    The Z2 has a DVI-I port - using a DVI-I to VGA adaptor will turn this into a VGA port. You will then just need a normal male-male VGA lead to run from PC to projector. I don't think Sanyo have an official adaptor yet but you can pick them up from maplins, CPC and PC shops...

    Or run DVI straight to the PJ if your graphics card has a DVI output (nearly all now do nowadays).

    If getting a DVI/VGA adapter, make sure it's for VGA to DVI as most are for DVI to VGA.

    There's no need to worry VGA-DVI would be the same as DVI-VGA...

    (you can also get VGA->DVI-I leads btw)

    I don't think the adapters or leads are reversible though.....but I may be wrong :)

    There are only one set of pins for R, G, B, H, V and ground in a DVI-I or 15 pin sub-D socket so I would assume direction is irrelevant (although what's that they say about assumption!?!?!?). Same princible as VGA -> 3 RCA being identical cable to 3 RCA -> VGA...
