how is that machine mounted ? i don't see any mounting points on top (i think).
It hangs upside down if you mount it on the ceiling and in the menu you flip the image and it will show the proper way around, very common with most projectors.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20

Re: planning stage

Whoever you buy it from will recommend a mount that they sell.

www.projectorpeople.com is offering a free mount right now.
Quote:

* Receive a 2-year limited warranty or 2,000 hours limited warranty (whichever comes first, excluding lamp) Click here for rebate claim form. Offer good 4/1/2009 through 6/30/2009.
* FREE with purchase - 25 foot HDMI 1.3 cable, and universal projector ceiling mount! Shipping charges apply to promotional items. Offer good now through 6/30/2009, or while supplies last.
I think I paid about $150-160 for my Chief mount.

You usually won't find these discounted very much. The PT-AE2000U, last years model, is still selling for $2000.

Re: planning stage

thanx, guys.

the mount, i will make that = Fabricator .

i found a thread that said they were on sale for $2300 iirc, about 6 months ago.

as it is now, i have time to wait, and ask more questions. as the wife REALLY wants her bathroom/shower rebuilt. a complete gut. i think i am going to get started on that this weekend. so when its done, i will be open to get what "I" want

2 more Q's :

i am assuming its 120v power ?
and it "comes" with a remote ?

Re: planning stage

Mine is behind me. It will work most of the time ... bouncing off the screen, but for macros, it is not so good. A remote IR transmitter is needed for macros... or emitters.

Sonnie is right, my remote turns it on and off just fine as well as the signal simply bounces off the screen.

Re: planning stage

good. but now that i think about it. once it is on and adjusted for the movie, what else is it good for

i was looking at that screen size site. seems a 7' wide anamorphic would be about 4" taller than what i have. so that is where i will start testing, when the time comes.

Re: planning stage

guys. i was reading on another forum. a guy* was saying that a 110ish" at 10-12' a 720 is the same PQ as a 1080p. "if" this is true, why would guys be spending $$$$ more for a 1080p ?

* = this "guy". i don't know how knowledgable he is. but he seemed to be.
