I was looking at getting a plasma but i realised on a budget that a projector would give me the big picture i want with half the price, just a few questions and ideas first. How long would the lamp life last on a projector with about say 2 hours usage a day maybe 5 hours sometimes but say 2-3 on average, if taken proper care of (turning off properly and not just pulling the plug and cleaning the vents every month or so), and when it does die how much would i be looking to spend on a replacement including instalation (or could i do that myself). Currently i have NTL Digital, DVD and PC hooked up to my TV, DVD is RGB Scart to NTL then NTL via RGb Scart to my TV, my PC uses an S-Video connector to my TV, I will soon be adding an Xbox 360 though so need to expand. The best way i see for setting up with a projector is as follows. DVD to NTL Via rgb scart as it is, then ntl RGB scart to a Component upscaller and into my amp, then component out into a splitter and one goes to Projector and one goes to a downscaller to RGB then into my TV again, i will be usuing my TV and my projector since i wont need the projector most of the time, and for casual viewing i dont want to be wasting the lamp life on my projector, then when adding the xbox 360 i just connect it to the other component input on my amp, for my PC i will run a VGA connection into my projector and have the normal svideo connection as it is, i know this might be a bit complicated and i dont know if the upscalling/downs scalling is the best way to do it or the cheapest but im not really sure what the best way is and i am pretty new to all this AV stuff, but please comment on what i have said and hopefully there is a cheaper/better way to do it or if my way would do fine. Another thing, i was going to purchase a cheap UPS aswell something at about £50 or so just incase my power cuts out, then i can turn off my projector properly and not damage the lamp, my house has dodgey electrical wireing and sometimes it likes to cut out so i think this would be a wise idea. I am also going to need a ceiling mount as it will be mounted above the window in my bedroom. Sorry about this post being so long and some of it might not even make sense but i hope someone can help me. I need some advice on what projector to get, what mount to get and what screen to get for it, my price range would be about £700 but i want to stay closer to the £500 mark. Here is a link to a projector i have seen and seems to be in my price range http://www.projectorcentral.com/NEC_HT410.htm , i am not sure if you are allowed to post company links so i will just post this one to be safe, also if it is allowed could you point me to some good places to get projectors online as i dont know very many AV places. Thank you for any help, its much apreciated. Damnit trust me to post in the wrong forum!, If someone reads this could they move it for me please?
