    I'm looking for a projector that's compatible with the AppleTV 2, and affordable.

    What do you guys recommend?

    I think that any would work. I have an older 720P Optoma, but you might want to grab something with 1080P capability since Apple will likely grow offerings in that area in the future. To be honest though even the 420P videos look great at 110" in my setup.

    Yes, the OP wants a projector, but yeah anything with HDMI (that supports HDCP) will do it.

    Sound???

    Mate, but what about the sound?
    I am thinking of buying a projector to use with my ATV2, however with sound and video combined in one HDMI cable and no sound-out options on the projector, how does a bloke get the sound to his stereo?

    Use a breakout cable to separate the audio and video. Video goes to the projector, digital audio to your A/V theater.

    heard that's a great projector. I just got the new Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010. 3D movies look awesome! All my sources go through an Onkyo receiver first so the hdmi sound goes to my surround sound speakers. My projector also has speakers on it but I've never turned them on. The optical out would also work for audio if you don't have any way to do it through hdmi. That's how I did it before I got a receiver with enough hdmi inputs.
