    OK, ill explain

    This is a rectangular bedroom, and judging by other people HC the rooms is just about perfect size.

    The thing is I have a projector (home made) and jsut need a screen/surround sound and the whole room is being re-decorated at the mo, so I would like some tips on how to re-arrange it into a HC.

    I drew a v.brief sketch of my room but the file was too large to upload onto here so if you would like it please email me and I can send it in email.

    Thanks in advance

    iv'e made a total of 4 projectors like yours using various lenses and different focal lengths and had to rearange my cinema around it because of the four different focal lengths there were four different positions for the pj on the ceiling on the floor, 5' away from the screen and finally 13 ' away from the screen all for the same size image
    if you still want some help i'll give you my 2 pennies worth my e-mail is garryyorke02@aol.co
