How to Connect Epson Projectors to Cable or an Antenna
Watch cable through your projector. (projector ready for presentation image by Dmitry Goygel-Sokol from

An Epson projector is used to display video content on large projector screens or walls. Projectors can create a far larger screen than most televisions and at a smaller cost. You can connect cable directly to the Epson projector but if you want to connect an antenna you need to go through a TV. The Epson projector doesn't have a built-in tuner so it can't project antenna-based programming without a TV.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Epson projector
  • Cable receiver
  • RCA cable
  • TV
  • Coaxial cable

  1. 1

    Connect the coaxial cable running from the antenna into the "In" port on the back of the TV. Plug the standalone coaxial cable (that is not connected to the antenna) into the "Out" port on the TV. If connecting a cable receiver, plug the yellow RCA video cable into the "Video Out" port on the TV.

  2. 2

    Insert the other end of the coaxial cable running from the TV into the coaxial cable "In" port on the Epson projector. If connecting a cable receiver to the TV, plug the opposite end of the yellow RCA cable into the "Video In" port of the Epson projector.

  3. 3

    Power on the Epson projector, cable receiver and television.

  4. 4

    Push the "Menu" button on the Epson projector, then select "Input." A list of input options appears on the projected screen. Select "TV" for the RCA connection. For coaxial cable, scroll through the list of inputs until the antenna-based connection appears on the screen.
