I'm researching options in replacing our CRT TV with a big screen something. TV (probably plasma since I want a thin display) or a projector. I like many of the advantages of projectors, but I have a technical hurdle. I have about 70" area where the screen needs to fit. I figure a 60" wide screen would be right. According to what I've found, the projector throw would need to be around 10 feet. The room has a vaulted ceiling and a ceiling fan. 10 feet puts it in the middle of the ceiling fan. The available mounting location would have a throw of about 16 feet. Is there a way to set up a projector within these limitations? I've seen projectors with "optional lens". Do these allow you to change the throw distance?
