    I ordered one of these on Monday, Perhaps I got the last one:D
    Still waiting for it to arrive, Hopefully before Xmas
    I have a question though for those that are already using one
    What is the USB slave for mouse support do? Do I need a USB cord, I read a review somewhere that said you need the USB cord to use the remote
    Any advice appreciated

    I've mine up and running and haven't plugged anything in the USB port. I believe it's there if you want to control the projector through the PC, but the remote still works without it (I'll be stuffed if it didn't as mine is ceilling mounted and my celling is over 3m high).

    You know what? After reading your post I went looking for it on some credits (white text on black background) and I could see it but I had to look up and down very very fast to see it, but sitting so far from the screen as I mentioned before I don't need to look around the screen so it's not an issue for me.

    I paid $640.20 and it arrived today, I'm just mucking around with it now and it looks good so far
    I have to go back to work now but will have a better play later on
    Oh and thanks for the replies about the USB cable, I'll muck around with that later too

    Cheers

    in regards to controlling it from the computer with the usb cord, has anyone done this yet? I was thinking of getting a IR blaster and connecting it to the PC to control it but if a USB cord can do it that would be just as easy.
