I know in my area there is a pretty big outfit called Techteriors http://www.techteriors.com/
Not sure if they came up on your list, but give them a shout, they have numerous trucks all over the place, and seem pretty technically adept...
Thanks for the info.
Yes, I've been there.
I had a projector ceiling mount installed by them and they charged me labor for a guy to drive from a long ways away to come and install it.
I hadn't been told that before hand -- and the store is only a few miles away from my house. The installer also asked my carpenter (who came over to help) to go get more parts.
I wasn't excited by that service.
They eventually adjusted my bill, but I did get the feeling they could/would promise anything and then deliver a pre-determined product.
They weren't very helpful when I was discussing ISCO/CineSlide or non-Stewart screens +/- masking systems.
The experience might be different with their remote/integration stuff.
I have gotten Control 4 ads from them.
They are in the mix.
A neighbor has a very high end Crestron system from an installer in Hartland.
I have to find out that name.
I don't think I need something that involved or costly, but it sounds like a great install place.Other places I've used
- TechTerriors - projector mount install
- Flanners - Middle Atlantic rack install / eval for screen, etc. but did myself
- Full Compass (near Madison) - no install, but advice on rack stuffPending
- HT seats (just mailed a check to Roman S. (rsh @ AVS) - previously looked at Colders
- calibration - Craig Rounds from Chicago
- a friends TV calibration - Tony (SOWK @ AVS)
