Not only that I am on the phone right now waiting in line for an operator. It is always the case that all their representatives are assisitng other customers and they are "Experiencing higher than normal volume" I got em on speaker phone, I can let it run all day.

If they really wanted to give you the rebate... It would be an instant rebate from the authorized dealer.

The check was mailed out in Feb for $550. Now I have to go back in quicken and see if we got it. However my wife's computer crashed at the office and we lost some of the quicken. Panasonic is checking to see if it was cashed as well as I.

Yep that did it. Thanks. I was looking at that the joystick when I first opened the PJ, probably 6 months ago and I just forgot all about it. You can move the picture all over the wall with the joystick. Awesome. I am going to get the room cleaned up today and get working on getting the screen installed. After the carpet gets installed I am on my way. Still lots to do.

I will add, just shooting on the black wall, the picture looks nice. Cannot wait to see it on the screen. I am like a little kid, I feel like I am 12 and it is a week before Christmas.

My dad's is on a mount and due to joist location, duct work, etc, the lens is probably 18", maybe more, to the right of the center of the screen.

I have an issue with his picture that I never had with mine, and I'm guessing it's related to the lens location. It's almost a horizontal keystone effect, however, the top of the image is relatively level, as are the sides. The problem is really only on the bottom. A somewhat exaggerated depiction of the issue is attached. Let me know if you have any ideas. If I need to shelf mount it so it can be centered, that is possible.


This is like an MMAT question.


easy fix

Looking at the screen and standing behind the ceiling mounted projector make the following changes:
tilt the projector to the right
then rotate the projector on the mount to the right a bit.


You are tilted left and rotated left currently.

I don't know what or who MMAT is, but I'm going to go ahead and be offended, just in case. Thanks for the response, and I'll give it another look. Although it seems if it were titled one way, the side image lines wouldn't be so plumb.
