I am planing on buying my entire home theater setup tonight. This will be a projector setup for gaming, movies, and possibly regular jack in the wall cable. Im going to be buying this Optoma HD65 but as I was painting my walls this week, I realized my walls are in terrible condition and not fit for a nice looking view. So Ive decided a need a screen, good choice right?
SO I wanna make sure Im buying the right stuff.
Optoma HD65 projectorhttp://www.consignia.ca/product/1929...I_1093674.html
92" screens, they have 2 for sale, one open box panoview 92", one grandview new 92", one $50 more expensive than the other.http://www.consignia.ca/product/1929...X_1101201.htmlhttp://www.consignia.ca/product/1929...n_1181993.html
Is one better than the other?? The room will be completely black
Now Ive never had a projector before, so I dont know if Im doing the math or setup right here. My room is 12 X 10 X 9' high. Im going to be shining from one end of the 12' room to the other, with the projector mounted up high on a DIY shelf perhaps? (how close to the ceiling should it be??) and the screen mounted as high to the ceiling as possible on the other side of the room. using this calulcatorhttp://www.projectorcentral.com/Opto...calculator.htm
I put the throw @ 11', and with a TINY bit of zoom, I get 92" diagonal
I just need to know if they will work together and what to go with here.
Any advice on the setup of the projector and its placement Id appreciate, right now Im in the mindset to build a shelf for it and my xbox up high on the wall..... appreciate any help
