Success - Third times a charm

My third attempt was with a Lindy 5M USB 3.0 cable. I saw someone else mention it (I think in Europe), and gave it a shot. No reviews on Amazon and it was relatively inexpensive. Not powered nor...

I tried the Sabrent 5M cable with even less success. It never powers on, power plugged in or not. The Hub indicates it's getting power through the cable. Switch back to the 6 foot cable included with...

Tripp Lite Cable is a fail for me

The Kinect Adapter with included USB cable worked fine. Adding the Tripp Lite 25' USB cable had the Kinect restarting every 30 seconds and the image refresh was at about 2 seconds. Voice commands...

I had similar struggles even after much preparation. I set the V-Area setting to the max of +35 and had to physically adjust from there. The manual suggests rotating your projector (or using the...

I looked into a curved screen quite a bit, because they seemed cool. Lots of marketing hype at the time. I'd avoid a curved screen, especially for your first. If you have a projector throwing a nice...

I'm not sure if 120" is width or diagonal, but for reference, I have a 133" (diagonal) 2.35:1 screen with the projector mounted 16' with about 18" of lens shift to the left and 8" down for an off...

Try looking into the Stewart Firehawk. It's a great light shedding material. In theory it's only a little less than BD, but I don't know how you get to 7k. You might want to contact AVScience as...

I vaguely recall signing up to receive an email about the Black Friday special on the 8000 from Panasonic. They likely have a new discount/promotion on the way.
