Can someone give me the distance to screen formula for Marquee 8500 please. I lost that link to the website that has all the downloadable manuals and calculators. Dont even remember what the sites name was. Had a name like Tom or Jimmy i think.
The best "formula" is to put the pj on a movable table, you can shut off all but the green tube, center and maximize it's raster feeding it your highest resolution, then move the table back and forth until you have about 1.5" of image spilling off the sides of the viewable area of your screen. You'll find this gets you closer to the screen than any of the factory recommendations. Which for HT is what you want.
THanks for the advice on how to place a projector. Before I get one into my home I wanted to do some measurements for furniture. I had that distance calculator at one time but list all my Favorite links when I installed WinXP.
Hey VR. My friend up in Denver is going to send me a free porjector for all the work I helped him do setting up his HTPC and room. I have two more friends down here in Phoenix that expressed an interest in putting projectors into their homes. They need to see one in action before I win them over thou.
