Interested how it turns out. Although objectively my Sony 40ES is vastly superior to my old Optoma HD33, subjectively I much prefer Optoma's picture, especially in 3D.

Here's a proof of ghosting. It's hard to capture in the screen with a crap phone camera in the dark so I turned the subtitles on. I pointed to most obvious manifestations of it, but of course the...

Have you ever regretted spending all the $$$ on your HT?

I don't mean PJ/screen/player/speakers. But the actual room construction and decor.

What minimum screen size gives you a proper sense of a real movie theater immersion?

I have two setups (one in our apt where we live and big one in a house that's currently undergoing some construction).

Well, technically it's not defective. Since there are no HDMI length requirement specs, it's not defective as long as it can pass a signal with a short cable, say, 1 foot. If it doesn't work with a...

Thank you for suggestions. Although the cable is in the wall, it doesn't matter. It's not squished in there or ran against electric wire... It's just guided through an empty wall, that's all. I...
