Hi guys. Been lurking a bit for a couple weeks now. I reserved my Xbox One Day One Edition immediately after announcement and as I looked for a solution to connect it to I finally settled on a projector. So I have been snooping ways of dealing with the issue of having the console ~10' and about 25' of cord away. I have been real interested in how others have done it with the 360 along with researching the differences with the new system and dealing with those.
Now I am well aware my setup will not go as planned, so until I get everything together, this is just a starting point.
I believe I have settled on a Viewsonic PJD7820HD, which I will mount on the wall directly across from the wall I project to. It will be against the ceiling (8'), but on a shelf. I am in an apartment and I am not certain the manager would appreciate me scarring his ceilings. My screen will be against the wall ~10' away(walls are 11'7" apart) and I will project ~80"X45" screen with the top of it running along my ceiling. That leaves plenty of room for a piece of furniture I have to go under it that is 30" high. (resembles a triple dresser, but it isn't)
Now, as usual, there are a ton of things that can go wrong here and I am trying to anticipate them as much as possible. The projector is backordered and it could be awhile before I get the money altogether and actually receive it to start my nightmare. Couple of things I have concern over;
a.) If my calculations are correct a 6' person can be no further than 4' from the back wall before their melon will get in the way of the projector while playing a Kinect game. Does anyone know anything I can do to give more room and is this correct?
b.) will it be difficult to mount the kinect to a flat wooden surface? Will I be able to get a 25' USB3.0 extension, will it require a repeater, and will lag become a problem?
Any other possible issues that may spring up are welcome as well. Thanks ahead of time for any responses.
