as some of you may know i'm in the process of setting up a home theater in my basement. so far my current equipment is as follows: Projector - Panasonic AE8000 - http://i.imgur.com/Z4CPJh.jpg AVR - Denon 4311ci - http://i.imgur.com/M4HWth.jpg I finally got around to projecting the image on the wall where i am going to be putting my screen. here are a few pics of that i took the other day. http://imgur.com/a/NFEJ4 the size of that image (in 16:9) is probably close to 130". i'm most likely going to go 120" screen, possibly 126", kind of depends on which screen i buy. but i have to do a bit more research and test the size out again before i decide. i also immediately noticed how much reflection happened with the light colored walls, specifically the wall i projected onto. i know a lot has to do with the actual wall being the 'screen' for my demo purposes, but i've decided to paint that wall a dark red color. last night i got it all set up and it's ready to paint, here are some pics: http://www.avsforum.com/content/type/61/id/86703/ http://www.avsforum.com/content/type/61/id/86704/ so that is where i stand now. i am going to be demo'ing out some speakers this weekend at a local store which will hopefully help me decide which 5.1 setup i want to get. then after that i will decide on the other details and post in here as well what i come up with. i'll update as progress on it happens. im hoping to have it all done by xmas but in reality i'm not sure if that is going to happen.
