Thanks for replying. I have been reading and searching this and some other sites for at least a month now. I have been jumping from the receiver section to the speaker, projector, screen and other forums on a daily basis. I have some questions and hope to get some helpful answers.
What do you guys think of the height. If I mount it as close to the ceiling as possible, let's say about 8" ( if that's practical and I would also have to find a mount that meets the specification ) , how high will the bottom of the screen be from the floor? Assuming that I am using a 110" screen, I am trying to figure out if it's not too low. How low is too low?.
I really like to use a 120" screen or whatever the optimum size allowed is. 113" is the width of the recessed part of the wall, think I can squeeze something like a 116" (diagonally) in there, if the calculator gods allow. Shouldn't using the opposite wall (flat) be more suitable? Just mount the projector in the recessed part at the top and use the bottom for equipment. Place the seats in front of the equipment rack, that should slow down the kids some.
For an 8' ceiling, is it better to shelf/wall mount or ceiling mount? Do you get better placement/tweaking with one or the other?
Any recommendations for a mount, best suited for this kind of setup?
I am planning to order a Jamestown screen with the HC4000. Are any of you guys using a Jamestown with their pj? What do you think of the screen and do you have a white or a grey one.
This room is a dedicated media room, no windows and I am planning to install a light control system. I will be watching sports/tv, gaming and watching movies most of the time. For watching sports or gaming, I would like to have some sort of light on (will be controlled). I was thinking of getting a screen with 1.1 or 1.0 gain. I am not sure if that would be the right screen type for this situation. What do you guys think? Or should I get a grey screen instead?
