Okay, now that I have pretty much decided to convert to projector, I need suggestions on how to spend $5000 to get the best possible projector and screen. Below are a couple of photos of the room, along with key characteristics/dimensions: Distance from Viewing Wall to Sofa Seat Back: 14.5 ft Width of Viewing Wall: 16 ft Ceiling Height: 8 ft 6 in Width from Outside of Front Left Speaker to Outside of Front Right Speaker: 8 ft Height from Top of Center Speaker to Ceiling: 5 ft 4 in Surface Colors: Ceiling is white, walls are Sherwin-Williams SW6143 Basket Beige Current TV (going back to Samsung): UN65D8000 Usage: Primarily movies at night, with some TV viewing and Wii play (I'm not a gamer). I do watch football all day Sundays during the NFL season. Budget: $5000 Bottom Line: I would like for you more experienced forum members to recommend an exact make/model projector and screen for this application. Concerns: Right now I have my Blu-ray, DirecTV STB, and Wii all wired to the AVR via HDMI, and then a single HDMI cable running from the AVR to the TV. Will I still be able to do this with a projector? I currently have an Ethernet cable wired to the TV. Will I be able to do the same with a projector? (can I still stream Netflix, etc., or can/must I do that via the Blu-ray?) Given my entertainment center there below the TV, will this allow me to use a 100" or larger screen, or is it simply too large/high? Although my drapes aren't technically "black-out" drapes, they do a pretty good job of keeping the light out when closed. There is an identical window with identical drapes directly to the right of where I am standing to take the first photo. Is this enough light control? Will fan noise be a concern since I'm assuming the projector will be directly above the primary viewing position? How big of a deal are the various source material aspect ratios where screen size/shape is concerned? Questions: What would be the very next step up from the Epson Home Cinema 5010 or JVC DLA-RS45? Would you recommend a fixed screen mounted on the wall, or one of those automatic retractable ones? When you suggest a screen size for me, can you also indicate how far back on the ceiling the projector will need to be mounted? Is there any "warm up" time for a projector, or will I still be able to grab a plate of food, walk downstairs, turn everything on, and immediately start watching TV or a movie? If a select a projector like the Epson Home Cinema 5010, JVC DLA-RS45, or the next step up, will there be a lot of calibration necessary, or is it pretty much ready to go right out of the box. Or, will there be calibration settings posted here I would be able to use? I'm in Southwest Missouri, so having an ISF tech come out is not an option. I do have the Disney WOW Blu-ray. I currently have 5 pair of Samsung SSG-3300GR 3D Active Glasses. Is it possible I will still be able to use these with the projector I select?
