    Can anyone advise the best distance to setup a TW100?

    2.9-3.9 metres is the recomended range but it seems to me that a PJ lens may work in a similar way to a camera i.e more light is available when zoom is not utilised. This would indicate that max distance is best but...........

    I would appreciate some advice from somone more experienced than myself.

    no surely min distance is best because the light won't have to travel has far so should be brighter.

    Well, for the AE100 it seems to be that furthest is better - I think the light loss from distance will be minimal. But I'm happy to stand corrected!!!:)

    That's one all so far ;)

    Perhaps this question is tougher than I first thought!

    Anyone else care to add their 10 cents?

    I think middway it's going to be. Hopefully it will give me some flexibility if and when I upgrade the PJ:)

    The room I have got designated for my cinema is only 11ft long. I need t fill a 8ft screen which means zooming in ever so slightly on my AE100.
    How much quality will I loose???
