I got a pop up for this thing called MaxTheater.Apparently it's one of those "as seen on tv" products that can make any size tv's picture up to 175".I did a search on the forum but couldn't find anything on the subject.I definately wouldn't consider this as an alternative to buying a projection tv but just curious if anyone saw the infomercial or knows somebody who has tried this out.

I recently read another thread about this. Not a good idea from what everyone said. What happens is this: You attach their 'lens' to your TV, by way of a box that 'fits' on the front of the TV. The box is to black out light and provide the needed distance for the magnification. Then the image from your TV is magified and shown onto a wall facing the TV. I heard reports that it also flips the image upside down so your TV must sit upside down to have the image correct. (much like taking a magnifying glass at arms length, you'll see the image inverse.) People also talked of ways to make the same thing yourself from home depot parts. Again, I'm not quoting directly. However, the feeling was decided negative about this product.

I saw a bunch of these on eBay. I was curious and it was only $7. It is just two thin film magnifiers that you put on each end of a box. You use it like a telescope, basically. I had to try to build the thing myself, so I just threw it in the closet. I figured it was a waste of time and how good could the quality really be. Plus I don't want this thing sitting in my living room. DON'T DO IT!!!
