    I was wondering if it would be greedy to have my Tosh MT1z LCD for Game playing (Flight sim/Grandprix etc)in 4.3, and a floor mounted CRT for movie watching with a drop down 16x9 screen! if so which CRT would you recommend?. Keenly priced CRT's only!.

    Nic, the best method I find is plain old-fashioned bribery. When going to a projector demo in Glasgow (just for example), you make a long weekend of it, stay in a nice hotel, eat in a nice brasserie and spend the afternoon holding the bags whilst she shops for clothes.

    Cheers,
    Liam

    Liam,
    This is what I offered and she turned me down! I went up on my own. When I got back all she said was I wish I had come as well. I can't win. We never cover these problems in the forum.

    Regards Nic

    Glasgow's a great place! Shopping is better than in London. Edinburgh is only just up the road too.(would live there if I could) Two great cities for the price of one!

    I'm from Troon originally!

    I can recommend good restaurants in Glasgow and occasionally even good, cheap s/h crt projectors...

    On this site you should find a "realife" I did for chap. He has a Seleco 500 crt, AMX control and Stewart screen. When the install went in he had just got a JAP Dreamcast for Xmas (2 years ago). I remember the day we sat rallying inthat room. Steering wheel in hand and pedals on the floor... Amazing.

    Everyone should be able top experience driving games like this. With your whole field of view taken up by the screen it's just like real life. WOW!

    Rob,
    I can recommend Malmaison (http://www.malmaison.com) for both accomodation and food. They do weekend special rates of £85 / room / night. Of course, the best thing about Malmaison is that it is about 100 yards from StereoStereo (my wife refused to believe that this was a coincidence!).

    Nic,
    You have my sympathy and understanding.

    Actually, I think my wife is playing me for a fool with this projector lark - I reckon that she's just as keen to get one, but she's happy to let me "persuade" her...
