The room is in a basement and has no windows but as I said, if I got rid of the TV I would watch some content with the lights on. The lights are all recessed can lights. Would it work in my room to do a fixed frame SI Slate for movies in the dark and TV with the lights on?
Definitely. A SI Slate will work for movies in the dark and TV with the lights on.
I've owned a Slate 1.2 16:9 120" for 3 years during which it was my only screen, thus used for movies, sports and regular TV programming in BOTH the dark and wiuth some lights on. Just last month, I adding a 2nd screen, which is a Stewart ST130 G3 240:1 153" solely for wide screen movie viewing with lights off.
Both serve their respective purposes admirably.
