To use the NEC projector with an iMac:

Connect the projector's RGB IN 1 port with the Mac's mini-DVI port using the cable provided. The mini-DVI port is on the back of the Mac beside the network jack/cable.

Turn on the projector (switch on the back and green button (On/Standby) on top. You should get a blue screen when the fan and lamp have come on.

Select RGB 1 as the source: use the MENU key on the projector, navigate to Advanced Menu, then Source Select, then RGB1 with the D-pad.

On the Mac, start up System Preferences and choose Displays. Click Detect Displays, and select a resolution that works well. It looks like 1600x1200 at 75 Hertz produces a good result.

If you aren't getting the projector showing what's on the screen, click the Arrangement option in Displays and make sure the Mirror Displays box is checked.

When you're done with the projector, press the green On/Stnadby button and wait for the fan to stop before turning off the switch at the back or disconnecting power.

If you wound up using an unusual resolution for the Mac to work well with the projector, revert to standard resolution by choosing Detect Displays from System Preferences after disconnecting the projector. It should go back to 1440x900 and Millions of colours.
