Topic:   Projector LG AH215 help!

Hey, I've recently been looking into purchasing a home theater projector, being a student i really didn't have a lot of money to spend, and was torn between a cheap 'Gaming projector' that kept popping up in searches and a LG ah215 which i managed to get a great deal on ( So i bought it! ). Although it hasn't been delivered yet and i haven't looked at it, i was hoping for some guidance, as I'm new at this and a bit of a noob! The specs of the LG AH515 are: Product Features * 1800 ANSI-Lumens * Intelligent Sensor * Brilliant Color * VIDI technology * Expert Color Management Technical Details Display Technology: 0.62 in. DMD Native Resolution: 720P (1280 x 720) Brightness: 1800 ANSI lumens Contrast Ratio (FIFO): 2500:1 Noise Level: 27dB (high brightness mode), 23 dB (Eco mode) Uniformorty (JBMA): >95 % Color wheel: 7 segment (RGBWRGB) Focus: Manual Zoom: Manual 1.16x Screen Size: 40 - 250 in. Standard: 100 in. at 4.1 m Throw Ratio: 1.8 (wide), 2.1 (tele) Projection Offset: 134 % Lamp Type: 220 W Lamp Life: 3000 hrs (High Brightness), 4000 hrs (Eco mode) Menu Language: Korean, English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese Aspect Ratio: 16:9 native, 4:3 supported Dimensions (WxDxH): 302x271x95 mm Weight: 3.4 Kg Power Consumption: 280W (operation), <5 W (standby) Power Supply: AC 100 - 240 V, 50 - 60 Hz Input Signal: DVI - up to SXGA+ (1400 x 1050 75 Hz), HDMI - 1080p (60 Hz/50 Hz/24 Hz), RGB - up to SXGA+ (1400 x 1050 75 Hz), Component Video - 1080p/1080i/720p/576p/576i/480p/480i, Component Video (incl. S-Video) - NTSC/PAL/SECAM/NTSC4.43/PAL-M/PAL-N Input/Output Terminals: RGB in, S Video, Composite, Component (YPbPr), HDMI, USB (service) Special Features: Digital Keystone Correction, Picture Stil, Quick Power on/off, Auto Sleep, Smart Picture Mode, Intelligent Sensor, Brilliant Color, Expert control VIDI So i bought this primarily to watch DVD's and see what my ps3 would play like on it. I got the Owners manual online and had a read through, but have been struggling to figure how how to set up the speakers, as audio isn't mentioned in the guide! Because I'm short on cash i didn't want to splash out on a new stereo system and was hoping i could hook up my PC speakers to the projector. Im planning on plugging my PS3 into the Projector via the HDMI cable (which im assuming will create the image?) and somehow connecting my PC speakers to the projector to create the audio. I have been searching for days to figure this out and i really have no clue. The device i believe has no Audio input so i can't just connect the 3.5mm male jack lead from my computer straight in. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a way of going about this. All i know about the projector is what is in the specs (even most of that doesn't make sense to me!)and all i know about my PC speakers is that it plugs into my computer via a green 3.5mm audio cable. Any help would be much appreciated, as i feel i have wasted my money! Many thanks, Josh! :)

Topic:   Height Question - LG AH215 Projector

[b]Background[/b] I have just bought an LG AH215 projector. I am trying to position it at the correct height. I need some basic advice. The projector screen is setup. The throw distance has been calculated correctly. There is a shelf on the wall opposite the projector screen where the projector will hopefully reside. The projector lens is presently positioned approximately 6" below the top border of the 50" projector screen. [b]Problem[/b] It seems that the image is always displayed significantly to far above the screen. It is impossible to make the whole image appear low enough to fit onto the opposite screen. Upon consulting the manual, the only illustration of the projector in operation on page 13 suggests that it should be positioned on the floor below the bottom edge of the projector screen. [url=]LG AH215 User Manual (PDF)[/url] [b]Question[/b] Can this be right? Can this projector really not be positioned in line with the top of the projector screen? What do you think?
