How do I connect my image source to the product?

  • See below.

    Connecting to an HDMI Video Source

    If your video source has an HDMI port, you can connect it to the projector using an optional HDMI cable. The HDMI connection provides the best image quality.
    1. Connect the HDMI cable to your video source's HDMI output port.
    2. Connect the other end to one of the projector's HDMI ports. If you are connecting an optical HDMI cable, you must also connect the cable's USB power connector to the DC Out (2.0A) port.

    You can also select the Fast setting using the Fine/Fast button on the remote control to reduce lag time.

    Note: When an audio/video source that meets the HDMI CEC standard is connected to the projector's HDMI port, you can use the projector's remote control to control certain features of the linked device by pressing the HDMI Link button on the remote control and setting HDMI Link to On.

    Connecting to a Computer for HDMI Video and Audio

    If your computer has an HDMI port, you can connect it to the projector using an optional HDMI cable.

    Note: To connect a Mac that includes only a Mini DisplayPort, Thunderbolt port, or Mini-DVI port for video output, you need to obtain an adapter that allows you to connect to the projector's HDMI port. Contact Apple for compatible adapter options.

    1. Connect the HDMI cable to your computer's HDMI output port.
    2. Connect the other end to one of the projector's HDMI ports. If you are connecting an optical HDMI cable, you must also connect the cable's USB power connector to the DC Out (2.0A) port.

    Note: Built-in speakers are available only on the Home Cinema 3800. Make sure the HDMI audio playback device on your computer's audio settings is set to EPSON PJ.
