    Movable Ceiling-Mounted Projector?

    What size picture are you going for? What are the biggest and smallest sizes? That would help. Also, 7 feet from the ground puts the image pretty close to the floor. Make sure you measure that off as well.

    Composite versus Component

    What is the difference in physical makeup of a 3 RCA plug composite cable, and a 3 RCA plug component cable?

    HDTV Calibration???

    I just got Avia today. I'm trying to calibrate with a Samsung 4663 DLP and a Samsung HD941 DVD player through HDMI. None of the test really work. Am I doing something wrong? It won't even allow me to go to the tint section.

    Upscaling/HDef DVD Player merged thread

    I just received my Samsung HD941 tonight. I immediately hooked it up to my Samsung 4663 DLP TV. My wife and son had just finished Ice Age using a 3 year old sony progressive scan through S-Video. I put Ice Age back in and watched about 10 minutes on the 941. We were absolutely blown away with...

    Location of FP Image on Wall

    I don't. I will have a single row. I don't want it high, I want it about 30" off the floor. How high do I need to mount my projector off the floor, if projecting a 100" picture? Can anyone answer this?

    is it ok to use play XBOX on a big screen CRT TV?

    I played my playstation and then XBox on an RCA 52" CRT RPTV for over 5 years and never had ANY screen burn in of ANY type.

    Wall mounting bookshelves question

    Don't use a toggle bolt. Look at your local home store for some different drywall anchors. They make ones that will hold up to 75lbs without a stud. I have used them on all kinds of stuff.

    Upscaling/HDef DVD Player merged thread

    Did you recalibrate when switching between players? If not, it's not a true comparison.

    Upscaling/HDef DVD Player merged thread

    I have a Samsung TV, so I bought a Samsung 941. It showed better than the 950 on 3rd party tests, and it was $25 cheaper than the 850 sells at BB or CC. I bought it on eBay. I don't have it yet, but I'm anticipating its arrival. The Sony 5-disc changer will then begin duty on my Infocus 4805.

    Do you have a picture of these installed?

    Surround Sound - Worth it?

    $300 isn't going to get you a [email protected]#s sub, or a high end receiver. If that's your budget, I'd say get a center and used sub.

    FP Ceiling Mount

    I just recently bought an Infocus 4805 FP. I need to mount it to the ceiling. I know that a number of people make their own mounts, but I don't have time for that right now (unless someone can send me some real good plans). I also don't want to pay $150 for a retail mount. I've been scouring...

    Anyone with a Projector *and* a TV?

    I use a 46" Samsung DLP for daily viewing and some movies. The Infocus 4805 is dedicated movies, Xbox, or football. They are in different rooms, however.

    Underwhelmed by SVS in new room

    Thanks Ron. Tom has been helpful too. I'm gathering all the data, then will try some options. Does SVS have a trade-up program? You should. Brian

    Underwhelmed by SVS in new room

    Okay, then since my old place opened up in several places, I guess you'd say they are then equal. Your point about having to add a subwoofer is noted. But please understand that I had the subwoofer sized for the LARGER SPACE when I bought it, and it is underperforming currently. Yes, I...
