2. Does the Host act as a switcher or does it do video processing?
3. Does the projecter even have an internal HDMI port? A second DVI port?
Maybe you missed earlier post #146
The HOST isnt an add on unit, it actually part of the PJ. The PJ has been split into 2 parts. Most of the electronics have been removed and remoted from the optical unit.
The part that you are referring to as the "projector" is actually only half of the projector. It has most of its internals missing, as they are in the HOST unit.
The HOST unit connects to the PJ by a fiber cable, that can be upto 750 feet. I will be very glad of that facility as i will be running audio and video distribution throughout the house from an equipment room that is a fair distance from the Lumis' location.
