So, I have one of these on the way, as well as a VaPex 120" 1.1 matte white electric screen. This is my first projector, so I was wondering if I can get some assistance in putting this all together. My present setup is as follows : 54" Panasonic G10, receiver HDMI 1.3 Onkyo TX-SR605, PS3 SLIM, Mac Mini, Xbox 360, 7.1 surround.
I have yet to order a mount, because I wanted to assemble everything together initially and gather some more facts.
The room everything is in is my living room, it is 16 feet deep, 8 feet high, and twelve feet wide. I'm thinking that the screen will go above the TV on the ceiling, with the TV 18' from the wall. Will I need special screws to secure the screen to the ceiling, aside from the screws that will be included in the package, due to the weight of the screen. I don't even have a power drill.
Coderman, thank you for the calculator, it's a big help and I'm putting it to use. From the numbers I've put in 13' is the closest I can have the projector, and the lens offset is 13".
I'm going to place the projector onto my coffee table which is 17" off the ground. What are the benefits of the a shelf mount vs. ceiling mount aside from clutter, aesthetics?
Is there any recommended 2D and 3D settings? The glasses are DLP Link/IR glasses, is that correct? I know that one pair comes with the projector, but no where have I seen any extras offered. Any reccomendations on DLP glasses?
