    Ok im new to this and i read the av fax page so dont link me there. I might ask some ignorant questions but just bare with me.

    Im interested in buying a video projector for my home under $1,000. I dont mind second hand but I have no idea what brands are good and which ones iIshould stay away from. Also how big are most the pictures put out by the projector, 8 feet wide? Last question is how much distance to I need from the screen and the projector or whats recommened? Thanks in advance.

    This depends on the projector. Also, the further the projector from the screen, the larger the image (obviously).

    I suggest you lurk here for a bit, and you'll soon pick info up - there have been several threads on cheap/secondhand projectors recently. If you find a projector and want to know the image size it will project at a given distance from screen, visit Projector Central's calculator which will give you what you need to know. There is also a lot of other info on there that may help you get some more knowledge!

    and the seller said that it can be hung from the ceiling but not inverted. Does it have to be inverted to hang from the ceiling? And how do you have multiple video inputs? I saw this 4 av output, but i would want a 4 av input. thanks
