To begin with, apologies if this is posted in the wrong area, I didn't really know which forum area would be best.

Problem I am trying to solve is how to view HBO now via my projector without purchasing any extra hardware.

In the media room, I have :

Projector - JVC X-500
Yamaha Aventage 2040
Oppo - BDP-103D

In another room I have an iMac running current OS.
We also have a current iphone, some older iphones, a samsung note 3, a linux laptop
Wireless network (which is spotty in the media room)
Cable internet to each room running back to a central node zero.

What is the least painful way to watch HBO now on the projector without buying new hardware?

You're going to need some sort of hardware to deliver the stream to the projector. The simplest thing to do is to just buy Apple TV and be done with it.

Move the imac into the media room and display port out to your receiver. Hbo now will work fine in safari on your imac.

Otherwise buy a ATV3 , for hbo now or a firetv / roku and subscribe to slingtv.
