It is my first screen. My first projector (not used for HT) was a Mitsubishi DLP. It has been a workhorse (about 500,000 miles on it, as I travel with it).
I have projected onto the wall at my house, but it is a textured wall common in Texas. I didn't like the texture or the color (tan), so I wanted a screen. The price was right ($207, including 50 ft cables- s-video, component, vga). I am going to get an HDMI cable, but right not my dish receiver for that room is not HD. We were supposed to get two VIP622s, but only got one. So that one went to the 62" Mitsubishi DLP TV downstairs.
When I finish up (hopefully this weekend) on the TV components, I will have an Intel Mac Mini with the EyeTV Hybrid recording HDTV pushed through the VGA connection. I have a DVD player with component out for DVDs, when I am not ripping and encoding on the mini. And the XBOX 360 can go back into my office on the Sharp Aquos, which since I dropped cable has nothing going to it.
I want to find a way to get rid of some of that wave on the left side. While it is not critical, when I think about it, it drives me nuts. However, I am like that..
