I still haven't disposed of that damn 10 foot-long metal case from the 120" that they replaced. I'll probably take a hack saw to it and chop it up.

I don't know. I took it to show just how cheap these things are to make. The margins are probably huge, especially on the tensioned screens. Look at the price differential between the regular...

I assume the Epson 5030 would work equally well? I'm throwing about 12'6" for a 110" screen. I've only done a little reading on the DNP 08-85 but it sounds like a contender for me - decent light...

Keep in mind that projectors don't actually project black. Turn off the projector and leave everything else in the room as it was in terms of ambient light. Can you still see the screen - assuming...

I don't suppose there is a MB app for Synology NAS units? I currently run a Synology 412+ and don't have a dedicated server or HTPC running 24/7. Plex has a plug-in for my NAS. Although I'm toying...
