I just purchased a bulb for my HC6800 at purelandsupply.com. I don't think the assemblies are OEM but the bulbs are; mine was a genuine Ushio bulb. They have good prices and a 6 month guarantee.

I doubt there are many people in my little area that would use a huge A/T screen :) I will probably try to remove the spandex and see what kind of shape it's in. If it's still decent, I may just put...

Interesting. Have you tried a clip on a piece of spandex yet? I'd just wonder if the spandex would be too thin or too slick to stay in the clip. I know you don't want a ton of tension on the material...

I don't think the frame breakdown and put together will be your problem; rather, the reattaching the spandex every time. Usually the spandex is stapled to the frame or people use the screen tight...

Unless there is a feature that you just have to have on an older model, I'd recommend going new (or that Epson refurb above would be a nice deal).

Don't worry about bending the cables, just wind it into a small loop and shove it in the box; trust me, you won't hurt it.
When you are punching down your cables, buy one of these - best few bucks...

I don't know why you wouldn't be able to go with an AT screen; especially if you go with something close to a 1.0 gain. I've had both a regular screen and AT and I don't think non-direct light had...

144" at 12.5 feet with kids sitting in front of that would be a pretty big screen. You may want it that big, but the 110-120 might work better for you. Plus that would give you more breathing room...
