Great, glad to hear you like it! A few waves are normal and shouldn't be noticeable when playing movies. If they are, you may want to contact Elite Customer Service.

I don't have an exploded view of the Epson 8500 but you likely have a dead bulb. Red flashing is typically a bad bulb. You can check my post here on how to escalate with Epson Support to get a bulb:...

Yeah, this thread is still alive. 8500UB owners are a stubborn crowd. We love nothing more than to shove $150 bulbs into our beast of a projector.

No problem at all, your welcome. Other than the thin edge, there doesn't seem to be any obvious benefits to going Aeon. The Aeon is probably easier to build but beyond that, it makes sense to just go...
