100 hours or so is about right. There is some noticeable improvement thereafter. I recommend playing straight using a tuner (TV or radio) so you don't wear out any valuable moving parts. Play at a...

As said, you really should contact a structural engineer. There may be structural issues with moving the pole from where it is, even if you maintain the same span distances. It may cost you $300 or...

Scott, I thought it preferable to have some lights on (maybe not with a projector...?) during movie watching. The idea of remote lighting ability seems pretty cool (as long as it's not too much...
