    Depending on your projector set up you will probably have some problems with the included sensor bar. You may need to get a wireless sensor bar, like the one talked about here.

    You could try this homemade one.

    The one review on IGN is showing up on Amazon for release on March 5th.

    I need to either connect the console to the svideo port of the projector and sometimes to the yellow av composite port too? can it connect to both straight out of the box? OI hope it comes with all the leads? otherwise I would like to order some leads now?

    The console comes with AV Yellow/Red/White...you can order component. I don't think there is an s-video option but I could be wrong b/c I only use the standard.
