HDMI is the next generation of DVI
DVI won't play audio
Does your projector even have an audio capability?

I am sorry can you maybe suggest a model. This is confusing me. I saw some on monoprice.com but didn't know which to buy.
Is this it?: And do I need wire in addition to adapter?

Before you purchased purchased your AppleTV...... what Audio/Video source we're you connecting to your projector and will you describe the appearance of the audio/sound cable you used to make the audio connection to the smartboards external speakers that are physically mounted and attached to the projector?

I am currently using a VGA cord. I did some research and I believe I have an Infocus LP540.
My back looks just like this, except it also has a network

After reviewing all the information you've provided, as well as the attached photo.
A) The specs you've posted, although likely exceptionally close, are not those of the projector in the photograph.
B) In the photo there "appears" to be "potentially" a
input yet I can't identify this with 100% certainity from the photo
C) Another person posted a question here within the Apple Community stating: when he converted AppleTV HDMI to DVI on his projector the image reproduced by the projector was essentially so poor it was un-useable. A couple of sugesstions we're offered to him yet none were definitive nor has the guy posted an update.
HDMI is a "latest" connectivity methodolgy originating from DVI.
In order for this to function:
1) The projector will have to be able to process the HDMI to DVI correct. I don't know if it will or if it won't
2) The audio signal from the AppleTV will likely need to come from the Toslink Digital Optical Cable and I don't know if Apple TV can simultenous output audio on the HDMI and Toslink
You maybe need a converter such as think one and probably some additional input from another community member as well. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=hdmi+to+dvi+toslink+converter&hl=en&prm d=imvns&resnum=3&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=685&um=1&i e=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=13932122137538290639&sa=X&ei=9LGiT-2eJIGi8QTshYDUCA&ved=0CH wQ8gIwAw

What generation Apple TV do you possess?
What color is the Apple TV?

I have a black HDMI 1080p Apple TV.

A) If you were contemplating it, do NOT buy any of the part links I sent to you. I sent the these particular links only as "close" potential samples
B) We (you or another person within the community) will hopefully share whether AppleTV "can or does" output audio simultenous on HDMI and Digital Optical
C) Compare the photograph you posted with the back of your actual projector. Pay specfic attention to the near top right corner of the photograph. On that photo is, what appears to be, a small black colored square type shaped input for a Toslink cable. Does your "actual" projector have such an input that appears in the photo?
D) Regardless of everything I said, and based on the question asked by a different person yesterday within a different Apple Community, I have no specfic knowledge whether an HDMI to DVI down converting fitting will allow you to produce a good quality picture from your actual projector. Naturally, if the answer to (B) & (C) are in your favor, you can try it at your own risk that it doesnt work.

I've been told, Apple TV outputs audio on Digital Optical and HDMI at same time.
