Hi... I'm new on the forum. I'm also in the process of finishing the basement in my house and am having a home theater framed in. I'm in the process of selecting a projector and the new Sharp XV-Z9000U has been mentioned to me as a good candidate, although I have not had the opportunity to see one yet. However, I was told by one salesman that there is a problem with the first generation of the new TI 16:9 chip and a new version will soon be coming out. Are there any members that have any firsthand knowledge or impressions about this projector? Also, it was mentioned to me that this new TI chip is now available to other manufacturers to incorporate in their own product offerings and I am being steered toward the DreamVision Cinema Ten Pro. Anyone have any comments about this?
