can I hook-up a PS3 console to my projector with only composite and s-video inputs?
i just bought a NEC NP1150 Projector, and it only has composite, s-video, and computer inputs.. Aparently Sony playstation only has optical, hdmi, an a AV multi inputs.. How can I play my playstation with this projector?? Thanks.

That projector has an input for component video, which will support 720p for both gaming and Blu-ray movie watching. So buy a component AV cable for the PS3 and use that (its the same cable as the one for the PS2): http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=ps3+compo... .
DVD video is limited to 480p over component, but that is the native resolution of DVD anyway and the projector can upscale that instead of the PS3.
Notice I said component video and not composite. Composite video only uses a single yellow plug for video and will not support HD video. A component cable uses three RCA plugs (blue, green, and red) for video and supports HD in most cases.Source(s): http://www.nec-pj.com/products/np/index3150.html http://www.paritymedical.com/projector-dicom-np115...

Your PS3 should have come with a cable that outputs to yellow, red and white RCA. Just use the yellow RCA to plug into the projector. You would then plug the red and white RCA into a receiver for audio.
