    Hey I have been reading a lot on this forum since buying a projector (BenQ W1070) and now it is time a sound system. (I should add that the video is coming from a RPi running rasbmc. It would also be nice to add an Xbox and Gamecube) My dad wants to buy a Bose Lifestyle 525. At first I was also...

    I remember on my Benq W1070 I had to rename 3D iSO or MKV files to ie Rocky.3DSBS for it to turn on 3D mode..... I am just wondering if you have to do the same with the Sony? !!!

    So, in looking for projectors over the years, I've always ran into the problem of ceiling height. My theater room is my former garage, and the ceilings in there are about 8 feet and 1 1/2 inches. In my situation, ceiling mounting the projector is an absolute must. So this really limits my...

    I have been doing quite a bit of research to find a suitable projector to replace my Acer 5360. Nothing wrong with it but I just have the "itch" to upgrade to 1080p. After a very bad experience, not to mention several hundred dollars of loss when reselling it, with Epson 3020 (compared to Acer...

    A few years ago I bought a Sanyo PLV-Z700 on eBay. It was my first projector; I was a projector newbie, and I have been thrilled with my purchase and experience. The price was definitely right as I got it for less than $800. This thing still wows visitors to my home for night viewing. Ahh...

    I have my mount directly centered of screen. My right side of screen is slightly shorter than my left side of screen. Am I suppose to center the lens to the screen or the whole projector? Its a 1070 benq with no horizontal lens shift. Is this the reason my screen isnt square?

    TL;DR version: I currently have both projectors setup in my basement. They are shooting on a bare white wall located 12' away. I have 3 weeks to decide which one to keep before the 30day return policy is up. I am susceptible to rainbows on DLP projectors. Long winded, NFL has now started and...

    Upgrade fever has taken hold and I'm trying to figure out what to pull the trigger on. The W1070 is a contender but I don't know if I'm rainbow sensitive or not and I can't find anywhere to demo one of these. So .... If you have one would you consider letting check it out for a few minutes...

    Hi, I have an opportunity to buy Epson 8350 for 2D viewing only for a good price (let's just say sub-$1000) and am trying to decide whether I should jump on it or pass. I only watch 1080p content (.MKV) sourced from Blu-Ray encoded at a high bit-rate. I use Acer 5360 (720p) + NVidia for...
