Well I finally managed to get the projector I was after from forums member PaulB. It was really clean with good tubes and only had a few small tiny issues. So with the Barco 800 I had, not working to it's full protential, and my review discs building up I needed the 808 installed as quickly as possible. To my rescue came James from www.crtprojectors.co.uk who said it would take two days and arrived on Monday at 12 noon. A quick look at the room and he began unloading his tools from the car and set about measuring the room and taking the 800 down. The Barco 800 And now gone When my Barco 800 had been installed a few years ago (theres a thread somewhere) I thought it wasn't placed centrally enough in the room by the installer, but had assumed it was maybe just the shape of the room. James however checked things and they were not right, so he re-measured everything and marked out where the 808 would go. Is that a laser in your hands? James uses Sci-Fi technology to get the centre line just right Once the centre line was found the new hanging bracket was measured out and the first straps put on the ceiling. If you look closely at the photo below you will see the holes for the original 800 install, these were a staggering 22.5cms off centre to the left. I obviously was never going to get the best from the 800 like that, and on a 9ft ceiling mounted flush, ah well. First straps installed Next James removed the original hangers from the bottom of the 808 and added the second stage of his hanging device (designed by him it looks industrial but allows movement on all planes for fine tuning of the placement). Bracket attachments added to the 808 Next step was to check everything was flush and to add the correct drop for the Projector. This meant that the 808 is at the best position to offer the maximum focus and brightness without running components too hard, allowing the projector to work at it's best. Double and Triple checking everything This part of the install took the longest time, about 6 hours or more, just to get things just right, and that was to prove critical later on. By this point I had a thumping sore head due to tiredness from working excessive hours for the last seven days and my enthusiasm was begining to wane. But before much longer it was time to get the 808 loaded to the lift.
