I have a Macbook (2009) and an Epson EX7200 projector, which I use mostly for work presentations. However, since I have it I might as well use it to watch movies at home. I have a great Epson HD screen that I can set up. The projector comes with a USB 2.0 cable I can use to connect it to the Macbook, but in the manual it says the highest quality is obtained with an HDMI cable. I guess I'd need an HDMI to MiniDisplay adapter cable? Is this right?

I understand that it won't pass audio through to the projector, but that's fine since I'm going to be attaching external speakers to my computer anyways.

Yes hdmi is the best by far
