    So here is my problem.. Newbie to the pj world by the way. Understand the throw distance etc and picked the pj and screen but the issue could be the room itself.

    Got a great Wall to project on.. 100" but at the required throw distance there is a light fitting potentially in the way. I have attached a picture of the layout... Does anyone know if the projection would or would not be impaired by the dangling light fitting? 1393448340932.jpg

    If you can get a clear view of the lens from each side of the screen when looking back at where the projector lens is going to be, you should be fine.

    Some measurements might help too.

    I had to change the light fitting in my room to a shallow 3 way spotlight, so don't be put off.
