    as for how well the Wii will work on a projector, I had a similar question before, it should work, but my friend (same one with the older HD projector), said that he had some lamp problems when he had his Nintendo 64 and XBOX connected to it, but every time I saw it running, the only problem I saw was green colors didn't show up, but I think that was just because the projector was a first generation and still had some flaws (and is was a SONY product), it should run fine, I wonder how it would work on a composite connection though, all the HD connections on my father's projector are used up
    iit's not uncommon, but it is expensive
    Spoiler Alert!

    you have a link for this? thanks

    I would like to see a picture myself, if the connection is blue and/or it says computer, it is a VGA port, I have never seen a projector with a VGA looking port that wasn't VGA, the adapter that you are talking about sounds like it's just a VGA to componet converter, I wouldn't be suprised if the same item could connect a computer to an HDTV over componet

    I run my wii with my Optima HD70 with the nintendo component cables and it is just find. I set the Wii to 480P and the projector sees the 480P signal and the projects it at 480P. It looks pretty good. Wii sports is a bit rough edges on the bowling pins and such - BUT NO BIG DEAL. NFS Carbon looks KILLER on it. I am on a 130in projection.

    For anyone looking for a projector look at the optima HD70. It is GREAT for the money. You can get it for less than a grand. HDMI port and all. Very very nice compared to the competition. I chose it over a few that cost more...after I got to see them side by side.

    I am running the sinsor bar just across the living room and have it sitting on a small table in front of the screen. As soon as I can get my hands on a wireless sinsor bar... EBgames/GameStop and Walmart will be getting them in any time now.. I will mount it at the top of the screen and be DONE with it and not have to worry about the kids or cat playing with the wire...

    ummm. Well nyko released a good secnor bar for that, but the HD is a little hard. Now im not sure, but in 4 months nyko is said to release another wii product. I think nyko is a better company to go with the acceso.

    i also use a dlp projector. i keep my center speaker, wii, sensor bar, and remotes on a tv table and my cable box and stereo components in the lower part. get yourself a component switchbox with component outs. send the audio to your surround and send the RGB component out to the projector. i got a real good one from B&H, 35 feet ultra shielded hd component to 15 pin for just over 50 bucks! sweet deal! and dont forget to get a wii component cable. get the $25-$30 one, gamestop sells one for $50 and it's no different. they both send a 480 signal.

    ok... last night I got the Niko Sensor bar (sorry for the miss spell earlier.. typing with a kid in my lap...)
    It works great. I can now play from anywhere in the living room ... the range is much much better. I recomend either getting this one or building one for anyone with a projector ... it looks very clean just to have it there with no wires... and best of all. no wires for the cat or kids to play with!
