    I never thought that installation would be so difficult. It looks excellent though!

    You lucky B*stard! And is the Rock Really that good?

    Hey Neil have you upgraded to a 10ft wide screen or is it the diagonal on the 8ft 4:3 you are talking about?
    Anyway you have me drooling at my forthcoming Rock ( also by your figures you get about $1.48 per £1 is that so?)
    Its gret to hear import duty on processors is only4 4.5% instead of %13 -I may even declare my Rock when I come back from Florida.
    You really scored on the 808s as if I need to say so, what year was it made as I have seen some with a two tone outer case and some as yours all white?
    Cheers

    According to the Barco Serial it was late 97. So 900 hours or so in 4 years. Low usage all round.

    Regards Neil.

    Neil,

    Nice to see you've got it up at last (!) I mounted mine last weekend. It took 3 of us to lift it into position and slide it onto the bracket. I just have to sort out new cabling etc as my old 320 was running slightly differently. I've put a couple of new pics on the site if you're interested.

    Cheers Rob.

    Hi Jeff,

    No, It isn't a new one. I sprayed it to make it look like a Cine8 , which of course it is more or less. I think it looks much better than the standard beige colour. I was going to spray the bracket black, but didn't bother in the end, too much of a hurry to get it up!

    Cheers Rob.

    Looks like when I finally get hold of one I also will have to budget for a can of silner spray paint as well.
    Also where did you get the ceiling bracket or did it come with the 808s?

    Rob, looking really sweet.

    I've now completely completed my room.

    Essentially the 46inch TV is gone, HTPC is gone, room is rewired, bought a new AV stand which is wider but flatter. Put all the kit on those great little reasonance pods that look like silicon breasts, hung the pictures and...

    had the Projector fully recalibrated both mechanically and electronically. Upped the resolution to 1280x720p@72hz which is a nice line tripled setting from The Rock. Its fair to say that the image is totally stunning.

    Pictures in due course.

    Regards Neil.
