well it's been a while since I updated because I've been enjoying the theater. Got a couple of things I want to post about though. Firstly, since my PJ is a Pico the mounting has always been an issue - I was using a Monoprice speaker mount since it has the same tripod threading and it worked fine but since the PJ has no adjustment (no zoom, no lens shift) getting it aligned perfectly was almost impossible. While wandering around the internet a few weeks ago I came across I guy who was using 3 Vivitek Qumi PJs in a gaming setup and to align them he used photographer's focus rails, basically these are sliding rails that can lock in place and have very fine adjustment. I bought a pair so I could have up to 6 inches of movement on both axis, and it worked great - here's a pic of my PJ mounted now :
Also I finally got some of my display items up in the cabinet along with my wife's Wonka stuff and Mousketeer ears, and while my SW stuff looks a little cluttered (I really need to sell a few things) I'm really happy with how it came out, along with the concessions area.
Now on to a little bad news - last weekend we went shopping and while waiting for my wife to get ready I was playing Forza Horizon on the big screen. We left the house, returning 6 hours later to find I'd locked one of the cats in the theater. The carpet at the threshold was destroyed as he tried to claw his way out and the poor little guy obviously couldn't hold his bladder and urinated in one place on the carpet. After soaking it up and a week of applications of "Nature's Miracle Urine Destroyer" I think I've got it out as best as I can, there was never a stain but I know from experience that cat urine will return to smell in warmer months even if you think you've got it all. I'm hoping I got to it fast enough and with enough enzyme cleaner that it won't be an issue, but if it is and I can't stand it at least the carpet/padding didn't cost me a fortune and I could replace it.
Overall I'm really enjoying the theater, watching a lot of movies and basketball games and playing far more Xbox than I should. My wife really loves it too, and that is perhaps the most important thing
