    I've been asked to take my projector(Sanyo Z1) to a wedding to allow us to watch the Wales v NZ rugby next weekend, the problem is i don't know if this will be possible, as the wedding is in mid-wales and the only signal is via a standard ariel with a RF? (i thick that is what their called) connection,

    Therefore how would i connect this to the projector, and secondly how would i connect some sort of sound out. The only way i could think of is to take a standard TV to process the input and use its video out to the projector and the sound from the TV.

    Any ideas, please?


    Cheers

    Hi adieacc

    A solution would be to use a video recorder as the source for the picture (using this as a tuner) with a scart lead (to whatever input you have on the PJ) as for the sound do you know anyone with a getto blaster or micro system with a line input. I think this would be the simplest way using comonnly available gear. Not great quality but it'll work.

    is there no digi tv in wales. if there is, find someone with a set top dvb box.(bound to be someone at the wedding who has one) and connect via composite or svid for the video. and to some pc speakers for the sound
