    Help! I'm looking to replace my old 4:3 projector and can't seem to find a decent 4:3 home theater projector still for sale.

    I use my projector for mainly DVDs, but also enjoy the full screen 4:3 for playing video games and TV shows. I have a 13' screen, in a 25' long room, with the projector about 22' from the screen. The screen is a DA-Lite fixed-frame cinema screen.

    I was looking at the Optoma H56, but it seems that it is discontinued. :( Any recomendations for what's out there -- especially with good blacks? My budget is about $5k, but if something good is available cheaper, great! I figure 1024x768 is the lowest resolution that makes sense.

    Thanks in advance,
    _Scott

    Heaps of 'business' projectors our there. HC retailers tend to concentrate on the widescreen ratios. I'm looking at the NEC XGA DLP range at the moment.

    Thank you!

    Somehow I had never come accross the NEC HT1100-- looks like a great projector, and exactly what I was looking for. My local projector shop didn't realize it was native 4:3 (the whole anamorphic lens -> 16:9 somehow escaped them).

    I placed my order, and should have it soon!
