Looks like S video with my eyesight. Maybe some time with the owners manual might shed some light?

It looks like a BNC connection can't really tell. Could you give us the make and model of the projector?

Edit: Could also be a type N male Rf connector

The S video connection is to the lower left on the picture. It could be a extended remote IR controller port. I have seen them on other devices - AV equipment. Can you take a close up of just the vga and that port? From my view, the port looks recessed with a small female stereo jack? Can't tell without the close up.

my projector has a internal TV tuner

So it will need somewhere to connect the antenna.

A standard Belling Lee PAL coaxial socket:

The plug that goes into it:

That's what it looks like to me.
