This may be a little long so I apolagize. I need help selecting a video source for my HT. The room is 13.5' wide by 33' long with a split 7 & 8' ceiling with the viewing distance being 16-19'. I am not sure on some of the techinal terms so bear with me. I currently have DirecTv without the HD reciever. I would like to say it will be mainly for movies, but I know I will end up watching tv on it also. 1.) Should I look for a video source that up-convert the signal or purchase the DirecTv with HD that would convert the signal? 2.) What sort of picture will I get from a FP from an anolog signal? Will it stretch the picture to a 16:9 fromat with out making the people look twice as fat? 3.) The guy at the store told me that the Infocus and a few others where meant for still pictures and not movies. I thought that was a load of crap, correct? I was looking at a 2003 Mitsubishi 73411 that looked pretty good and it would convert the signals from my regular DirecTv. The new model 73513 would not so I would have to upgrad to a HD reciever and the 73513 is about $5500 versus the $3700 discounted 73411. This looked good but I would still like to see what it would take to get a FP to give me a good pircture from DirecTv and OTR signals. 4.) What would you all do if it was you? I am wide open to sugestions. I would prefer a 65" or larger picture and under $4000. I have always wanted a FP and a drop screen, not a permanent wall mount.
