I am verry patiently awaiting an Epson 8350 shipment from a black friday deal I pulled the trigger on. Brand new to projectors in my OWN home
, but my dad's been in this game for a while.
The audio is wired up and my media closet is pretty much buttoned up. The power cord and HDMI's are hanging where my projector "theoretically' should be mounted. The mount will be here tomorrow, and I'm hoping the finally within a couple of days the 8350!
I ran 2 HDMI's 1 Blue Jean 24' and a cheapy $10 25' HDMI as an experiment to see if there is a difference in picture quality.
I have a lighter marble floor and lighter walls so I decided to go 2 coats Kilz 2 Primer and 2 coats SilverScreen. My wall wasn't perfect before the primer so I mud and sanded ever so slightly the flaws. I am impressed with how the painted wall came out, although concerned it might be too grey. I might just be accustomed to the old "whiter wall" or my dad's setup and older projector where he needs a white wall.
The image will hopefully be projected at 149" 16:9. I'm a bit concerned as I have a heat duct hanging down. The projector will sit almost 20' back so hopefully this will not be an issue with line of sight and my mount...hopefully.
I have a basic Win7 HTPC and a PS3 I will be hooking up to this so nothing crazy. I bought it for movies mainly.
