    This is my first foray into home cinema and am trying to get unbiased opinion regarding plasma vs DLP.
    I intend to use the setup for movies + sport plus occasional general TV viewing. Smallish room means I will sit about 10ft from the screen.
    The plasma I am looking at is the Panasonic TH-42PWD6 vs the Screenplay 4800 or possibly the 4805 with a 69 inch screen.
    The biggest concern I have is whether the DLP will provide good enough viewing during daylight hours without having to close curtains. Is there a distinct advantage the plasma will provide in this case?

    Many thanks

    DG

    have you demoed a DLP PJ espescially an infocus 48XX unit? If not do so rainbows are going to be a major potential issue. No Display performs at its best in direct sunlight/ very high ambient light........ you should always have light control.... a PJ will be more cinemtaic than plasma, a plasma is more of a TV type display, so do you wan a big telly or small cinema?

    You might also want to reconsider the size of the display you'll be looking at - a 69 inch screen at only 10 ft seems enormous. My viewing position is also about 10 ft, and my 43" plasma is at the limits of what I personally can handle at that distance. Seems that for such a small room, a projector might not be the best choice.
