    Hi folks,

    Looking for a spot of advice and any gotchas on a setup I'm trying to put together. I'm completely new to projectors so apologies in advance for any dumb questions.

    I'm trying to set up a projector system on a roof terrace. I'll have a couple of outdoor speakers, and cable it all back to a weather proof storage area for my equipment - amp, ATV, playstation maybe a cable box, and run HDMI to projector.

    Looking to maybe hang a screen of the eaves of one wall, and project onto it.

    Back wall to front distance is 4.2M, wall itself is 177 cm tall, 234 cm wide.

    Can anyone offer advice on a projector, screen & and how I should be looking to place it (Either fixed, or I'll have a coffee table there I could sit it on). Generally for watching movies and TV occasionally, ok with good enough for a reasonable price. Looking to spend under $1000 on a projector.

    Many thanks.

    Will this be used in darkness, twilight or during the day?

    Primarily night-time, though occasionally during the day I'd think.
