But, before that:
How to Connect PS4 to Projector?
Here’s a 5-step process to connect PlayStation 4 with your projector:
- Obtain an HDMI cable (either provided with PS4 or your projector) and power OFF both projector and PS4
- Connect one end of the HDMI cable to the ‘HDMI out’ port on PlayStation 4
- Connect another end of the HDMI cable to the appropriate HDMI port on your projector
- Power ON both the devices
- Select the appropriate HDMI input source from you’re projector’s OSD menu to display the PS4 content
Thus in these 5 simple steps, you can connect PS4 to projector using the HDMI ports and HDMI cable.
While the steps involved in this procedure are simple yet, the provided HDMI cable with your PS4 or projector maybe around 1 meter long.
However, if your projector is ceiling mounted or there’s a significant amount of distance between your PS4 and projector. You’d need a very long HDMI cable, i.e., 10-feet or 15-feet HDMI cable, to make a proper connection.
What if I already have a long HDMI cable connected to the projector?
Suppose you already have another device connected to the projector through a long cable. You do not need to get another long cable.
In such a case, you could connect two devices to a projector via a single cable. A device like an HDMI switch will help you connect two devices to a projector with a single cable.
Let’s say you want to connect a cable TV and PS4 to a single HDMI port on your projector and a single long cable.
You can get an HDMI switch like this one. With this device, you can connect your Cable TV and PS4 to one end of the HDMI switch with HDMI cables. While through the other end, you can connect your long HDMI cable from the HDMI switch to the HDMI port on your projector.
To toggle between the input sources, you can press the button on the HDMI switch. This button will cycle through your Cable TV and PS4 input.
How to connect PS4 to projector without HDMI port?
It is possible that you’d have an old projector that doesn’t sport an HDMI port. In such a scenario, you’ll need an HDMI adapter that sports the same connection port on your projector.
Suppose your projector has a VGA port. In this case, you can get an HDMI to VGA adapter for your PS4. Using this adapter, you can connect your PS4 to HDMI via a VGA cable.
Furthermore, instead of an adapter, you can directly buy an HDMI to VGA cable. This cable will transfer and convert digital signals from the HDMI port to an analog signal via a VGA port.
