    Okay, you can input signals into the MacBook using an EyeTV. They're very good, I don't actually have one, but the people that do say they're great and I've used one on a few occasions. Very flexible.

    To output the signal to your projector, you need a mini-DVI > VGA or mini-DVI > DVI adapter from Apple. If your projector has a DVI connection, then I recommend you take advantage of it rather than VGA, as the picture is considerably better.
