I am trying to install optoma hd141x on the ceiling but the supplied cable is only 6 feet. For my installation I need about 15-20 feet long cable. I am looking at few cables on Internet. Does anyone have a good suggestion on brand? Should I go with 16 or 18 awg?
I'm thinking of buying an Optoma HD141x ... how's it working out for you? Also, I gather from the installation manual online that you need to leave a 10cm (4") gap between the unit and the ceiling ... is that really the case!? Seems a bit strange ...
I bought it and my basement is literally dark. We don't have any window and once I turn off light I don't have any issues with light. Having said this. I absolutely love it so far. I am kind of using it to project approx. 150 inch and I don't have any problem.
I bought optoma 'a mount and I already have 4" gap. I could be wrong but I think most ceiling mount would leave that much gap.
Glad to hear it's all good ... weird about this gap, because you don't need it obviously if it's sitting on a table .... but then I guess heat rises so maybe with no gap it's more prone to overheating.
I'm looking for a 120" screen - so no problems you think with this projector at that scale ... good to hear that!
