I've thought about ceiling mounting as well, but that's probably
not an option for various reasons. Oh well, I'll figure it out in the
end sometime. For now it works for the little time I have available
to actually watch something.

And for my part, I'd like to ask if anyone has personal experience with the Optoma EZ Pro models?

ive just sold my infocus x2 and im now looking for something better. its always attached through my pc where i watch dvd tv games surfing editing etc.

i love the x2 but im looking for something with a higher resolution as iim aquiring a 10 wide screen. :)
im looking toward a panasonic PT-AE700U Projector

the panasonic is a much lower lumen count but a higher resolution.

will this make my screen look darker when i have pc on or just when watching dvds etc

Happy with the projector & the price

After a lot of looking, I wound up with the HP 6120 -
no big complaints either. Blacks are black, colour good,
contrast okay in ambient and pretty nice in the dark.

Fry's had an open box for 1399. nice.

I'm really needing a screen tho now.
If anyone in Vancouver knows where to pick up
a DaLite Model B, the 94" 2.5, lemme know

I screen, you screen

Hmm - a good screen makes the image to me.

I've left theatres and not gone back due to bad screens-
but I was a projectionist for years so pickier than normal.

The tear thats patched and left there,
that soda pop stain, the wrinkle - I can't let it go.

a couple hyundies for a screen is no big if you consider what
the film itself cost -

now to find a local one where I don't have to pay
huge shipping that doubles the cost. GST is bad enough.

Yes, a damaged screen is a bummer (distracting)...presumably buying new, even a lower-priced model, would avoid that problem.

Tough break about that GST, eh? I don't suppose the feds would let you get away with smuggling one in from Seattle, y'know take it out of the box, swaddle it in gaffers tape, make it look used? :-)

projector 'banding' in new setup

it was, of course, too soon to crow about the new projector.

worked fine in the old location, but at the new digs w/ a 10m
(30 ft) cable to it, there is pronounced light and dark 'banding'
scrolling bottom to top - almost like old helical scan flop.

Its all dig, so its got to be refresh/Hz or something?
checked connections, RTM again, checked online, no mentions -

Anyone run into this? Is it AC interference?
[lack of] cable shielding, grounding?

thx/TM

Ah yes, a lovely projector (Qualia 004) for a mere 25 grand.

And 4096 x 2160 (Cinema HD) on the SRX... Ay mami, ay papi!!!!

www.tvtechnolgy.com says:
"The SRX-R110 4K projector is slated to sell for $80,000 (plus $15,000 for the lens) when released in January."

Maybe after I get my tax refund... (grin)
