How to Hook Up DirecTV to a Projector

Connect your DirecTV receiver to your projector instead of your television, and you can display larger-than-life images while watching movies and shows. DirecTV offers more than 400 channels to its satellite subscribers, and its receiver has the connectors needed to integrate a projector into your home entertainment system. You can make the proper connections to display your DirecTV programing in less than five minutes.

Connect the other end of the RCA component cable to the back of your projector. Plug the remaining yellow component cable into the yellow "Video" port on the "Video In" section of the device to send the video from the receiver to the projector. Insert the remaining red and white RCA cables' male connectors into the red "R" and white "L" female ports.

Turn on both your DirecTV receiver and your projector. The images from the outputs on the receiver will be displayed by the projector.
