My usual answer as it has worked for me. I used the Ralph Lauren suade paint. It can be a bit lighter but with the texture it's not very reflective if at all.

Is your projector near a heat source such as a vent? If the heat comes on and blows any heated air towards the projector it will prevent proper cooling and it will shut down. I had to move mine due...

For my theater, I used the Ralph Lauren suede. It is lighter than a typical theater paint and the suede texture is pretty good at NOT reflecting light. While it's one of my man caves, it has a high...

Is it 1" square or round or flat stock? I would think a hacksaw would work on any of them unless I'm missing something here.

You should be able to find a rating for weight on the drywall anchor. I would get the metal type that mushroom big time. It looks like there are two screw holes in the mount, so a couple rated at 15...

Wow. I've worked at death and destruction most of my adult life. To disconnect and enjoy some childish, silly movies (sci-fi or not) is not something I'll be ashamed of. :cool:

I would question having the sofa so far back. 65" TV from 18 ft will not be, IMO, as good of an experience as for say 9-10 ft. Moving up will give room for rear speakers in a 7.1 system. If the...

If ANH would be made today it would be a lot darker without as much regard for a child oriented audience. I think a good analogy would be the difference between Roger Moore's 007 and Daniel...

I didn't notice any change in scope. I'm not sure what you mean by taller. It took up the whole IMAX screen.

Okay, I saw it and now I've breezed through this thread. I liked the movie and agree that it's pretty much follows ANH. I liked the new characters, especially Rey. I feel they could have shown her...

Went to it yesterday and saw it at an IMAX. I fall into the "like it" camp. A couple of holes that could have been filled better, but there are also short glimpses that give clues that those short...

Load bearing or not, do not leave the studs flopping. Frame a box from the cutout. As neurorad said, you don't need to frame the box out to the next studs. Just attach the box to cut studs.

My opinion is that 1/2" thick wood will hold the screw, but golfster suggestion would give you insurance. Make it long enough to secure behind the wood and sized to hold the weight of the tv.

I'm not sure how your comment adds to the discussion. Maybe a shot at me or maybe at the OP. Either way it's unnecessary, IMO.

Watched it today at home. I would say it was a good movie. Entertaining in parts, too slow in others. It's worth a watch. While I recommend it, I saw nothing in the story, audio or CG to have to...
