Can I use the LF2 as a normal projector with external video input?

 

Currently, LF2 is limited in use as a normal projector with external video input. It does work via an HDMI connection, but features like volume control and input switching are not guaranteed. Please note -- there is no keystone correction, so playing video will always result in a regular/rectangular image.

    How does this function work ? The remote has no function but power on/of + focus?

    To use this, you'd plug your video player into the LF2 via HDMI cable. However, at this time features like volume control and input switching are not guaranteed.

    Could there be an update to add more functions to also use it as a normal beamer?

    With an AppleTV 3 (1080p) it's very buggy. it works but:

    Sound is LOUD! Would be nice to use the remote for this (which is now very minimal)
    Lot of buttons without function.

    Would love to see keystone correction, this could be possible via a firmware update I guess..

    Hi Dennis, 

    Thank you for the feedback. I can definitely see how that would be useful. We get many requests and while we would love to address them all, our product team has a process to evaluate each. I have made sure to add this to their list. 

    In the meantime, could you tell me which priority you'd give to the following features?  

    - ability to adjust keystone

    - more flexibility with remote features (sound, input control) 

    - flipping / mirroring the projector image

    Hi Ashley, thanks for the reply! πŸ™πŸΌ 

    Don't make it hard on me now.. πŸ˜‰ I guess the above two would be much appreciated.

    adjusting keystone for playing content via my Apple TV would be great.. 
    Is this happens, it would be great the adjust the volume..

    And flipping/ mirroring not so, BUT! Using the LF2 what its build for, a would love to hang it on the ceiling, so a 180 degrees option, I guess the will be the first priority.. 

    I hope the product team has some extra time to handle all this πŸ˜‹ 

    Thanks in advance!

    In Lak'ech Ala K’in, Dennis.
