    Razor I would buy the RD65 in a hearbeat based on your setup there, but I can't afford the additional mortgage for a big enough house down this neck of the woods to house the damn thing. :D

    Chumpy

    Have you thought about rehousing the kid's and converting their bedrooms into a home cinema. :rolleyes: Or you could sell one of the sofas and use that space instead... lol :D

    To be honest it's not that big :devil: , I'd love to go bigger :eek:

    I think off the top of my head its about 151cm wide and 56cm deep, perfect for a bay window :smashin:

    Did Keloggs sponsor you? is that how you could afford such a huge screen? :rotfl:

    Breathtaking images Razor! :eek: - very impressed. I'm think 50" may be my minimum now.

    Were they all high def images?

    :hiya: Caimbeu

    Cheers, no not all the images are HD. :clap: :clap: :clap:

    On these larger screens you seem to see allot more detail than the smaller screens with no loss in picture quality, These DLP projectors can be projected on a 100' screen with no loss of quality (My father has a DLP front pro on a 120'+ screen). So a 65' screen is easy work.

    :D

    I know some excellent plastic surgeons who would do a perfect job !!! :rotfl: :laugh: :rotfl: :laugh:

    Razor I couldn't get to sleep last night after seeing the size of yours :D

    Yes, this 'get your DLPs out for the boys' is an excellent idea :thumbsup:

    There's always so much said & discussed about these sets here in the forum but we never get the chance to see how they actually perform when they are setup in the home :(

    There is one thing that would also be a great addition to any pics posted & that would be to say what sort of feed it is & how it is connected :smashin:

    Something like this would give people a good indication of what can be achieved with a particular feed & setup :)

    Gosh, you didn't have to be so thorough ! :eek: :D

    If anyone posts pictures it would suffice to say what sort of feed it is & the connection used, eg. pic 2, pic 5 & pic 6 Sky Digital RGB Scart connection to get an idea of what's going on :thumbsup:

    I guess the other settings you have provided will be handy for anyone else with an Optoma RD65 :smashin:

    I would've bought one in a heartbeat, but the business of needing a PC to watch NTSC DVDs put me right off. So I settled for Plan B which was a Tosh 52" and a 103" electric drop down screen to go with a Sanyo Z3 projector. 'Course, I ended up having to buy a Lumagen DVI box to cure the Tosh's motion blur problem, so it wasn't a perfect plan. :(

    Regards

    Mark

    That is amazing stuff sounds like an upgrade or something similar. ;)

    Lion is preserving his by limiting the on/off procedure to twice per week. I think he only has a few on/offs left. :(

    No Kids or anything - just me, but housing costs so damn much in leafy Berkshire. I can just about get my old 28" Tosh Pro-Logic CRT and my speaker setup in the living room of the house I have now, but my baby needs space to truly breathe (not something you can do all that often in a semi-detached cardboard box).

    To be honest I hadn't thought of creating a dedicated space for Home Cinema away from the living room (my house, my rules :) ). Maybe I will convert the dining room of the house I am hoping to buy - it's pretty much a perfect shape for setting up now that I come to think of it.

    LOL... I call my set 'My little Baby' :blush: :laugh:



    I too have a semi and my house is laid out so that I have a 36 foot through Lounge. The RD65 fits perfectly in the bay window. :D

    Go for the home cinema you'll be glad you did. :thumbsup:

    Mmmmm..... just be careful not to give out your addresses to ashmufc boys. He's probably planning to come round & nick your DLPs :eek: :D

    Then again if he saw Razor's 65-incher :eek: he'd probably end up running like wild-fire down the road screaming like a big girl !!! :rotfl: :laugh: :rotfl: :laugh:

    I was in Dixons not 30 mins ago and they had a 60" LG Plasma with 5000:1 claimed contrast running a High def feed model RZ60PY10...Wow, VERY good picture, was all but 3-4 feet away and didnt notice a single imperfection. Damn razor, this screen was one huge MoFo! I am lost for words on how big yours must be! in the flesh ;) :rotfl:

    The sad bit was that at £7,999 (thats right almost 8 grand!) it is either already ruined or will be very shortly as the demo feed has an LG logo burning away in the corner...ouch! havent they heard of "Burn-in"?? :confused: ??
