What small projector will work with Macs?

I just bought an Optoma Pico PK301 to use in our (Mac-based) office and also when we travel. Unfortunately I didn't realize that it won't work like a normal projector - i.e. just letting me project what is on my screen. Can I hack it or should I return it and get a different one? [more inside]

Looking for recommendations for an inexpensive projector for watching movies on an outdoor wall.

Looking for recommendations for an inexpensive projector for watching movies on an outdoor wall. Hoping to spend no more than $300 (used projector would be fine) - to watch movies on my roof against a stucco wall. There are a ton of used projectors on eBay but I need a little guidance on what to look for, as I have no clue. Just need a basic unit that will project a decent picture from about 10-15 feet away. Built-in speakers would be nice but not necessary. Thanks!

Do I need HDMI on a 3D DLP projector?

I'm planning to buy a new video projector, and thought that while I'm at it I should buy a 3D-ready projector so that in a couple of years when there are more 3D movies available, I'll be ready to watch them. Ultimately I think I'll end up getting a new PC with Blu-Ray and probably an NVidia card to play 3D Blu-Rays, as per this AskMeFi thread. But do I need to get a 3D-ready projector with HDMI, like this Acer P1200? Or does HDMI not matter? I don't want to end up buying a projector only to find I can't plug it in to the right source a year down the line.

Hooking up a projector to HDMI

Audiovisual question. What will happen if I plug the HDMI output of a Sony Playstation 3 to the DVI port of this max. 1280x1024 pixel LCD projector? I would of course have a HDMI-DVI cable. Will I be able to display 720p or 1080i stuff? And if it doesn't work, are there devices out there that downsample HD so I can use the projector for pseudo-HD movies and games? I really do not want to buy an HDTV. If it matters, a PDF manual for the projector (2.2 MB) is here.

Mirroring the display on an iMac running windows

For a new iMac running Windows XP, I need to mirror/clone the display so it shows the same on the monitor and a projector. The graphics driver (for an ATI Mobiity Radeon HD 2600XT) doesn't support mirroring, but the iMac does it automatically. But the monitor and the projector have very different aspect ratios, and the same screen size gets applied to both. Is there a way to set two different screen sizes? There's nothing under the display preferences. Any third party software that would work?
