Hi all you wise ones! I've just made the upgrade to HD, (HDMI amp, Blu-ray player, HD-DVD player) and would like to consider upgrading from my aging Sony VPL-HS1. The 2 units I'm considering are the Panasonic PT-AE1000E, and the Sony 'Pearl' VPL-VW50. Although of course I'm quite welcome to any other suggestions, since its been quite a while since I was looking around at projectors. (incidentaly, I'd prefer NOT to have a DLP projector, I seem to be really affected by the colour wheel effect). HOWEVER, there is a slight problem, well for now anyways. I have always used the 'side-shot' function on my old Sony, as at the moment it is not possible for me to get a projector sited slap bang in the middle of the screen. I know its a terrible compromise, but until I relocate, siting the projector in the middle of the screen just isnt easily possible. So, can these new HD projectors 'skew' the image, (either optically or electronically) to compensate for off-centre projection? (what do the 'lens-shift' functions do? Again I do know that this is a compromise on picture quality, but if I bought a new projector I would be looking at using this unit for many years, and hopefully a more sympathetic front room in the future! Any suggetsions/advice? Thanks in advance, Steve.
