I have a Sanyo plv60 ht and have mounted it in the wall. The noise reduction is tremendous. Mine is mounted on an outside wall and a housing has been built for it,so it is inserted from the room side. I am assuming that you have another room you are putting the projector in. That will require some way to align it to the screen. I used a large opening with a decorative plate made to match the wall. No glass was used and the projector lens is slightly smaller than the opening. I used a soft foam strip for sealing which has an adhesive on the back to attach to the hole so the projector presses against it for a seal. I cut an opening for the remote control sensor and put transparent plastic over it. After the projector is aligned I mounted strips alongside it to prevent it from moving but allowing for removal. Then the plate can be aligned to the lens and fastened down. Your installation will be undoubtedly different but it is a nice way to go as it is clean and unobtrusive.

just an idea, but you could use a small picture frame that matches your room trim, and use smoked lexan in place of the glass, it would not have to be that dark to hide the lens when it is in place.
