I asked but did not get much of a reply on here and that is o.k. so I used the search function. After days of research I am going with the Optomo ML500. Ebay motorized 100" screen and an Onkyo HT-s3500 5.1 system. I hope to be in my house within a month and hope to have the basement setup to enjoy some movie nights with the kids and wife. I hope to watch some NCAA basketball as well.
About $850 and I will also put my 50" plasma there as well. Going with a 55" LCD in the upstairs living room.
