My name is Marc Owens and I'm the customer experience manager here at Best Buy Pleasant Hill. One of the questions we are getting more and more often these days is how do I take and hook my VCR to a projector for a family movie night? The first thing you're going to want to do is take your RCA cables and hook it to the back of your VCR. When you're doing this you're going to want to make sure that you find the outputs on the back of the VCR because there will be several different places to connect. Once you've identified the audio and video out, you want to make sure you hook the yellow to the yellow, the red to the red, and the white to the white. After you connected to your VCR, you're going to want to then connect the other end of the RCA cable to your projector. Here is one note - most projectors are not going to have audio inputs, so at this point you would only be utilizing the video portion of your RCA cable. So you would just take the yellow end of your cable and match it to the yellow end on the back of the - the yellow input on the back of the projector. Now you've connected the video portion of your output to your projector. The other thing you're going to need to pay attention to is how you're going to get the audio out of your DVD player, VCR, or whatever other device you're using to play on the projector. You're going to find the red and white ends of the RCA cable or if you have optical audio out on say for example a DVD player, you can then take that optical audio cable or these RCA cables and hook it back into the back of a receiver, home theater receiver, or computer speakers.
