Hi guys,
please let me know how can I use the projector (epson...) with my mac, so that when I have it connected and powered on, I want to see only the image THROUGH the projector. I would like that the main screen, turn blank or black. Is that possible?
My system is an iMac 27 and the Lion of the mountain... :)

Just turn your iMac screen brightness all the way down.

FYI, imac's wont go 0% even with the brightness all the way down, like the laptops. i Have my imac display always at "minimum" and its still bright as a normal display. Cranking it to full is "too much".

Check out the application "Backdrop". It's free (and available through the Mac App Store or the author's website).
