How does the HD Tivo look at 110" (with HD Sources)? Does it pixilate any? Notice any artifacts?
Thanks for the compliments. The Tivo looks great at 110'. From time to time you will notice some pixelization and artifacts, but it is only on certain channels. The HD Channels look INCREDIBLE!!!! I am actually going to change the screen though. It is ever so slightly too big for the throw distance of the AE900U. Also, I like a brighter picture. In my HT upstairs I have a 92' Silverstar and Hitachi PJ-TX100 and it litterally looks like a 92' Plasma and has no trouble handling ambient light. So in the basement HT, I am going to go with a 106' Da-Lite High Power which has a 2.8 gain. I was even toying with the idea of getting the new Hitachi PJ-TX200 for the basement, but I think I will stick with the AE900U.
