I will have the use of a front projector (Epson PowerLite Home 10) for a month to try it out. I haven't received it yet, but I've been reading over the literature to make sure I have everything set up so I can hit the ground running when it arrives. But I'm being thrown off by one of the requirements in the user's manual. It says: "Make sure the projector is within ... 5 feet of the image source"--meaning the DVD player, or whatever is being connected for display. Why? Is this a technical issue (poor image quality if greater distance)? Is it a safety issue (too long a cord)? For the purposes of the trial, since this will just be a temporary setup, I was planning to run a long component-video cable from my DVD player, where it's part of my TV setup (which, essentially would be behind the portable screen I'll be using), to the projector, about 15 feet away. But if I have to move the player next to the projector (within 5 feet), this will greatly change what I'm thinking. Anyone have any insight?
