for an outdoor movie setup, If I run an HDMI cable from my blu-ray player to my HD projector, but need to use the red/white RCA audio cables to connect to my older stereo system can I just run that from the projector to the stereo without any sound delay or syncing issues? Or if I can find a blu ray player with RCA audio out could I run the HDMI to the projector and mute the projector sound while running the RCA from the blu ray to my stereo. Thanks for the help!

Both options are acceptable.

You should be able to turn the sound down, or disable the audio from the projector speakers instead of muting it. Depends on the projector which will be used.

The W1070 will turn off internal speakers and use external ones, through the audio output I believe, through a menu setting.

Many BD players have digital audio output through optical connections. If your receiver supports it, that's a good way to go.

Most of the projectors I am looking at have an audio out that has 1 plug (not the red and white like they do for audio in). So would something like these do the trick to go from my projector audio out port to the red/white RCA audio in connection on my stereo:

That way I can run HDMI from BR player to projector and then this cable from projector to stereo RCA jacks and have no syncing issues.

You won't have syncing issues typically anyway, but those are the correct cables to use.
