Hi, I’m new to the forum, but a friend told me this is where the real experts are. I’m a little leery of going down to the local consumer electronics shop, because the advice there is more likely to be for the salesperson’s benefit. I'm about to relocate a home theater and am looking for some equipment and setup advice. I have an older home and there are some interesting architectural details I would like to work with, if possible. I recognize that this may result in less-than-optimal seating area. My old setup was in a smaller room and used a wide-screen TV, but I think all the audio stuff will transfer nicely. The room is 14' by 24', but I'd like to set up the projector to go across the short dimension (14') to take advantage of a built-in frame on one of the walls. The frame is 66" by 40" and the top is 10" from the ceiling. This dimension is wider than 4:3, but not as wide as 16:9. I would like to use a ceiling-mounted projector, and prepare and paint the wall itself for the screen. (The room has exterior windows, so I’m planning on heavy curtains to make the room pretty dark, but not light-tight.) My budget for the projector and screen is ~$2,500. My questions are: What projectors do folks here recommend that might work in this application? Is it possible to define presets for the projector so that I can fill as much of the frame as possible in 4:3 and 16:9 modes? (So it fills vertically in 4:3 and horizontally in 16:9.) What are my options for making the wall into a screen? Am I crazy for wanting to do a project like this on this kind of budget? Thanks in advance!
