    Well my AE700 comes next week with a Denon 1910 DVD player. Ive got 2x HDMI-DVI cables to try (5m & 12m) and ive got a ceiling mount ready to go up.
    Ive got an 82" widescreen ready to project on. The seating position is 10ft away with the projector to be mounted above (close ceiling mount).
    Does anyone have any advice before the big day comes. My only worry is the screen may be fitted to low and have to be moved. When i installed it last year i didnt want to have it to high and get neck ache :suicide: but the AE700 should accomodate this with the Lens shift with no loss of quality if im correct. The screen is 19" from ceiling and i think the projector will be 11" from ceiling :confused:
    cheers for any advice :thumbsup:

    The lens shift on the PTAE700 will cope fine with your current screen position. I'm mounting mine high up on a shelf on the back wall - saves all that ceiling mount palava :)
