The room that I am using for my home theater setup is 15x12x8, and I just recently read in Practical Home Theater (Robert Harley) that viewing distance from the TV should be 5x the height of the tv. Is this true? I was hoping to put a 36inch in my room, but according to this setup I would have to be 12 feet away from the tv since the screen height is 30 inches (30x5=150/12=12.5 feet). Does this make any sense? It seems like people (with analog non-widescreen anyway) who have a 36inch analog would have to have huge rooms seeing as how the viewing distance is usually the middle of the room. If this is true then I might have to go with a 27 inch, which would suck majorly since I can't afford a 16:9 ration widescreen tv. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
