I am getting audio and video through the projector. I have an Epson Home Cinema 3020 being supplied video through my Dell Laptop. I would like to connect to my Sony stereo receiver, but the default is putting audio to the projector. I do not see output from the projector, so my sense is that there must be a setting on the laptop to allow the audio to output through the headphone connection... does anyone know if that is possible. Thanks

The laptop should be able to be set to output audio via the headphone jack. Check the video and audio control panels. You can also use one of these:

to extract the audio from the HDMI. This will be better if you use the digital audio output to your receiver as you will get better sound and digital surround sound if your source has it. Will sound bet
