Yeah, the number of posts per page you have set definitely changes what the URL is going to be, which may not be valid for another person. What I typically do is this:

1. Do a 'Copy URL' on the post number
2. Write down [POST= and then paste the URL that I copied in step 2
3. Delete everything in the URL up to the last number. If it ends with #post283029329, then I'll be left with 283029329
4. Finish it off with ]Some Post Description[/POST]

That is, this:

Code:
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/19-dedicated-theater-design-construction/1468993-retirement-dream-home-theater-4.html#post30631578
quickly and easiliy becomes this:

Code:
[POST= 30631578]Some Post[/POST]
The bulletin software translates that to:

Code:
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/19-dedicated-theater-design-construction/1468993-retirement-dream-home-theater-post30631578.html#post30631578
Which is also something you can transform the URL into, since it just requires removing the page number and moving the .html tag... but I still find the POST command the easiest.

I used these 4" LED can disk light because it fits right into a 4” junction box no need for the extra cost of the can.

It also comes in 6” which fits in the 4" junction box as well

I just posted about these! Good to see them in use. I've made it this far in your build, and I apologize if you address this later, but have you had any issues with being able to dim them the whole way?

they dim really good they are actualy Cree which most LEDs are any way. for now I have them on a manualy Lurtron dimmer and they dim down as low as the switch allows.

Follow up on screen being 2.0:1 with my screen being 126" wide that is just scope. My 16x9 image is only 116" wide I wanted to try something different for the super bowl so I tested last week on Avatar which is 16x9. Essentialy I just blew up the 16x9 image to fit the 2.40:1 image width. Since it is 2.0:1 screen what I had was a image 126" wide x 65" tall Image. There was about 4" of over scan into the velvet at the bottom of the screen. It was huge. a total of 142" of image on the screen. The game looked great that size.

This image was from my Samsung Galaxy S5 trust me the image and screen are square the trapeziod in the picture is due to how I was holding my phone.
Form front seat no zoom



that is 142" Dia in your face :eek:

Second row with sconce off

with sconce on low the Insteon dimmers are great with these LEDs I can dim to les than 10% before they turn off
:cool:
