Hey Jim,

I was thinking about your situation as far as stabilizing the heat... have you thought about a hush-box/shroud for the PJ, and venting (via ducting) just the air from the PJ surround to...

Hey Negative design,

Be aware with those swamp coolers, they need lots of available air exchange to work, otherwise they can render your room, well, rather swampy! To put it simply, The cooling...

I'm lucky enough to live and work in Langley, practically in Curt's backyard (and he has been nothing short of instrumental in getting me set up in HT). I'm currently running a Barco...

Gary,

The "tear" you are describing; Does it look like the upper left edge is "hooked" to the right? If so, you need to toggle the SYNC from slow to fast, or vice-versa. That should take care of...

Gary,

The Barco Graphics should be able to handle the sync rate.

Are you running the desktop for windows at 1440x960@48Hz or 72Hz? The reason I ask, is it sounds like one of the programs is...

Chip, LOL!!! :D

Don't forget that you CAN have a high-end RP set-up as an option if you have the extra room for the PJ firing from somewhere behind the screen.

I went from a Toshiba RPTV to an...

Hi Phil,

The screen frame was constructed using 3/4" extruded square aluminum tubing (96x54"), and it was braced at 32" intervals using vertically oriented tubes. I did not cross brace for the...
