Just like every other newbie, when I was buying my setup I obsessed over every small detail. For the screen, I did countless measurements. A 106" screen is 92" wide? Yeah np.

Got it delivered last night. Totally forgot that the case is obviously a LOT wider than the screen, esp for my motorized one. It was 112" wide. Literally just barely fit. (Which I think is awesome since I can't physically upgrade, but the wife was seriously perturbed).

Pics. First shot is with the 50" plasma so you can see difference, second shot is with it all the way lowered. (Using plasma for daytime viewing, pj is just for nighttime movies)
