Yep, make sure you've got the video output set to go to that "monitor" (which is, in this case, your projector). Sometimes you get lucky and don't have to specifically "turn on" the secondary monitor, but most of the time you do. I know if I ever connect my PJ to my laptop, I always panic for a second when I forget to activate that second video output.

Could also be that you need to hit the Function (Fn) key and at the same time hit the F7 key on your computer.

That tells your computer to 'output' the video to the projector.

If you want to also see it still on your computer while it is also playing on the projector, hit the same keys again. Then if you want it to stop playing on the projector. Hit the keys again. Basically it cycles through those choices.
