Since 4 hdmi ports is not enough for me with the CB4, I'm thinking that it might not be enough for a few of you as well. Any recommendations on an hdmi switcher?

Hopefully, you can do that! I hear a lot about how good those amps are, so it would be interesting to get your opinions on those against the other two.

Yes, they are easily scratched. That is one of the reasons why I like the DNP screens and the Elite Screens Darkstar (1.4 and .9).

I agree about needing extra lumens for the DNP .8 - at least for daytime. The DS .9 is much like the DNP .8. The Polarstar is apparently better for daytime. For me, I've decided want to have a TV...

Wow - that light falloff is pretty bad. BD is bad as well. The DNP .8 and the Darkstar .9 are the best in this regard - with little to no light falloff. It's amazing to have screen samples and see...
