Heh, yeah, I noticed. Does avs just not allow links to google photos or what?

Do I see from your profile image that you mounted one of your projectors backwards pointing at a mirror to get more throw distance? That's a pretty sweet idea...

Yes, my room is only 10' deep (and 12.5' wide not counting the entrance/equipment closet on the left wall) so I use a quality first surface mirror to extend the throw distance.

Interesting that you also are using your wide wall for the screen wall. Seems most people use the narrow wall for the screen wall. I thought about using my room the more traditional way as well, but mounting the screen over the window seemed like it was going to be a real PIA, and I don't think the extra 3 feet was enough to allow me to do two rows of seating anyways, so I did it the unconventional way as well!

Just stopped in to say Hello.

Figured I would post in this section. Looks like I will be moving to the Portland area in about 6 months after being away from the PNW for 5 years and Oregon for 10 years. Maybe can meet up with some other home theater enthusiasts sometime once I am in the area. Hopefully won't be without a home theater for too long with the move and all

Thanks.

I probably won't be out there until February sometime so, I will probably miss the fall ones if you do some. When I am out there I would totally be game to go to one or even host one sometime after I get a theater setup at my next place.
