    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I don't have a clue what you are talking about. I didn't get a different sub. i have a 20-39 PC+. The same sub I had in my old house is now in my new house. I'm sorry if you read somewhere that I got a smaller sub. I have the same sub. I'm going to try some different things and see how it...

    They would be on carpet. My basement is fully finished. I don't want to mess with the carpet. It was expensive.

    Underwhelmed by SVS in new room

    I got some feedback at Tom from SVS. One of the things he noted is that my seating position is almost exactly half way between the front and rear walls, and I may be sitting in a dead spot (a null I think you call it). I'm going to try moving around the room. If all else fails, I'm going to...

    Upscaling/HDef DVD Player merged thread

    Based on this, the 941 through HDMI looks like an okay DVD player. I'll be feeding my Samsung 4663 DLP with it. They are going cheaper than the 850's for some reason. Anybody know why? The 841's are going for $50 on eBay new, but I see they are pretty bad on the benchmarks.

    Is the 941 an upgrade to the Samsung 850 then? Does anyone have it? Reviews? I'd like to get one for my Samsung TV.

    Underwhelmed by SVS in new room

    The cement walls vary. The wall that the screen is on goes all the way up 11'. The ceiling height is 10'. In front of the cement wall is a frame 2X4 wall which is insulated, drywalled, and plastered. On the left sidewall the cement only goes up 4 feet, and then an exposed all goes up to the 10'...

    Underwhelmed by SVS in new room

    I'd do that too if I knew how the heck to do that! I've been in contact with Tom from SVS. I faxed him over my approximate room specs/layout. I'll see what he has to say. I can't put a full floor riser in, I already paid $8 sq/ft for carpet (ouch). I could put the couch on a riser, but I...

    Thanks, how high off the floor do you need to mount the Infocus 4805 upside down in order to get that distance? I'm asking from the floor because we all have different ceiling heights.

    Underwhelmed by SVS in new room

    My sub will do 20hz, so I don't think that's the issue. I am using the fight scene in matrix (when morpheus breaks his knee through the floor of the dojo) as my reference scene. Before, it would literally shake the couch, now, it's only above audible. Quite dissapointing. I'll contact SVS. Brian
