I'm about to pull the trigger on buying a hw50es, and I'd like for someone to let me know if:
1). There are any common issues I should be aware of
2). If the projector will work well in my space
I have a non dedicated room that's 37' long by 17' wide and 9' ceilings. The screen will be ceiling mounted on the 17' wide wall.
I have a surround system, so audio is not a concern.
The walls in the room.will be flat dark grey and I have white ceilings (not willing to go bat cave due to aesthetics). Have 1 egressed window that will have blackout shades.
All wiring has been done. 35' HDMI from projector mount location in ceiling to A/V rack. HDMI was bought from local A/V shop to avoid any long distance issues (usually buy mono price, but didn't want to tear out drywall if HDMI didn't work). 2 cat6 cables along same run. Projector mount location around 15' from the screen. Electric plug in ceiling.
For the screen, I'm planning to buy either a 110" or 120" electric tab tensioned screen (cheap, hopefully) that will drop in front of a wall mounted plasma. I want this setup so I'm.not burning my lamp watching TV just killing time. Any suggestions for a cheap good screen (<750)?
Mostly watch tv (sports/movies/shows) and blu-rays. Most of the time will be in complete darkness, but may watch football games with a little backroom light.
Any other information needed?
