Need new long throw Projector

I have spent a LOT of time over a Projector Central trying to find a good new projector.

Back when I had money (Before two kids in college) I build a dedicated theater room.... Its GREAT but the projector sits behind the Seats quite a ways away from the Screen (22' to be exact) This gives us a HUGE image (150") but it is a bit dim.

We want to upgrade from 720p to 1080 and up our brightness a bit.

Out old Projector was a Sanyo PVL-60HT, 1200 lumens and 720p

Apparently it used every one of those Lumes well as many of the new projectors with TWICE the Lumens are actually dimmer on the screen.

SO... I need a replacement for the Sanyo that is BRIGHT, 1080P and can deal with my 22' throw and 150" screen. I am posting here as I hoping there are projectors that don't show up on PC... or ideas or something...

I also don't have the $4500 to spend on a projector that I apparently spent many many years ago...

The PC guys say to move the projector closer, but the wife has nixed that idea because of noise, unsightliness, cables and more...
