    Connecting to an External Computer Monitor

    If you want to output images to an external monitor when the projector is turned off, you need to select Communication On as the Standby Mode setting and Always On as the A/V Output setting in the projector's menu system.

    Note: Monitors that use a refresh rate less than 60 Hz may not be able to display images correctly.

    1. Make sure your computer is connected to the projector's Computer port.
    2. Connect the external monitor's cable to your projector's Monitor Out port.
