    If your projector doesn't have a digital input, you'll need a converter. If it has DVI or HDMI input then you can get away with just an adaptor. But if you adapt HDMI to DVI, what you end up with is DVI-D - which can't be adapted to VGA (only converted).

    I use ATV with my projector - quite nice - but converting digital to analog can be pricey ...

    They do work but don't support HDCP content.
