    Take a DLP. 50" Sagem rear pro tv and a DLP front projector.
    Would the front projector produce a better image showing a 50" picture than the TV?

    I was drooling over that Sagem set and the nice man in Comet offered me 2 years interest free on it, but I have ended up spending just £900 on a HDTV ready DLP projector and, not only do I get a minimum screen size of 70" but it looks awesome!

    The Sagem set would have been helllishly large in the confines of my 11ft by 9ft cinema room. My PJ sits on a shelf up on the wall and can be put away in a case.

    If you have a large room, your going to get a picture that dwarfs any rear projection set or plasma several times over and you can pay less. And because the projector de-interlaces the picture, visible lines are simply not an issue.

    OTOH, am I not right in thinking RPs are more usable in ambient light (less washout)?

    I think RPs are more usable in a higher ambient light and they are more main stream (TV like) so are ideal for general day to day watching. The thing is ... if you are going have a home cinema then make it a proper cinema with a front projector and massive screen!!!! ... and use it a few hours every other day to keep it special.

    Oh Yea! And you need the cinema red walls and black carpet and recliners and the Dolby plaques on the black door and the drinks cooler and the spotlights and the gold woodwork and fibre optic ceiling twinkle lights.

    S0D the conservatory spend £10k on a cinema!
