    Hi,

    I would guess at a 6ft wide screen on the 8ft wall provided you had a DLP with 1280 x 720 resolution. Lesser resolution of an LCD may mean you would start to see screendoor. What's your budget?

    You then have to find a projector that's capable of projecting an image 6ft wide from aboout 9feet away, as that will be to the lens of the pj and it will have to have some space at the rear for cables or air flow.

    Gary.

    My HC room is 9" x 9" :rolleyes: I project a 6ft (widescreen) screen as Gary suggested. To get the 6ft screen I use max zoom on my Epson pj. :)
