Stew and Farout all I can say is WOW. Great looking systems guys. I couldn't post my inferior 57" dlp and surround after seeing those two awesome set ups. I suffer from screen envy. Farout that is one hell of a screen.

Mine is 16:9 amd 8' wide (110" diag). I would like to go CIH but need to wait for a new projector that does vertical scaling (see Farout, I learned a bit). I am not sure what PJ I'd want. I like the Mitsu because I can get the size with shorter distance.

Pales in comparison with what has been shown so far. Seeing the previous pics reminds me why I don't read HT mags anymore. Gives me a case of the wants.
Note the Lutron Lighting Spacer system in the upper right. There is a 12 inch 6500K backlight behind the TV that is switched. When I hit the play button on the DVD player the overhead can lights dim to off and the backlight comes on. The end of the macro string then sends the remote to the DVD function.

Nothing at all wrong with your setup! Nice and clean, looks good!

Thanks. Before I bought the plasma I debated a RP system. But the room is all wrong for it. The wife and I will probably move in a few years. The next house must have the right size room for a dedicated HT.

Serious case of "screen envy" for Farout777, and "seat envy" for Stew4HD

Damn!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm ashamed to put mine up. I sure can't say mine is bigger than yours! Farout and Stew I believe just scared the rest of us away. Great going you two.


Seriously, very impressive Farout and Stew. Would love a setup like that, but house floor plan eliminates that thought. My 46 inch LCD can't come close to comparing.

Thanks.
The key to the BDI for me was the Monitor center speaker fit in the top drawer, by about a quarter of an inch. And the finish matched my Monitors as well.
Not familiar with Studio Tech. That's one I missed reading about.

Alot of research @ projectorcentral on the right PJ for my needs.
The right throw distances for the screen size and picked the PJ on the specs of lens zoom increasing the range of screen sizes I could choose from and image scaling in the PJ so I went with the largest screen I could pull off in the room.
The home plans were choosen with many things in mind including the theater room (downstairs and away from the girls bedrooms) for late night viewing. I wired the room during contruction so that helped alot, but didn't plan on CIH until the room was done so the HDMI jack in the ceiling is in front of the PJ.
Kinda fell into CIH by accident on the AVS and never looked back (got a wealth of knowledge from some over there)
All I can say is do ALOT of research BEFORE going ahead with this type of project. One more tip is buy the screen last, project on the wall until you find a size that works for you.
Hope this helps.

on none scope movies the screen has black bars on the side, but scope movies 2.35 and up the screen is full and is bigger than 1.78 movies.
I'll try to find a link to explain this better.

I think you mean front-projection. Rear-projectors are self-contained units, like mine:



-Akai/Samsung PT4298HD/HCM4216W 42-inch 1080i RPTV, 7" CRTs, DVE-calibrated, lenses focused, precision converged, *not* grayscale calibrated yet.
-Toshiba HD-A2 HD DVD player.
-Wii
-SNES
-Samsung SIR-T160 DirecTV receiver (for OTA only)
-Rabbit ears
-Yamaha 5.1 A/V receiver (DTS, AC-3, PLII) and speakers
-Pioneer LaserDisc player in the closet.
-Toshiba DVD recorder in the trunk (I plan to use it for making copies of my LDs).

As crappy as the above pic is (taken on a JVC MiniDV camcorder) the pics of the actual picture on the tv are even worse, so I won't bother posting them.

Oh what the heck.





Yikes. Looks way, way better in person.

Taken on my cell phone because when I dug out the digital camera the battery was dead. More to come.
