Does anyone know if there are firms which hire projectors on a short term basis? I'm thinking of buying a projector (probably the Panasonic PT-AE100) but I want to see if I can use it in my bedroom, where my HC is. I want to try b4 I buy but I don't know if any retailer will let me do this, so I thought about hiring a projector to try 1st. The idea of using a blackout roller blind as a screen is a good one, I will go the same route as JSW for the screen should I decide to buy one. The problem is this: the only place it can go is on top of the wardrobe. The distance between projector & screen will be about 9 feet. What size picture is a projector going to produce at that distance? Is my light fitting going to obscure the picture? How long can the component video lead be between DVD player & projector? Have a look for yourself. I will appreciate any advice given. Many thanks, Grimley.
