After trying several different cables, I ended up with Monoprices's Redmere cables. They are high speed cables that are rated to handle 1080p, 3D, and 4K. They worked fine for the first few days, and will occasionally work currently with the PS3, usually when I unplug it, use it in another room, then reattach it to the cable feeding the projector.

The cable plays 1080p fine, and works flawlessly with my Panasonic tv.

Any idea if this mount will be appropriate for a 2030?

Hey all, as above, I'm wondering if this can be used with a 2030..

It certainly looks like it would fit the bill - I'll be hanging it from an 8 foot ceiling and it would be nice to have the extra versatility as I don't intend to use keystone correction so need it at an exact height.

Depends on the screen size, but that looks about right: 3 to 5 inches

Right ... the lens should be between 3 to 5 inches below the top edge of the screen. You might be able to adjust the physical pitch of the PJ mount to move the image up or down +/- 0.5 inches without getting into keystone issues. Still, you want to get it as close as possible. This is a case where you probably want to mount the PJ first, line the image up on the wall, then line the screen up to the image. Or, an adjustable drop electric screen might make life a bit easier.

Yep ... I can see where it might become a "navigational hazard" for taller folks. I suppose it depends a bit on your comfort vs. screen height threshold.

EPSON does have a good throw vs. size vs height calculator (flash based) at their website.

For the record: On my ceiling install with ~99" diagonal image ... the center of the lens is ~18.5" from the ceiling (the top of the PJ case is ~21.5" from the ceiling.) The top edge of my screen (image) is ~13.5" from the ceiling; and since I was a bit "off" with the screen alignment, I had to pitch the PJ down to make up for about 0.25 to 0.5 inches of overshoot. (... or I didn't get the pitch screws tightened down enough initially and it slipped upward.)

I haven't taken the time to "perfect" the alignment since, apparently, I'm still in an endless loop trying to decide on a permanent screen solution.
