OK....onto some info and guidance I need from owners:
1) For ceiling mounting, there are 8 M4 screw holes. Do I need to use them all or can I just use 4 of them from either the inner or outer pattern?
2) what is the required length of M4 screw?
3) can the IR emitter be hung from the ceiling inverted?
4) What angle does the emitter cover?
I thought this would be in the manual but either I keep missing this info or they expect a professional installer to have this info.
We mounted ours with a difficult (high/angled") ceiling mount, so I'll try and help...
We used the outer mounting pattern, but as long as you "balance" your unit carefully with the mounting "arms", then you could probably use inner or outer patterns. It will be dependent upon the particular mount design.
It makes sense that the outer pattern will give the most stability. Note, it's remarkably light, compared with our Benq PE8720.
With our universal mount, the directions showed various mounting options and it included a selection of screws. The 4mm screws are a sized so that you use different included spacer "washers" to mount to the arms.
It sounds hard when I try and describe it, but it's quite simple once you have it in front of you.
We hung our emitter upside down and pointed about 45 degrees down. It seems to have a very wide dispersion. In fact, I was surprised at the signal strength. Our remote control relay receiver IR "eye" was behind the Sharp emitter and shielded from the line of sight signal and the reflected
3D signal from the rear of the room (>50 feet), scrambled the remote relay...
To me the emitter is sending at almost 180 degrees...we have side seating and they got a clear 3D signal.
Hope that helps.
It seems like objectivity is getting a a bit drowned out by petty commentary.
There were a number of Z30000s purchased recently with the groupon deal, if there are any new owners out there that need help, or if anyone can add new material then please feel free.
