You may be able to use your remote control as a wireless mouse when projecting from a computer (see page 58). Connecting to the VGA Computer Port You can connect to the projector using the VGA computer cable that came with it (the monitor port on your computer must be a D-sub 15-pin port).This is the best type of connection for use with the interactive pens. 1. Connect one end of the VGA computer cable to the projector’s Computer1 or Computer2 port and the other end to your computer’s monitor port. 2.
