Thanks for the help everyone.

Bah, don't let these guys scare ya! I've been playing around with a couple projectors in our basement for a week or so, no room treatments yet, and it looks okay with some lights on, as long as they don't shine directly on the screen. Do you want 70", or do you want 100" for less money?? wink.gif

Seriously, you aren't charging admission, so try out a projector and see if you and yours enjoy the experience even if everything isn't optimal.

One thing to keep in mind is that the test shown from av integrated had very dark colors in the room, if they were beige (virtually white) the image would be WAY more washed out. In our room, the image becomes far worse if I turn on the christmas lights over the fireplace and they put out a lot less light than any of the options shown above. It is simply due to how highly reflective the white (or beige) color is.

I would see if you can borrow a projector to do some tests, you can even buy one and if you aren't happy with the results, return it, as long as it conforms to the store return policy.
