    I bought an iPad 2 to use in the classroom. I have a Dell projector that only projects 800x600. Is their anyway to change the resolution on my iPad 2 for presentations? I tried importing a 800x600 keynote file from my iMac, but when I opened it on my iPad it sized it up and wouldn't project. Does anybody know how to fix this? I'd be in your debt.:eek:

    Does this projector have HDMI?

    Are you using the digital connector or the VGA one? As I understand it, the digital adaptor will only work with the HDMI connection. For older projectors etc, you need to use the VGA adaptor and it will keep the lower resolution.

    I have the VGA adaptor but no use

    I have a VGA adaptor, not an HDMI. The projector will only project at 800 x 600, but it tells me the resolution for my iPad2 is too high to project. The VGA cable doesn't do any downsizing for me. :) I'm curious if there is an app, or something in settings that will allow me to lower my screen resolution during presentations so that my projector can handle it.
