    Just try plugging in your audio cable into the headphone jack and check your phone settings. Not sure if that will work. I've got the Motorola VGA adapter and audio definitely comes out of the headphone jack. If your projector accepts VGA get one of those. Mine was pretty cheap on Amazon.

    I might not be understanding your question correctly.But if you are trying to play content from your phone to your projector via hdmi. There is no need for an additional audio cable. I connect my razr to a tv with a cable that has full size hdmi on one end and a Micro hdmi for the phone. A projector maybe different but I have used that cable on an LG and Samsung tv

    After reading your question more closely you will have no problem connecting to an HDMI projector with the Maxx. I connect my Maxx to my HDTV all the time. Just like the previous post just get a micro HDMI to HDMI cable. Audio automatically goes out via HDMI. Hopefully your projector has either speakers or audio outputs for speakers. The alternative is VGA output like I mentioned.

    The problem is the projector doesn't have audio out and is only 1w speaker. I know both audio and video will auto go via hdmi but is it possible to redirect audi via phone audio out jack? Motorola cust services have now confirmed it is possible but I would still like independent verification if poss.

    Good News. Didn't want to leave you hanging. Just tried this on my Maxx. After plugging in my HDMI to micro HDMI cable to my HDTV and selecting Webtop mode there is an option in Settings -> Sound -> Audio routing to select between HDMI audio or Phone speaker. You can then plug external speakers to your headphone jack if you so choose.

    This should work fine with your projector.

    Gotta love the versatility of the Maxx.
