    The only room where I could possibly set up FPTV has both of these drawbacks.
    Is it still possible to deal with these shortcomings?
    I'm actually worried more about the windows as I have 8 large ones (5 on one side, 2 on another, 1 on the third wall). The fourth wall has a patio door. There is also a five-sided window near the top of the ceiling (damn the architect!)
    I currently have a RPTV set-up but the itch for something better has arrived...

    Well, there is no law that states you have to mount the projector in the ceiling. [​IMG]
    You can create very tasteful and attractive installations where the projector is mounted at floor- or table level. Perhaps inside a specially built table?
    The windows are a bigger problem; don't know how nice looking blackout curtains are when not pulled down. Still, depends entirely on your budget how nicely things get solved, I'd guess.

    Go for a digital projector with >2000 Lumens rating. Some of them are bright enough and actually look better with some ambient light.
