Thread Starter 
I can't wait for thing to settle down in the PJ world following Infocom

What complete setup would you AE100 owners recomend to deliever the best DVD and directTV and local 720P ABC station.

My planned setup is a 119" 16:9 screen in HT will total light control.

PJ-AE100
What progressive DVD player
What cables to get
Scalars doublers etc....


Would it be crazy to set the whole thing up for under $2K. (smile ).

I have a 110" screen with total light control and would be careful about going any bigger than that or screen door will become an issue. I sit about 1.5x - 2.0x away and the picture is excellent...

Ultimate setup for AE100 :

radeon based htpc
hipix card for OTA hd.
JVC D-VHS
Panamorph/Isco II
Cygnus(?) I would like to check this out w/panamorph
Stewart screen

Xander, IMO the important thing is the ratio of width to seating distance, not the actuall screen width. I think people are starting to notice that they can push the actual AE screen width much further than it's DLP counterparts, even when the DLPs have a higher rated lumens.

I created a 150" image with the AE to check out some theories about sub pixel elements and I was very impressed with how well the AE picture looked. Of course you would have to sit at 300" to avoid screendoor, but I think the original poster will have no problems with a 120" screen.

Agreed

>>...original poster will have no problems with a 120" screen.
I was refering to a standard/normal size room here - if the room is large enough then sure... Also, at 110" I thought that a grey screen looked to washed out and a white screen was better...
