    • On Windows computers, press your "Windows key" and your "P" key at the same time. Select Duplicate to send the image to the projector.
    • On a Mac, navigate to Apple menu () > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement tab > check Mirror Displays.

  3. Make sure all power switches are turned on (see top of sheet).
  4. The Kramer switcher must be set to DVD/VCR (Input #6).

Using the Blu-ray Player

  5. Turn on the Blu-ray player using the SAMSUNG remote or using the power button located on the right of the player.
  6. To insert/remove your Blu-ray disk, open the Blu-ray player's disk tray using the Open/Close button on the upper left corner of the Sony BD remote, or use the open/close button located on the right of the player.

Leaving the projector running for extended periods while it's not in use significantly shortens the life of the projector. To turn off the projector, push the power button on its remote twice.
