How to Connect a DVD Player to an Epson Projector
By Tyson Cliffton
Connecting a DVD player to an Epson projector is ideal for showing videos to larger groups. For example, you could go from having multiple training sessions for your business employees in a small room where the DVD player is connected to a TV to having one large session in a room where the DVD player is connected to an Epson projector. A DVD player can be connected to an Epson projector through either the composite or HDMI video input.
Connect one end of either an HDMI cable or composite cable to the corresponding video output ports on your DVD player.
Connect the other end of the video cable you're using to the corresponding video input port on the projector. If you're using an HDMI cable, connect it to the "HDMI" input port on the back of the Epson projector. If you're using a composite cable, connect it to the yellow "VIDEO" input on the back of the projector.
Turn on both the Epson projector and the DVD player.
Press the "Video" button on the remote control until the name of the input where you connected the DVD player appears in the upper-right corner of the screen. For example, if you connected the DVD player to the HDMI input, press "Video" until you see "HDMI" in the upper-right corner of the screen. The image from the DVD player then appears on the screen.
Items you will need
HDMI cable (optional)
Composite video cable (optional)
Only the video will be played through the Epson projector. You'll need to connect the DVD player's audio to a sound system.
