My viewing room is slightly unique. I have very high vaulted ceilings and this H-type structure between my dining area and the TV room. Currently my projector is table mounted, but our 7 month old is becoming mobile and I will be getting the HD1000U in a few weeks and want to ceiling mount it. The first thing I thought of was simply hanging it from the bar on the H by constructing a "box" around the bar. I don't trust just putting it into the board of the H itself as it seems very thin. That would be like so:
This was all fine and good until I researched the offset for the projector, which would place the image less than 2 feet off the ground, which would unfortunately clip into my entertainment center that contains all my HT components. So I thought about it and thought that (please someone tell me if I am wrong here) that if I mounted it upside down, ie on top of the H-bar, and used the Mirrored inverse (since the projector would be right-side up but needing to project down instead of up, that it might work better because it would throw the image about where I needed it to. That would be like this:
Finally, I thought that if I were going to put it on top of the H, I might as well just put a platform in on the top and "build up" and hang the projector from a piece of board that would be like a ceiling, that way I didn't have to mess with any weird inversing or whatever. I also figure that if I do it this way, I can get it near exactly where I want it heigh-wise on the wall. That would look like this:
Please let me know what you think my best option is. I am really sold on this projector and can't wait to get it, I just want to get everything ready for it so I can just set it up when it gets here.
Also, what is a good hardware-type item to use that will pin cable to a wall? I can't exactly run thru the wall with the way the H is set up, so I am going to run behind, up and over. Any suggestions on things to use to do this would be great too.
I really appreciate all of your guys help and input on this. Thanks!
