    Folks... The Epson projector calculator tells me my Epson 5030UB projecting to a 120" screen needs to basically be in the center of the screen. This is a 4' drop for the most part... IS THIS RIGHT? All other projectors I have used I was able to mount the projector near the height of the top of...

    Hi, I have a BenQ W600+ which puts out about 636 Lumens at its lowest brightness and calibrated, and I'm currently projecting on a light grey wall. I wanted if anybody would have any experience with going with a simple dark grey paint for a projector in this class and how dark they went to get...
  4. Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Model is Epson 705HD 720p. It down scales the incoming 1080p cable box pretty well and live sports are crystal clear. Someone mentioned on a different forum, not HT related, that it may not be worth it to get a Blu Ray player if the PJ is 720 native. Blu Ray is the only thing I really know...

    I have wanted to set up a screen and projector for sometime but cannot make myself pull the plug because I am afraid of choosing the wrong projector. Plus, I am not an expert and not sure of what I am doing. The projector will... 1) Go in a family room that has a white ceiling and 10 foot...

    I have 184" diagonal (160" wide with 10' tall ceilings) wall that I can put my screen on. Obviously, if I could go this big, everyone else would so this must be wrought with issues. What I want to balance is the screen size with the actual ability to see a good quality picture (on a scale of...

    Whenever I shoot a solid white image, I'm now noticing a faint redish splotch on the lower left corner now. The projector is an Acer 7531D. Anyone have any ideas on what it could be? I was thinking maybe it needs to be cleaned(PJ is a year old, 457 hours) are there any good resources on cleaning...

    First of all, thanks you guys on here for recommending the paint for my PJ screen. I have my epson 8350 mounted on the ceiling but my power cord can't reach the closest electrical outlet and I want to know if I can use an extension. Also, with all this new receivers that's out with hdmi...
  9. Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    This is the deal breaker for me. I need to be able to use the projector as a PC monitor. My big concern is with the scaler. I need the screen real estate that 1080 provides, but I want a clear, non flickering display. If anyone could ease my concerns by their experience running a PC in 1080P...

    Ok.. this didn't seem to fit under PJ Topic area or Screen topic area exclusively... so here goes. Equipment: Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 1080 UB & Elite Cinenatension 2 106" diag. Options for controlling screen are via IR/RF or via 12V trigger (as in projector trigger out). I have only dug...

  13. General Screen Discussion
    This topic started in another thread, but it was a bit off-topic there so I'm starting this one. In the other thread I said "Perhaps Texas Instruments is simplifying the matter too much, but their explanation of how a single-chip DLP projector works ( http://www.dlp.com/tech/what.aspx ) says...

    I'll let you guess what came in this box.... I have to set it up on a ladder for the time being, just to decide on a screen size, then I'll ceiling mount it and build a proper screen. I'll be posting a few times tonight as I progress through this. All I have to upload pics from is my...
