It's a Mits HC6800 with a 18.6" throw. I got it as an inexpensive temporary projector after we moved. I've been planning on upgrading but honestly I like the picture and being able to set the screen...

Just something to think about if you haven't ordered already. You said AT might be a nice option in the future. You might want to get a free sample of the Seymour Center Stage XD material and see...

I'm working on my dedicated theater room right now. I've been told I can do whatever I want with it; it's my room. Since I'm doing all the work myself, I'm reminded it's my room any time I'm working...

Repeaters and Extenders are the same thing; they both extend the signal wirelessly. An access point is connected to your router/hub/switch with a Cat5 wire. If you can run the wire to use an access...

I haven't seen them, but anything I've read says those 3 models are pretty similar performance wise so all would be good choices. Personally I'd buy the Panny because I have a 2.35:1 screen and would...

I respect the professional's opinion, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with it. I can set my projector to THX specs, but I don't like it. When I was looking at TVs I didn't look at specs and...

I don't like curved TVs so they are a marketing gimmick.
I don't like 3D so it's just a marketing gimmick.
5.1 surround is enough for me so Atmos is just a marketing gimmick.

With the zoom, you could go back to 15' 8" if that helps you out any.

I agree with AV; a home theater projector is probably not going to work for you. I'd look at the conference room projectors that are made for bigger screens and rooms with some light. Looking around...

I think it's pretty much the consensus here that even though the specs on the 8345 and 8350 have a little variation, they are in fact the same projector. It's also speculated that since the 8345 is...

If you feel comfortable using a paint sprayer, I HIGHLY recommend you check out some of the silver fire (SF) threads. Since you don't have light control a SF screen will serve you much better than a...

I would echo what BobL said. If you decide to do the wall plates I'd definitely get them in and test everything out to make sure they work ok before you cut any holes in your wall/ceiling.

I picked up a used Mitsubishi HC6800 for about $600 this year. It's got powered zoom and lens shift and has worked great for my 2.35:1 CIH setup.
