Ok i bought this pocket projector off the apple site and i was really excited coz i so far can connect it to my satelitte reciever and watch tv of it and i can connect it to my iphone aswell and i now have bought the mini dvi - video cable from apple site aswell to try and use it with my IMAC it worked fine on the mac site but (by the way im using the s-video in the video cable and then it goes to a s-video - phono) im a big windows user and i have everything on my windows site games and stuff movies and so on i tryed on windows but i would not work i could activate it in the minitor settings but the screen on the projector stayed blue nothing happened i have tryed everything i think soon i cant get to update the graphics driver for some reason either i dont know what to do now

I'm having a difficult time understanding your post... but it may be that you do not have the correct drivers installed for Windows or the display settings are not setup correctly. Since it works OK on the Mac side and does not work with Windows, that's a good possibility. A projector is like an external display. You have to choose the correct resolution and color depth. Also, make sure Windows recognizes the pocket projector before you begin the setup.

Regards.

In Windows, (you didn't say which version of Windows) open the hardware tree. Control Panel -> System -> Hardware. Does the projector appear under displays?
