Thanks muncey,

Without stating it in my first post, that's been my top contender for a while.

The rainbow issue isn't something I've determined yet. I'll have to view some setups before making the purchase.

What are my limitations with lens shifts? I guess I don't understand the whole thing... Would I gain anything by having 768 vs. 720? What does that calculate to with my distance/mounting height/screen size? I've played around with some of the screen calculators but don't know that I'm looking at things the right way.

Brian

The IN76 doesn't have lens shift, either. It does have some offset though. Have you read:

The 768 will let you show WXGA or XGA without cropping.

What is the minimum ceiling height for the hd72? I also have a ceiling that is a little bit taller than 8'.

Not true with a 92" screen and 8' ceilings - these projectors will work great for you. The big thing is not wanting to calibrate, which makes the IN76 the best choice with it's accurate factory calibration.

You're fine for a screen size 106" or less.

Cool.

The calibration thing is more about sticking $500 into a $1500 investment. I'm having a hard time with that idea, whereas my current 32" HD-CRT is completely dialed in with DVE. Don't get me wrong - I totally appreciate a properly calibrated display. I wouldn't consider owning anything without my own "calibration", it's trying to justify the professional job if it's unnecessary by simply buying a different projector that is already "factory set", so to speak... Part of it is not completely understanding what a pro cal offers. What does it tweak that I can't do on my own?

Uatatoka - about where would a HD72 or the Mits put my image - too high or too low?

Thanks.

I'm aiming for 120" - my screen is 134". Am I dead in the water?
