I have been doing Power Point presentations on our work projector which is a Sharp XR-30X, using my Dell laptop. The computer input for the projector is a 15 pin socket label'd as:

COMPUTER/ 21 COMPONENT 22 input terminal Terminal for computer
RGB and component signals.

My Dell did have such a socket and I could connect with a double ended plug cable but I have now gone on to a MacBook Pro which doesn't have this 15 pin outlet

Can someone advise how best to connect to this socket please? I assume I need an adapter to connect either my HDMI or USB output to this socket?

Well maybe ...

The OP didn't specify what model MBP he has, so perhaps a substantially cheaper mini-DVI or miniDisplayPort adapter is what is actually needed.

Thanks MacShane, I think this is the adapter I need and at just 5.99 delivered it'll do me!

Since he upgraded his computer, I assumed new; and 99% of presentation projectors, new and old, have VGA inputs...

If it's a new MBP and newer projector you could go straight HDMI...

I was hoping for HDMI but there is no HDMI input on the projector!
