Hey guys. I posted this in the theater/media room board, but don't think that I'll get responses there. Checking to see what you think...
I'm purchasing a new home that I'll finally be able to make my long desired media/theater room a part of. I've already started trying to line things up so that I can get to work right away.
I plan on installing a television first for most TV shows and video games, and it may take a little while longer for the projector and screen to come in since I may want to take a break financially (purchasing a new home along with its requirements, a media room sound system, big screen 4K (doubt that I'm putting up the $ for an OLED), and comfy chairs is a killer financially). When I DO get the screen/projector, I plan on having it on the SAME wall as the TV. Thus, the only way that I believe that I can do it is to have a motorized screen be able to drop from the ceiling. That being said, I just had a few quick questions..
#1) Is something like this ok in terms of quality and performance for a motorized screen:
#2) Are there more types of these systems, and would you have any examples?
#3) I'm guessing you'd have to attache a decent beam of wood or other material to the wall above your screen somehow before attaching this device.
#4) Since the home is being built from the ground up, would you tell them to leave holes in the ceiling for a projector that'd eventually be installed, or would it be easy enough to let them make a full ceiling and then create the necessary space up there myself when it's time?
#4) What exactly is a "soffit"?
I truly appreciate any information that can be provided, even OUTSIDE of the few questions that I've asked.
This is another guy who did something similar to what I'm describing. This looks absolutely awesome, but how long do you think it'd last if you even consider to be safe in the first place? If it was seen as okay, I might try to use this method myself
