    what is the best way for me to go about connecting this to my amp?

    is the best route via a long run of s-vid / composite (if so what is the maximum run for these before degredation of the signal) or are video senders a good idea?

    Also what sort of screen is best suited to these? something that doesn't cost the earth. Will be about 3 - 4 meters away from the projector and i want the biggest possible 16:9.

    getting this projector mid this week so any advise will be great.

    thanks.

    You're going to get best quality using component video, in my case I don't have an amp that switches component so I connect my DVD directly to the pj ... when not using an HTPC.

    If you really do want to use the amp. then S-Video is the next preferred connection method. 10m S-video cables are easy to get and not extortionately expensive, but bear in mind you'll not be able to use progressive output from a DVD player using S-video.

    The 300 has component, s-video, DVI and composite .. the latter is pretty useless as the quality is awful but is probably okay for a VCR .. and you can select the desired input from the remote by a single press of the button, IMHO that's the best way to switch assuming you don't have two sources you want to use component for.

    I got an AE300 a couple of weeks ago, so am still very much a n00b ;), and am using a 92" grey screen ... the image is a little less bright but it does improve the blacks greatly ... the pj is about 12' away on a stand and viewing position is right below the projector, the machine's quiet enough for that not to be a problem.
