    Any one else had to simply give up watching HC in this heat? What with the blow heater that is a digital projector, plus amp, dvd etc all in a room with these tempratures to start with, it's just impossible! :(

    Oh well, I needed to get out more anyway... :cool:

    Next on the budget: 1 AC unit... :devil:

    Hell yeah,

    Roll on winter. Heat the house with the projector and PC. Nights get darker earlier. No stinking insects. Haven't had the pj on for over a week :eek:

    :D

    Had a work buddy over last night.

    First demo of the cinema room and we went for the classic Apocolypse Now - redux as we both love it.

    Dont know who was sweating more - us, Martin Sheen:) or Marlon Brando.

    Just a shame we couldnt fit a surf in....:suicide:

    It's worse for me - despite the insulation, my loft gets pretty hot with the sun on it - about 3degrees hotter than the landing.

    I can vouch for that!! And that was BEFORE the heatwave. But if I had your set up Gary, I'd learn to rough it...:rotfl:

    BTW, mines all in now, new sub and everything. When do you fancy coming round and having a look...?

    Yep, my atiic HC gets pretty hot! I try to watch films late at night when it gets cooler and everyone else has gone to bed (got some sony 5.1 headhpones).

    The only problem is its so warm I keep falling asleep - I wake up with a dry mouth and hot air blowing in my face from the PJ!!!

    Army bloke - you'll be getting a pm. :)

    Normaly when it's warm in the loft, I have a fan running. Although I've been up there recently, it's too hot to watch anything for a long period of time, but openeing the window brings in some nice cool(er) air. :)

    I might get one of those evaporative coolers (no plumbing) which work reasonably well. I just may have to replace the fan with a huge Papst. ;)

    Gary.

    Yes, I agree that the weather is far too hot to use my projector, I have been using my air conditioner, but its so noisy its pointless watching films with it on.
