1. I guess I should also mention that I use Preset #1 Dusk about 90% of the time (even at Night and during the day with blinds closed). My multi-use room is not very light-controlled. IMO, the 8350 is a torcher.

2. I have an idea. I'll post later.

I'm not sure what that is.

I just know that HDMI capable AVRs have been around for a while now, they are cheap, and IIRC ... the only way to get things like Multi-Channel PCM and Lip-Sync.

I use a ViewHD VHD-H2HSAs to extract analog stereo from my AppleTV-4 for Zone-2 audio.

Would the current HC3700/TW6700 be a noticable upgrade from TW3200/HC8350?

How much better is the black level and native contrast, for instance?

Mounting 8350 on ceiling ... finally.

For the past 6 years, we have had our 8350 sitting on the counter in the back of our large Multi-Use room.

Well, I just installed a new Minka-Aire ceiling fan with a 6-inch shorter down-rod in our Living Room. It's finally now possible to ceiling mount our projector. I even have wife-approval so I ordered a $30 QualGear QG-PM-002-WHT-L from Amazon.

Wish me luck.

Good question, but the 3700 looks nice.

I'm not qualified to say how it compares to 8350, but the review and/or blog-posts do talk toward it. Interesting people are still talking about 8350 (it certainly made an impression on the scene).

I'm sold on Epson 3-LCD technology and their nice main-lens also. Yeah, my next projector would have to be as good or better than my 8350. But since ours still works perfectly, it's better if I don't look at new projectors reviews or epson.com right now.

We still mostly use the plasma during the day. But just about every day at dusk ... the Epson 8350 comes on.
