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.

http://www.projectorreviews.com/epso...jector-review/

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.

I got Epson to replace the projector. Much better picture now.

However, I am still looking at the sound out issue. I am a bit confused since there seems to be 2 types of extractor boxes - one type is AUDIO extractor (typically 1080p) the othertype is ARC extractor (4k).

I am looking to get audio out from my Firetv 2ng generation box and to be able to control the audio level from the remote of the firetv. Which type should I buy?

Red face QualGear QG-PM-002-WHT-L Projector Mount - $30

Install went fine.

It's installed on the ceiling (7ft from floor) behind couch about 16ft. from projection surface. Mount is mostly retracted to a 22inch length. It seems adequately sturdy and we have never seen any image shaking or vibrations. However, I guess it should be noted that this is a single-level residence (no walking on floor above projector).

I was just barely able to lift projector into place and hook on shaft by myself. Projector "balances" on mount nicely and then you just tighten the various final screws. You can make fine adjustments, but there are no actual "fine adjustment" knobs ... but it's not like you need them with the 8350. I just hold projector perfectly level, lens parallel to screen, and tighten all the screws down (fairly permanently).

Playing around with screen sizes, height, or position is easy with 8350 (nice lens and lens-shift), and no further adjustment of mount is required while messing-around with those things.

Since install, there has been no movement or drift requiring re-adjustment of mount. We like it.

On the back counter was fine, but I'm happy to finally have it on the ceiling.

1. Excellent. That explains a lot ... didn't make sense that the "picture was bad" OoB.

2. I tried to help since I just bought a ViewHD device, but this IS a projector thread. A audio thread might be better?

3. That's a good question about the audio control. I control my Zone-2 Audio with a wall control near porch door. I think someone else will have to help you. I don't really understand your setup (using a mixer?) or your reluctance to get a HDMI AVR (especially in this day and age).
