I just got my brand new JVC hd350 and Carada BW screen (114") and right out the box BAM!!!!!! I love the picture I can't wait until my friend calibrates it (I can't imagine it getting better) I sit approx 17' from the screen BUT Oh MY GOD!! After 10 minutes of Xbox playing & HD sports I feel dizzy and sick to my stomach. Didn't have this problem when viewing Blu rays last night. It was only when playing the 360 & viewing Dish HD. Is this normal? Will I get use to this? Does it have anything to do with I'm going from a 32" tv to a 114"? Any thoughts or sugested cures/remedees?

How close to the screen are you when playing Any chance of moving back a little when playing?

I'm back about 17' on all viewing. I could move back about 1-1/12'. Would that make a difference?

Perfectly normal for many. I myself cannot play any sort of games on my projection setup. Moreover, I cannot even watch certain types of movies (those with say fast motion like car racing). Often people have the mentality go big or go home, but being in the business so long I can tell you that really is subjective to each person and bad advise to give to newbies.

This is quite normal. Essentially it is a form of motion sickness and you'll have to get used to having so much of your peripheral vision taken up. I went from a 78" screen to a 120" screen and it took some getting used to with gaming. I have friends with screens close to the same size as mine that can't do games on them for the same reasons.

I play Xbox on a 126" Carada in my 1st row at 12.5 feet. For me it depends on what I'm playing. Modern Warfare 2 is awesome in the 1st row. If you can move back a tad then definitely try that. Congrats on your purchase.

Thanks for the advice guys, My whole family is really excited. I'll force myself to get use to it & will be moving the chairs back a tad. I LOVE CALL TO DUTY Modern warfare 2!! F.Y.I. my brother was set on getting a 70" lcd tv in his soon to be dedicated room BUT BAM He came over today and now has come to his senses. What's the point of a home movie room without a huge image?? I'll be posting images when I get it calibrated. If anyone has ANY sugestions please share, as this is my 1st projector.

The type of game matters too. FPS makes me sick on a big screen, but RTS games are fine. For me it has to do with the whole view moving vs an object on the screen moving. The whole screen moving implies to my brain that I'm moving and that makes me sick.

Did you ever get use to it? Or do you just play those games on a smaller t.v.?

I cannot no longer even do those on a 32" TV.

First time I played Resistance 2 on the 110-inch and I had a pounding headache after 30 mins. Now I have done 4 hours straight on MW2 without issues



It was the same years ago when I went to a 50-inch screen. It takes awhile to get used to. One way would be to watch a few movies in the beginning which is a smaller change than doing videogames where you really have to pay attention to the full screen.

Thanks for the tip!! It has seem to get better day to day. I will say this. My kills have doubled on MW2 since I got the bigger screen!! I can now see those camping little bast#@!s further out.
