Greetings all,

I could use some help with choosing a projector for my Christmas light display.

Ideally, it would play a video file stored internally or on a flash drive whenever it gets power. Simple, power on- video plays. There could not be any sort of power up logo, start screen or significant delay.

I would be projecting video of falling snowflakes onto my driveway from about 12 ft overhead.

I can deal with weatherproofing issues since I'm in Decatur, GA.

I'd rather go this route than to have to run video cabling roughly 100 ft from where the controlling computer sits.

Budget is around $500 +/-.

Thanks
Tony

Christmaslightshow.com sells a projector that has a USB hookup which they talk about using a SD card with it. I'd check there to at least give you some ideas.

Thanks Jason,

I was looking for something with more light output than the ones they offer there
