    Ok got on the pt500 band wagon, am awaiting delivery so now looking at dvd's, cables, screens etc. Have ordered a HK DVD31, together with a Denon AV2803. This is what I saw demo'd and was amazing. Also ordered some Acoustic Energy Evo 3B's (need to hide the credit card bills for a while!)

    Am now not sure about cables - is it recommended to get some quality QED cables (signature 75 and component video)? Does it make such a big difference?

    Next is Sky box - not sure if I can get Sky Digi or Sky Plus but whats the best way to connect to the projector - RGB or S-Video? Again is it worth getting a QED cable?

    The majority of viewing will be DVD and TV, minamal amount of gaming.

    Next is the screen... oh dear! Ok i will ceiling mount the PJ - 8 foot high from a distance of potentially 18 foot, the screen will need to go in front of a window - any issues with this? What size screen and recomendations pls - would definately like electric for upto £750 ish... Please help!! :smashin:

    Hi Tuneman
    I'll try to answer a few of your question.
    Cables yes it does make a difference
    Check out Bluejeanscable or Mark Grant in the power buy section, for component and dig co-ax.

    RGB would be the best connection from your sky box and only sky+ has a s-video output.
    QED would be fine
    :)

    18ft :eek:
    18ft = 131" x 74
    I think the ae500 may struggle at this distance to produce good picture
    I have mine set back 13.5ft and get 92x52 this gives me a good pq but I wouldn't want to push it any more :)

    Of course, you could buy a long focus attachment from pricejapan.com (TY-LECTE300)

    I haven't got one though so don't know what the throw distance changes to.
