    Hi Folks

    Thinking of getting a projector but the only place i could have screen would be in front of the curtains in the lounge, if i went down this path how visable would the image be from outside? or would the screen block everything?

    Thanks

    Tell us what you want to use it for (DVD's / gaming etc) and your budget and we'll hopefully be able to help, plus if any of the PJ's you've seen mentioned take your fancy for any reason...PJ :)

    Have had my Z3 for several months now and have run signals in through all the connections and I haven't had a lock up yet. I'm well impressed with the machine overall.
