OK now, I really want 3d but love my 8350, so i want a 5010 what do u all think? also i tried the new ONKYO 616,515 and both wont work with my 8350. the display would lokk good for a sec then bounce around and distort, almost like a VHS tape that needs tracking. SO dont know what reciever to get either, my budget for reciever is about 700 tops and projector wise 2700. the screen needs to be re stretched lol. thanks for all the help

You may have something else going on if the new Onkyos won't work since they use standard HDMI v1.4A connections. I have an Onkyo 709 and it works flawlessly. I'd try a different HDMI cable and see if that is the culprit.

As for all your 5010 questions, I don't know. Might want to find a 5010 forum and ask them.

Seriously, there's a thread dedicated to the 5010 model here:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1377321

If you're asking questions about the 5010, you should be asking them there, not asking them here and then wondering why no one responded. People here aren't not responding because they're rude, they're not responding because they own the 8350, not the 5010, and most likely have little to no personal experience with the 5010.

I finally got sick of the dust blobs... thus is my story of warning... do not blow compressed air in a hot projector lol... I'm sure most of you would have known that already... Flames!...! lots of flames and burnt polarizer... and I'm missing an eyelash or two. HAHAH no worries I was going for a darwin award... maybe next year.

Waited for the projector to cool and then went to again. It's easy to get into the projector. I was successful in blowing out the largest of my dust blobs (red and some green). I'm confident with a cold projector that this could be a safe and non-damaging clean out. I'm going to in a few weeks dismantle it completely remove the mother board and do some cleaning around the polarizer/lcd area. I will post a tutorial at that point for basic cleaning. So my eyelash loss can be your gain

Looking forward to the video nineset! Perhaps an eyelash curler would help to hide the loss of those 'lashes.

Curious, what causes dust blobs to appear? Does dust settle on the bulb & burn-in, on the lens, or something else?

Hey guys,

I am in the process for finishing my basement and will be placing a projector in the family room portion of a 15' x 30' open room. I am in the final stages of running my electrical and trying to determine a location for power for the projector.

Here are the key considerations:

Screen size: 106 inches
Ceiling height: 7' 9"
Top of screen: 7.5" from ceiling
Bottom of screen: 33.5" from floor
Left edge of screen: 36" from wall
Planned throw: 13'

I am trying to figure out the best location to ceiling mount the projector. The thing that is the biggest factor is my want for gaming with the Kinect. Obviously I would like to game with out casting shadows. I assume I will need to use some vertical lens shift due to placement of my screen, which may limit the amount of horizontal shift. Any suggestions on placement, or should I just say screw it and mount it dead center.

Thanks Guys.

Duke,

You need to mount the Top edge of the Screen almost against the Edge of the Ceiling, and place the Pj as far forward as possible and still get the image size you want (...or less would be better...) That would be at 11' from the Screen.

And absolutely try to center the lens on the screen. The Pj can / should be mounted so that the Bottom (top when inverted) is about 6" off the ceiling. Use a dedicated Mounting system such as the Chief RPA168 and a Peerless ACC570 Round Ceiling Plate
(get both through Projector People Ext 2002 -Kirk) You'll connect the Chief & Peerless units with a NPT 1.5" dia. x 2" Threaded Steel Pipe Nipple (Home Depot)

Do all of that and you'll be able to stand about 8' from the Screen without casting a shadow.....closer if your kids are munckin sized. Or you...either way.

To quote James T. Kirk;
"I'm laughing at the superior intellect"

MississippiMan,

Thanks for the advice. Basically that 7.5inch from top of ceiling accounts for screen housing. I am planning on going with a VApex standard electric screen.

I am 5'8" so that could be considered munchin size...lol. I was just thinking that for general viewing, it might be a more pleasant experience if the PJ was mounted behind seating. I am open to anything though. I know for the screen size I have planned 10'4" is the closest i can go for throw distance.

I just want to allow myself wiggle room for an upgrade down the line. In the future I intend to have a tv mounted on the projector wall an the screen will be offset enough from the wall to conceal the tv when the projector is in use.

Thanks again.

Since I am buying the 8350 myself, might I inquire what types of HDMI cables you are using? I have gone blind reading all the different reviews but figured I would ask people here with the same product...

Also, if anyone is a Best Buy Silver Rewards Zone Member, they offer a $100 coupon on any home theater purchases. Here is the catch, a Geek Squad member will come to your home and give you a free home theater assessment and gives you the coupon then and there. I spoke to the Store Manager and told him, I already know what I want and don't want to waste a Geek Squads time to come out here to just give me the coupon. He said no problem and when I come in to ask for him and he will do the $100 discount.

So it brings this down to $1199....not too shabby

Make it a Great Day,

All my cables are from Monoprice.com... Don't spend any more than $10 for a cable. Any cables that cost more are a ripoff.

Yep, I have a 25ft HDMI from Monoprice, it's also "in-wall" rated and is almost too thick of a cable to make bends easily. Very good quality for a very low price.

My only complaint so far is that the text does not seem as sharp as my old 720p DLP projector. Keep playing with the focus but it's just a little soft when I view text.

Didn't find the Electronics Expo on Amazon, but both Projector People and Visual Apex have it for $1099 over Memorial Day weekend, free ship and no tax.

Going to order mine today from PP. This will be my first theater setup. Going with the Elite Sable 110" screen off Amazon for $279, prime shipping.

Looking forward to trying this out. I already had three LED TV's and wanted to try something different.

This thread has been very helpful.

Strange that 720p would be sharper than 1080p. Is that because the 720p is DLP and the 1080p is LCD?

I think this is just part of the DLP vs LCD debate. My DLP was always tack sharp but the Epson, while very good, is not quite as sharp when viewing text from my HTPC. I guess it is one of the trade offs I made not to hear the DLP color wheel noise, the Epson is nearly silent, the air coming out of my A/C vent makes more noise.

Also, the Epson does not heat up my home theater nearly as much as my old HC1500, another benefit I noticed after using the projector for about 25 hours now.

I thought I would share my install of my 8350 and Valpex 92 motorized tab setup.

I built a custom enclosure with 4 fans, two pushing fresh air in, and two suck air out.

Also I built a custom enclosure for the screen.

It has a linear actuator which lowers the door and at the same time turns on the 4 fans, this action is actuated by a set of relays, and put into action by Epsons 12v trigger.

Also the screen lowers when the door of the cabinet begins to open.

All this happens with a push of one button on my remote.

And of course all of this is reversed with one push of a button.

I also built a custom coffered ceiling to disguise any hint of a home theater in our family room.

I just have to paint it all to match.

In the center of the ceiling is a location where a Canvas Mural will go, accented by the LED lighting, which will be covered with Cove moulding, allowing just a hint of light that will accent the mural, but even now , does not interfere with the screen.

Here's the link to the video, goes to show with the knowledge and skill, the need to hire these overpriced home theater specialist, just isn't needed.

Going to have to get back on the phone with Epson but just wanted to post my experiences as a cautionary tale for those considering this projector.

I can see you have put a whole lot of work into your setup. Nice job.

No problems with mine. You need to remember, this is one of the most popular projects being sold today, for every one person that posts they have a problem, there is probably a thousand owners that have seen no problems and are totally oblivious to what you are reading on this forum.

you hit the nail on the head. Probably millions of these things sold and to have a handful problems, if they do exist is a great record.

My unit has operated flawlessly since it when I to operation, I have a little over 200 hours and never saw one issue.

I just think some people are nit picky , after all you are only spending 1000.00, what do you want, a 50,000.00 projector.

Nothing wrong with this projector, in fact we are gonna buy a second for our downstairs Family Room.

I built a custom enclosure with 4 fans, two pushing fresh air in, and two suck air out.

I like the idea. How loud are the fans compared to the fan in the 8350? What fan did you choose?

It has a linear actuator which lowers the door and at the same time turns on the 4 fans, this action is actuated by a set of relays, and put into action by Epsons 12v trigger.

I would add a thermal sensor to the fans' control logic to ensure that they will keep moving air when the door is closed.

Cool job!
