Too bad you're at work.
Yep, at work... Unfortunately I don't have any HD sources except for my HTPC, and then the only sources I currently have are som HD sitcoms in Divx format and Apple 720p trailers... which for now will have to be the best quick test.
Even after I am all setup... I still will only have the HTPC for my true 720p content. And the DVD player will upconvert to 720p, so it should look great, but not true 720p content. Maybe in the near future I will get HD DishNetwork programming to take advantage of HD TV watching. But mainly I will be happy with HTPC 720p gaming and movie trailers.. and upconverted DVD movie watching. Also I will love the 720 for slideshows of my digital pictures to show the family.
But as for tonight, I will project it only my white satin painted wall and take some pictures. (still looking for materials for DIY fixed screen with larger than 54" wide materials. Already posted in DIY screen section if you want to look at my post there.)
Also, I will scan the manual and post it as it's not even available on either Optoma's UK or USA sites. So that people can see the official offset dimensions... I was told 33%, I will confirm tonight.
