    Hi all, I was contemplating between Epson 2040 (because of cost, 2 yr warranty, low bulb cost ) or other DLP (better contrast?) but saw a good deal and bought the epson. Setup: This will go in my living room (rented house). Projector to screen will be ~15 feet and that requires ~140" screen...

    Right now I have 12 recessed lights wired into three zones down to Lutron dimmers. I was wondering if there was a way to dim the lights with an Ipad. Was hoping for like a blue tooth online module of some sort. Any help?

    Anyone used a remote controlled outlet for their pro amps such as Insteon or X10? I'm planning for my HT and will likely use a pro amp for the subs but they have no 12V trigger and I am extremely lazy. It would be nice to turn everything on in the closet with the remote. I planned on having a...

    Just a quick question. Which is better in a room with somewhat poor light control ... a gray screen with 1.0 gain (Elite CineGray) or a high gain white screen with 1.8 gain (Elite PowerGain)? Btw, my projector is a Mitsubishi HC1500 and the screen size I'm thinking of going with is 106"...

    I am creating a small media room ( 12.5 X 9 - 2 or 3 person cap.) I will be using the room mainly for my PC and gaming, but I will have a tuner card and HD movies to play. I can light control it completely, but from the calculators I've been using the room may be tolerant of some ambient light...

    I don't mean to pollute the forum with a ton of threads. This one though is a nice item for more than just DIY Screens, it can be a cool system for commercial screens or even larger wall mounted flat screen TVs. This remote controlled drape motor works with any standard curtain traverse rod...
