My mom wants me to put together a small theater in her new basement and I would appreciate any recommendations for projectors. The screen is only going to be 78" and the room has some ambient light problems. Most of the time it will be playing standard DVDs, (don't see them going HD DVD until it is as cheap as standard DVDs) cable TV maybe High Def, and games for kids 12 and under. It is really being set up for the grandkids so no videophiles. I have been thinking of the Optoma HD70. The budget is around a grand but if I can save a little money with no real hit to the video, based on the above uses, it will allow me to put more into the audio.
