Okay, so first the background on the project. Here's the link to the project I'm working on:

Tom's Guide

I'm at the stage of assembly trying to put the screen onto the projector. The LCD I ended up with does not have the secondary input as the one in Tom's guide. So this means that I have some additional hardware that needs to stay connected so I can keep using the video cable. Below are two pictures to show what i'm talking about. Hopefully you won't have to be signed in to yahoo to view. It worked for me:

So in the picture you'll see that I have arrows pointing to the connection I'm having an issue with. It does not appear that I can bend that orange cable connected to the screen. The second pic shows the whole deal on the other side of the projector. I'm eying the dimensions, but it looks about 1ftx2ft. It does not specify on Tom's guide whether the screen needs to be faced down or not, but theirs looks like it is. I figured this would be the best place to get ideas from, so any suggestions would be great. thx.

Link to Tom's guide is broken...here:
Part 1
Part 2
Oh, and check your second pic link. I don't know yahoo either as I just started with them a day or two ago. If you figure out how to publish pics with yahoo, please inform me as well so I can get pics up in here in the forums:p

Anyway, you may have missed this pic in the Part 1 of the series, as it looks like the answer to whay you're looking for:
Tape to hold up that card, and the downward facing LCD

The one about the tape?? Weird...I tried it again and again just now and it takes me right to the pic.

Try that one please...otherwise, it's the last picture on the "Assembly: The Projector's LCD Panel" section of Part 1.
