The seating is 12 feet to the area where my screen will go. What is the biggest size screen I should put there? I currently have a 80 inch diagonal screen....is this to much or is this ok? I just set this up yesterday...I hope it will work out!
I would suggest adjusting the recommended screen size for your viewing distance by your personal viewing preference, i.e., when you go to a movie theater and can sit any where you want, where do you sit? In the front third, the middle third or the back third?
I have generally found that the recommended screen sizes usally translate to the middle third but if you are like me and prefer the front third you will need to increase the screen size (sometimes considerably) to have a personally satisfying image. If you prefer the back third of the theater, I would stick with RPTV, plasma or CRT direct view.
To this adjusted screen size, I would then factor in the technical limitations of your chosen pj. If pixels won't be visible (if applicable) and the pj is bright enough for the room and the desired screen size/material then you are good to go, otherwise, you will need to reduce the screen size until it fails within the acceptable limits of the pj.
