I am not yet decided on a projector nec lt150z or sanyo XW15.
I am planning to project on an 80"x60" screen. Those 2 projectors are between 800 - 1000 lumen. The projector will be about 14feet away from the screen.

Beging new to Home Theater and projector, I am a bit lost here: Da-Lite, steward etc. less than 1 or greater than 1 grain.
I would imaging that, due to the "low" power of those projectors, I would need a greater than 1 screen.

My second problem is the mounting. This screen will be mounted in front of a fire place (which is never used). I want to be able to remove completely the screen and can not attach it either to the back wall (fireplace extrudes), nor attached to the ceiling (too high).

I would appreciate any feedbacks related to those problems.

Thanks a lot,


PS: There is some ambient light getting into the room. The projector will most of the time used at night.
