How large is the base that mounts to the ceiling? It looks rather large!

David, thanks for the heads up on the ceiling support mount. I'll definitely check it out.

Just wanted to report here that I took the easy (albeit expensive) way out - I ordered the Peerless PJC-SNY1, Ceiling Mount, Cord Adapter, and 12-18" adjustable extension column.

Take care,
Cliff

Me too...only to find out that the 12"-18" adjustable extension column is too long for my application! So, I additionally ordered the 6"-9" adjustable extension column...hopefully that'll be the right length but I won't know for sure until the PJC-SNY1 itself shows up tomorrow. Oh well...at least I'll get around $100 back for the bigger column that I don't need.

I just got my PJC-SNY1 mount from AVMall and the plate most certainly DOES NOT fit the projector. I think they sent me the wrong piece or something because there's no way that the holes on the metal plate line up with the holes on the projector. For example, the hole that forms the apex of the triangle-shaped hole pattern isn't even centered between the other two holes.

Schwa, sorry to here about your SNY1 not fitting. Wonder why yours didn't, but everyone else's did? Did you get the PJRL-SNY1 instead (which does not fit)?

I called the vendor I ordered from today and it was not too late to change to the PJC-173. And I did confirm with a Peerless rep before changing my order that it is the mount designed for the HS10. So hopefully, I'll have a perfect fit.

Now if it will just hurry up and get here. Tired of the sweet spot being taken up by the HS10 on a box - at least I'm able to watch the HS10. (On a completely unrelated note, my Da-Lite HCCV and HCDM samples just arrived. Still waiting on Firehawk & Greyhawk samples -- I will post my opinions in the Screens forum.)

Take care,
Cliff

I followed the tip posted about the bcpvalue site and the 15th item down was for a Ceiling Mount For the VPL-FX50 SuperSmartâ„¢ LCD Projector. Did they actually have a listing yesterday for the PSS610 and I just missed it before they sold out. Oh well I guess I will order the new mount from peerless..

Regards,

Jose Lozano

jlozano,
The mounts were gone about 3 hrs after I posted the link.

The PJC-SNY1 mount does not fit. I think it's the PJRL-SNY1 that people might be having luck with. After my experience, I'm not going to say for sure, lest I end up leading someone else to disappointment.

Ah, the joy of restocking fees.

Hi,

Anyone here ever get a confirmation email about the $150 Sony mount? I didnt.

Mark
post #71 of 103
Good luck with the PSS-610. According to UPS, my Peerless PJC-173 (the "real" HS10 mount) is arriving tomorrow, so I guess I'll let you all know how that works out!
post #72 of 103
Hi Mark,
Just checked my email, and Ruth said that they just located the units in their inventory, and shipped my unit today. If you haven't received your confirmation yet, then email them as they do respond with in 24hrs.

Here is a quick mount for the hs10. This mount will swing side to side as you can see from the photos. You may be able to use this mount on other projectors also. All material is available at Home Depot. Will post 3 photos.

Parts List:
1) Stanley 16" shelf bracket
1) 3/16" x 1" x 7-1/4" bar stock
1) 5mm 8x12mm hex bolt
2) 5mm 8x20mm hex bolt
3) 5mm lock washers
3) 5mm flat washers

I had to take screen shots with my low res camera as the camera I used for the orignal photos was in high res. Here is the next photo showing how the projector can be moved side to side. The rear rubber foot on the hs10 acts like a friction lock for the rear cross clamp/support.

Here is the last photo showing the HS10 mounted on the wall. the mount cost under $15 to build. If anyone wants another view of the mount, let me know as I have more photos.

AV Mall has the Peerless mount designed specifically for the HS10 (PJC-173) at $145.

:cool:
post #77 of 103
One more photo.
Here is a detail shot of the only mod needed on the wall bracket. Just mount the bracket to the projector, and mark the cut point.
I needed a slight up tilt of the projector, so I mounted the front of the bracket flush to the projector. If you want it level, you need to make a spacer and use a longer hex bolt on the front mount point.

Cliffk,
Could you post a picture of the PJC-173 mounted to the HS10 so we can see the difference between it and the PJC-SNY1?
Thanks.
post #79 of 103
Can anyone tell me what the distance from the center of the lens to the top of the screen should be with HS10. The issue I have is an existing fixed screen 8.75 in from the ceiling. My screen is 92" w x 52" h.
post #80 of 103
Duane, the center of lens and top of screen should coincide. You might have to go with a flush-mount.

Does anyone have a Chief mount? How do you adjust pitch and yaw? I have a Peerless mount, and I must say that it is a real PITA to get it aligned accurately with this ball/socket joint. Doesn't the Chief mount use screws for alignment in all directions? If so, I might have a barely-used Peerless for sale...
post #81 of 103
I looked at the picture and if the mount looks like the drawing on the yellow paper, then this is the same mount that I have and I bought it back in December ... and it fits perfectly my HS10 ......... I guess they tried it on HS10 and saw that it fits perfectly so they renamed it to HS10 mount from 10HT .. I wonder ?!?!????

I just got my PJC-173 from Peerless today. Unfortunately, I paid $250 for it, but it is SUBSTANTIALLY different that the pictures of the PJC-SNY1 I've seen. It even came with spacers that go between the mount plate and the projector!

post #83 of 103
I have exactly the same mount except mine is a square.. I think they just took my version of the mount and only cut out different shape, and changed the price to $250 ... ehh got to make $$$$ no ?? heho

msink,
Did you get your conformation? They send the fedx tracking # with it.
Al
post #85 of 103
For those who asked, here's a picture of the top of the mount. It isn't the greatest, but at least you can see how the plate is separated from the base of the projector by stand-offs. With this mount, you can definitely take the air filter cover off without unscrewing the projector, but whether you can actually change the filter...I don't know.

I just read in an earlier post in the thread by EricT43 that asks whether Chief mounts use screws to adjust the yaw/pitch/roll of the projector. Now THAT would be incredible if they did; Peerless' ball & socket doohickey is a huge PITA.

I got an email from bpcvalue that they dont have any, and cancelled my order! ?? I saw the post right after it was made, and they showed 6 when I made the order.

Oh well.
post #87 of 103
I looked at some pictures of the Chief mount, and it looks like they do indeed use screws to adjust pitch and roll, but not like I thought. There are slots that the screws go into, and when you loosen the screw, the mount can move around within the slots. Not sure if that would be any better than the ball/socket method.

It would be great if there was a mount that had spring-loaded fine-adjustment screws so that you could get it roughly set with a ball/socket or whatever, and then use the adjustment screws to fine-tune it. With my Peerless, I line up the projector, tighten the set screw, and then when I take my hands off, the image moves, sometimes by a couple of inches! It's really tough to get it lined up perfectly that way.

DIY'ers, consider yourselves officially challenged ;)

Mark,
Sorry to hear that. Why don't you email Ruth and ask her to check around. Tell her that 6 were listed. I have her phone #. If you want, I will pm over to you. She is in Calif.

Mark,
Fedex just delivered the PSS-610. the box was labeled Bstock, but it is a factory sealed box.
Hope you have some luck with Ruth.

Sorry, Houtech, I'm still waiting on my mount. The distributor I ordered from was having it drop shipped from Peerless. I expect it sometime this week. Looks like others have supplied the pics you wanted.

Take care,
Cliff
