I kave an Optoma HD20 in my Theater, I
ve Had it for a couple of years but have used it mainly for Movies
I'm thinking about using it more to watch televison, how many of you use your
PJ's for daily TV Watching versus movie night only?

I use mine for everything. I do 1000-2000 hours a year depending on usage. It uses the bulb more and more hours == more heat == shorter calendar life for your projector. I don't watch Standard def anything on it.

Yup, movies and TV. In fact a lot of Sundays my PJ is on for 10 to 12 hours. HD TV is great on my PJ. You got it so use it.

Mine is in my basement. I use it for sports and movies only. I do most of my "regular" tv watching in my 55" set in my family room

Same here. The 8350 is for everything. Everyday watching of TV, movies, PS3 games. I'm using the hell out of it and loving every minute of it. smile.gif

all the time for games, movies, tv... not a fan of buying something and not maxing it's potential.
