    i am just setting up a room for a home cinema, i am hoping to get the HD1.
    2 questions if someone would be kind enough to answer them.
    is the power plug that goes into the back of the projector, the standard size kettle plug?, (if it is i will buy a longer one).

    as i can't see any mounting holes on the top of the projector, if i am ceiling mounting it, does it hang upside down? or does it need a cradle type mount?.

    thanks in advance

    It's a standard kettle lead (IIRC.. only ever plugged it in once then left it). Mine is sat on a shelf (well, microwave bracket) so I haven't looked at mounting it, but generally PJs hang upside down when they're ceiling mounted.

    The HD1 has quite a range of lens shift, so you can even have it right way up above the top of the screen projecting down IIRC.

    thanks for the quick answers, so i will just buy a long kettle lead, then thats the power sorted.
    i was wondering if it did work upside down, or if flipping it over messed up its airflow on the cooling?.
    need to figure this out, so i can buy a mount and get the painting of the ceiling done.

    The HD1 has its vents on the front so it really doesn't care about top/bottom. It's got settings for inverting the screen for upside down use.

    If you're buying the bracket before the projector then make sure you get one that fits (the Vogels PPC200 does but some SMS models need modifying).
