I must start out by saying that these are the most helpful forums I have come across regarding projectors. That being said I am still so unbelievably lost. I am brand spanking new to the projector world and I have some noob type questions about projector setup.
I am in the market for a decent 3d projector for movies and gaming. I have already chosen on the Optoma HD33 - so I don't need any other suggestions in that area.
What I need to know is what will I need to purchase to get up and running? This is a Christmas gift to myself (ha!) so I will want to be able to plug in and play straight out the box. Ideally I will want my whole family to sit down and watch a Christmas movie together.
Thus far I have bought:
1. Mediabridge Ultra Series - High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet - (6 Feet) - Category Certified - Supports 3D & Audio Return Channel
(This is to hook up 3d Blu Ray Player) - is this cord correct? I know the HD33 takes 1.4a - is this the same?
I realized this projector does not come with speakers - what suggestions do you all have to set this up? Soundbar? I cant really go over $200.
I then stumbled upon receivers that I may need for setup IS this necessary? What benefits will this give me?
I am starting to get overwhelmed - even the most basic guidance will be very welcome. I feel as though I have stepped out of my depth on this one!
