  1. Screens
    Hi, I can fit both 130" 2.35:1 screen as well as 135" 16:9 screen in my room. The effective screen size of 2.35 movie projected onto 130" 2.35 screen is almost the same as 135" 16:9 screen. (in square inches 6088 vs 5888) Furthermore it will alow me to buy Sony VP-HW55ES instead of...

    I feel like I'm diving in head first, as I'm no expert in home theaters, and far from an expert in construction & renovation. I'm a techie, as are most people in AVS I'm sure, and I've learned lots from reading through many of the threads here. There are still a lot of things I don't fully...

     Currently deciding between Sony HW55ES and Epson 6030UB.  Epson seems to have the upper hand in LCD if only because it is more recent.   Before I decide, is there a new Panasonic around the corner?   This is in an open basement, 12' throw on 112 inch Elunevision 4k Reference Motorized...

    Hi I'm very close to deciding on a new projector. I would appreciate advice on what you would choose. I would like to use a 2.35:1 screen but it's not the be all and end all. First row of seats will be approximately 10 ft from the screen and I would prefer to ceiling mount the PJ. The room...

  8. 3D Tech Talk
    Ok, last week I ordered my new Panasonic AE8000 projector, Pioneer Elite SC75 and Pioneer Elite BDP62 Blu Ray player. The HDMI cable I have going from my current receiver to my Epson 8350 projector is several (approx. 8) years old and is obviously a first generation cable. I do not know the...
  9. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
     My Epson 8350 crapped out on me and I'm in the market for a replacement.  Had this happened before Black Friday I think it would have been an easy choice, but I just put a 60" Samsung in my living room and am a bit tired of spending money on TVs.  This brings me to where I'm at now.  I'm never...

    Afternoon all. Not sure how, but a big finger smudge got on the lens of my Panasonic PT-AE8000. Picture seems unaffected though I sometimes feel focus could be better. Regardless, I'd like to clean it to ensure it isn't affecting picture quality. I have Zeiss lens cleaning liquid that I got for...

    Hello. Have noticed for a while the above projector's brightness will lower momentarily and then go back to normal. This happens whether the projector is in normal or eco mode. Have read this could be a lamp problem but what intrigues me is that if I replay the scene in which it happens, the...

    Hi, I have decided to enter the world of projection and have been doing a lot of reading on this lately. There is just so much information and different options available it still leaves me confused. Below is a picture showing my current media room which is our rec room in the basement. It is...

    I just purchased a new Panisonic PT-AE8000U projector. I got it all set up and have the lens straight ahead on the screen(no digital or mechanical adjustment to throw the image to the side, top or bottom) I can focus so that everything looks really sharp but the white lettering in the menus...

    So I've finally convinced my wife to let me spend money on a pseudo HT in the basement. It won't be a dedicated room, rather something I am throwing into a corner on an open plan against a 6'6" high by 12'3" all. I've had a number of questions racing through my mind and could use some help...

    I'm seeing the PT-AE8000 on US sites for $2,049 after a $350 rebate but in Canada it's $2,999 to $3,499 and no rebate. That's $1,000-$1,500 more in Canada! What gives???

    Panasonic PT-AE8000U Convergence I got my Panasonic PT-AE8000U back in 8/2013 and didn't do much setup on it because I knew we were going to get a new screen soon. Yesterday I started using some online calculators and physical measurements on what we were going to construct and what size...
