    Macbooks and iMacs do not have a video in port, so you won't be able to do that unless you buy something like the elgato eyetv, but that would be a freaky mess of cables and a pain to work.

    for a projector, you'd need the official apple cable plus probably another cable to match the projector's input.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I have a normal AVI cable. It works on the projector but I can only see videos and pictures. Is it possible to view the home page and apps through a projector......?????:confused::confused:

    I have no idea, but I think you need a developers kit to do that. I believe that is what they use with apple keynotes.

    You probably don't want to do it like this, but this website just films the ipod touch in a dark environment.
