First I'd like to say that I've been reading this forum for the past 2 days and It has been extremely helpful, so thanks. Ok, now for my question. I'm pretty sure I want the AE100. The projector will be about 10 ft from the wall where I want to mount the screen, and I'll be sitting about 10 ft from the wall. According to projectorcentral that means my screen size can range from 6.9 - 8.5 ft - which means at best my viewing distance will be 1.4x my screen size. My room size/furniture setup is not very forgiving so the measurements for viewing distance and projector location are pretty much fixed. Would this setup be reasonable if I'm looking to get the most out of this "little puppy" ? My next question is about the screen - what screen should I get? - I intend to leave it permanently affixed to my wall. What's up with so many people painting prefabricated boards for screens? Is this do-it-yourself job really as good as the $300 (or however much Ill have to spend) screens? If it ain't I could use some recommendations on a good 16:9 screen. Which brings me to my last question. I'm looking to connect my PC (Nvidia Personal Cinema) to the RGB input and my Digital Cable box to the s-video input. The PC should output native 16:9 but the s-video will be 4:3. With the 4:3 input will the projector choose to: a) expand the vertical size (in which case the image will go off my 16:9 screen) b) decrease the horizonal size c) let me choose I'd be equally happy with b or c. In case anyone replies, thanks And this might be off topic, but if anyone has questions about the Nvidia Personal Cinema, feel free to ask me. After months of tweaking I've finally gotten it to work right.
