGB, Video and S-Video each time the input button is pressed it will move to the next position.
  7. The DVD can now be put in play and the video should show on the screen via the data projector and the audio should be coming from the TV.

Connecting a DVD player to a TV with a VCR

player out put (composite signal/video out) goes to the TV's  A/V input
sometimes called line in.  Avoid the DVD player's outputs that are
marked component ie Y,Pb, Pr.    The TV then needs to be switched to
line.  You will also need to connect the audio output of the DVD player
to the TV.  If the TV has an S Video or YC connector, you can use that
instead of the video out.
