Projector Blog: Using a Settop box to get free to air television on a projector

Connecting free to air television to your projector

Although many projectors are used for gaming and movies sometimes it is fun to watch some sport or even the weather forecast on the big screen. Most projectors do not have a TV tuner inbuilt as they are mostly installed on the ceiling this would involve quite a lot of unnecessary cabling.

The best way to get TV on the big screen is to grab an inexpensive settop box at a local retailer. Some will even allow you to record TV. This will plug into the coax antenna port in the wall. You can then run a HDMI cable to an amplifier which will distribute the audio to the speakers and the video to the projector (via a HDMI cable).
Without an amp you could connect the settop box to some speakers via an audio out (usually optical) and then separately to the projector for video via HDMI.
