    Does anyone know if the lens assembly from an MT1 can be replaced with that of the MT4? (much better throw ratio) I haven't yet looked inside so apologies if this is a non-starter of an idea.

    Anyone out there work for Tosh & able to tell me definitively?

    Not worried about warranty (expired). Am reasonably proficient at 'opening-covers-and- fiddling'

    Not yet - I wanted to wait until I had a 'project' to justify opening it, but as soon as I do I'll get back to you. It can't be too tricky(?!)

    Another question... what to you project on to? (wall/type of screen). I have only recently connected my HC kit up & test fired it against my DIY screen using a wooden frame & curtain blackout lining; It looks great to me, but I have nothing to compare it to. Lots of talk about B&Q's IceStorm paint.

    Parmenion: I recently opened my Sony projector because I like tinkering...

    Obviously all projectors are not the same but some are pretty similar. At first I unscrewed the case and lifted the top off to find loads of boards/wires!... and not a lot to clean with my duster buster. I then put the lid back on and put it back together and turned the projector upside down. On my projector there is a compartment which houses the airfilter, and behind this is another fan which obstructs the LCD panels. I blew some compressed air into the fan/hole and cleaned the fan up and found that the picture was much 'sharper' afterwards.

    How many fans do you have on your projector? and where are they located?.
