    Hi,

    I currently have a Hitachi 32pd500 Plasma and Sky+

    All I want to do is sometimes watch football on a huge screen so I was thinking is there anyway to connecting a plasma or Sky+ to a projector screen directly just to get the image on a projector screen or would I need to invest into a projector?

    If so what is the cheapest projector screen that would suit the simple purpose of the above

    Thanks guys.

    LG if you don't buy the projector I think your only option is to sit closer to the plasma when watching footy. :)

    The screen is just the projection surface, albeit it is an important factor in the eventual picture quality (apparently ;) )

    The projector does all the good stuff.

    How cheap is "cheap"?

    Some people consider anything less than 5K as cheap!

    MikeK makes a good point. With DVD you'll get some impressive pics, but with other sources you may see more artifacts than you bargained for...PJ

    PS the Epson is a popular machine and should fit the bill
