So I have looked at these forums for a while and finally decided to make an account and ask some Q's. I have looked around here for answers to my problem but to no avail. So I have a Viewsonic PJD5123 that I bought a few years ago and now i want to hang it in my fitness room. I have HD cable from comcast but all the other tvs in my house have comcast boxes. I do have a coaxial plug in the fitness room. So my question is can I connect my projector to the coaxial in the room with some sort of aftermarket converter and get hd channels or is it not worth it on my projector. Or do I have to buy yet another comcast box. Your help is greatly appreciated.

You need another box. Or run component cables and audio from one of your other boxes to the room. The projector is 800x600 resolution so not HD, a Standard def box with composite video out would be the simple least expensive route unless the other box is just in the next room.
