I am sorry if this has been covered to some extent before but appreciate your input on the following:
1. If you had a choice between a Blu Ray player that does native processing / scaling (or an HTPC with madvr for example), would you choose that or turn off all local processing (some sort of pass through) and let the 3550 do HDR etc.? Same with SDR to HDR scaling. Look for your thoughts on that. Forgive me if my terminology is not up to snuff as I am learning more about 4k, HDR, HDMI, HDCP etc. than I ever knew before.
2. I have a dark basement with full light control should I need it. For a 120" or 133" screen that I have my eyes on, what would be ideal? I will mostly watch Netflix, movies (DVD, UHD etc.) but I also surf the web quite a bit on my projector through HTPC (forum like this, youtube etc.) and may even watch some TV. I like the silver ticket and it's in my price range. Go with grey, matt white etc.? Also 16:9 because 3550 is 16:9 based? I look for your thoughts, thank you.
