I'm really running out of patience. My theater has some issues that are starting to bother me more and more but I don't want to do anything about it now since we are going to move to a new house (hopefully bigger theater) in the summer.
I have a dust blob on my Epson HC6100! You can only see it on very dark, almost black scenes. Generally when I first turn the projector on is when I notice it the most.
My kids somehow put streaks on my screen. This is the opposite of the dust blob, you can only see it on very bright scenes. Like if the sky in a scene dips low enough to where the smudges are you can see them. I tried cleaning the screen with warm water and dish soap, it didn't do anything at all. I'm thinking about trying a stronger cleaner to see if its marks that can come off, or it might just be stretches in the screen or something.
I've been having issues with my Infinity sub for quite some time. I've noticed recently it seems to work more often than not in blu ray movies played either on the BD player or the Xbox One, especially if I unplug it and plug it back in. It doesn't seem to work on any other sources (incredibly annoying trying to listen to Pandora at a loud volume). So now I'm starting to wonder if the sub is really going bad, or if it's some switching problem with my Denon AVR. I guess it's going bad regardless because when it does work, it rattles on certain notes and doesn't sound as good as it use to.
All of these are gripes I've had for a while. Next summer when we move I will be working on a new theater room, with all new gear. I am looking into getting a new projector (Epson 5030ub, Sony HW55ES, JVC X35) and probably new speakers (SVS Prime, Pioneer Elite, GoldenEars Triton Seven). These won't happen until after the new house comes though. Of course these may be delayed depending on how much work (read: money) the new room will require.
Anyways, sorry to vent, that's pretty much all this post is. Me getting impatient and wanting new gear but now would be the absolute worse time to buy something new without knowing what my next theater will bring.
