    We have a Optoma HD65 in my dedicated ht (dark matte walls, dark carpet, dark matte ceiling, no windows). We project at a 90" 1,0 gain pull down screen. The ceiling mount is positioned approx at 11' 1" which with maximum zoom out gives a 90" image. My wife wants to upgrade to a framed screen...

    In one or two threads people have speculated that the BL-FS180B lamp assembly used in the EP727 et al is the same as the BL-FS180C in the HD65. A few dealers also specify the BL-FS180B as compatible with the HD65. Has anyone been able to confirm this? I ask because the B often sells for much...
