Almost time to hit the rack....but I'll comment on those questions real quick.
Thanks for the kind words. If you're on the fence (as I believe joerod said), get off. The 805 will do what it's advertised to do, and do it well.
How much room for convection cooling? The obvious answer is as much as you can give it. Normally I'd say a minimum of 2 inches on top, but in the case of the 805, I'm gonna say 3 inches minimum. This thing will probably reduce my heating bill this winter........
warehouse, I don't think the DVI adapters will cause you problems, as long as they are of a good quality. (Some of those are suspect and can cause all sorts of little issues and is very difficult to track down (diagnose). You will have to run a separate audio cable however, but you probably already knew that.
You mentioned a component cable too. If you are going to upconvert your component to HDMI (as you said "have the receiver do the video switching") and feed the projector with the HDMI2DVI cable, the most you're going to get is 720p from that component source. We've already been over this. If you want to get 1080i or 1080p out of your component connected source, you'll have to go to the projector with the component cable also. This will negate the receiver doing the video switching. Hope that helps.
