I missed that. There were others in that list that showed a 360 degree roll capability. It doesn't have to be tilted on the X axis, and a y axis tilt can accomplish what he wants.. Thinking...

You either re-engineer the entire room or you turn the bass down. No other answer. Bass is extremely difficult to trap as can be proven simply by pulling up next to some guy playing hip hop in his...

Wow, lots of action last night on this thread.

A couple of points to note. First, you said 10' ceiling with no beams or ducting, but the pictures and diagrams now show a beam that would force the...

I also agree with the others. The ideal screen size goes up as you watch for awhile. I am betting that you end up with 110-120" after living with it for a couple of weeks.

Also look at 16:9 vs...

I run a 120" 16:9 screen with eyeballs 11' back for primary seating. It feels 'right' to me, and is a fairly common configuration. A larger screen would push seating back a bit. Say 12' for a 150"...

some other thoughts. Some upper end TVs have RS-232 ports for control. My Epson projector can do this. That takes the remote out of the infrared spectrum and could be controlled by a laptop...

The remote is not the problem. It is that the manufacturers only place a single set of remote codes in the receiver. So if you have 3 similar Vizio TVs in the room, pressing power on the remote...

Are you doing all this over the air (OTA) and using the TV tuner? If so, your remote will be much simpler if you use different brands. This is a non-trivial set of switching as well, if you want...

He seems to be set on an AT screen with the speakers hidden. Not going to find a reasonable one for that price. My vote would be to live with the existing speakers for awhile. They aren't awful. ...
