I've seen a few posts about people trying to hook their V6 boxes up with projectors for home cinemas and there have been varying answers from "yes it's doable" to " V6 boxes are not currently compatible with projectors"
Does anyone have a definitive answer on this? I'm looking to buy a projector soon but don't want to waste the money if the V6 isn't compatible.
If anyone does currently have a V6/projector set up and has any suggestion of good projectors for outdoor (preferably in daytime) use please let me know
Thanks for confirming that you know people who use a projector with a V6. Reason i want to use it outside is for sporting occasions so i can sit out with pals, have a bbq and a drink. I'm aiming to create a set up where there will be a tented roof which the projector and screen would sit under so wouldn't (or would less) be affected by the sun. I've looked at plenty of projectors that talk about lumins and claim to be able to work outside and do realise that you need a decent one to be able to make it happen but first thing was to confirm the V6 is compatible as someone else said they weren't.
One problem that you may have is the distance from the V6 to the projector, as the length of HDMI cable is limited, for example a 4K signal will not work beyond 10ft whereas lower signal can go at a max of 50ft with the max of 50ft you will need high quality cables which will come at a premium.
I dud have a v6 and indoors worked well with the projector I had, now running a v360 and still no issues, just had to watch the HDMI cable length which was approx 15ft. One was of getting around the length issue would be to use a HDMI wireless send/receiver pair.

I think you should to check the brightness of the projector and only go for a reputable make of projector as there is a lot of chatter about some of the cheaper no-name chinese projectors basically lying about how bright they are.
