Using the Gateway 205 Projector

Cable

Description

Composite video cable. Use this cable to connect a video component, such as a DVD player or VCR, to the projector.

The video signal is carried through a single video (yellow) connection.

The two additional connectors carry the left (white) and right (red) channel audio signals to an audio receiver.

S-Video cable. Use this cable to connect a video component, such as a DVD player or VCR, to the projector.

The video signal is split into two signals, black-and-white and color. This type of cable produces a better picture than the single-connector from the composite video cable.

This cable provides no audio output.

Component video cable. Use this cable to connect a video component, such as a progressive-scan DVD player or satellite dish, to the projector.

The video signal is split into three signals, one black-and-white and two color. This type cable provides the best possible picture.

This cable provides no audio output.

Remote control

Remote control

The infrared remote sensors are located on the front and back of the projector. The distance between the sensors and remote control should not exceed 29.5 feet (9 meters) for the remote control to function correctly.

To insert batteries in the remote control:

1 Remove the battery compartment cover.

2 Insert two AA batteries into the battery compartment. Make sure that the + and symbols match the + and symbols inside the battery compartment.

3 Replace the battery compartment cover.
