Giving a power point presentation from my e750
Hi guys. Im going to be doing some power point presentations next year and was considering using my PDA. I've installed the ATI presentation software that came with the PDA.
What else do I need to do?
How will my PDA read the power point files?
Do I need a usb expansion pack?
I would really appreciate info from someone in the know.

Yes, you do need to buy the expansion pack. It snaps onto the bottom and gives you a usb host (not needed for powerpoint) and the rgb out plug. That plug is just like the one on your laptop and you connect it to your projector. Then you just open your powerpoint with the built in IA presenter in the Programs menu and open your presentation. Then you use the IA screen mirror app to display whats on your screen to the projector.

Is the mirror application just activated once after connecting the device to the projector?

It might automatically open, I can't remember. I've only used it once. If it isn't you just open IA screen mirror just like IA presenter and it has all the settings right there. It's very easy. This is assuming that the software pack stayed the same for the E750 as for my E740 which I think it did. Once it's running you have a setup like a mini PC powerpoint with the forward and backward slide buttons etc.

Just make sure you pre check the resolution before you start your presentation. If you take your own projector you will be OK, I usually borrow the prospects projector and sometimes you need to do some set up. Also, when you start the screen mirror in front of a customer, make sure your today screen does not show your upcoming appointments for their competitor! Been there, done that.

Do you have to start screen mirror?
I've only tried connecting to a projector once, but IIRC, the presenter program does all that is required to get the image up on the wall.
When I tried it first, I started screen mirror first, then presenter. I got two images up at the same time - one overlapping the other.
Killing Mirror seemed to clear it.
It takes a little bit of fiddling around to get it set up correctly, but once it's there, I was impressed with it and think that it could be used as a real alternative to a laptop. Presenter is not the best software in the world control-wise but I think it does the job. The pdf manual gives a few useful instructions.
Now if only you could buy a pocket-projector......

I use IA presenter all the time......you do NOT run IA screen mirror. Presenter has its own direct connection to the Expansion pack.
IA mirror is used simply clone the PPC display through the VGA port. If you run IA presenter and screen mirror at the same time, your PPC will be very slooooooow...........
For those road warriors who present from their PPC, I found a really cool (although expensive) accessory. The Keyspan USB presentation mouse is ultra-compact, has an integrated laser pointer, and works FANTASTIC on the Toshiba expansion pack.
No drivers required. The USB reciever is tiny, no bigger than a thumb drive. I got mine at CompUSA. You can see it online here:
