    My TV (41" Sony rear projection) is getting a bit long in the tooth, and in preperation for the next time it goes bang, I'm looking at the possibility of getting a CRT projector for watching DVDs and special events.
    The big question is, would 10'6" be enough space from wall to wall for me to be able to use something like a used Sony 1272? (I'll be getting a 28" CRT for regular viewing.)

    Thanks,
    Martin.

    I was thinking, back of projector to screen. I've since found a copy of PJcalc that has the info I was after, and it looks like I need to come up with another plan :(.
