    Hi

    I am interested in buying a projector & screen for my lounge.

    I am not quite sure where to put it tho. The Ceilings in my house are very high, My current set up is also in the bay window area of the room.

    Take a look.

    Thanks in advanced.

    A friend of mine has his TV and PJ screen in a bay window and it works well. His screen comes down and covers the whole window and more.

    I didn't notice any form of sound system in your setup there. Obviously you will need one if you go down the PJ route.

    Re. the PJ. You could site it on the rear wall on a shelf/rack or mounted on a bracket. I don't think there would be a problem ceiling mounting it. Obviously getting power and video cables to the PJ are the issue. The gallery and DIY forum has plenty of information on routing cables and mounting equipment on walls/ceilings inc. the correct fixings to use.

    I only really want to use it for watching football, call of duty and Pro Evo.

    Seems a bit excessive

    How much would a screen cost, largest possible for the space? and a decent HD projector?

    I could always put the projector on a table next to the sofa to reduce cost.

    I dont think its going to work for me.

    The biggest screen i can get is 7ft wide to fit in the bay (so about 95-inch screen size)

    It seems the hight would only go as far down as 4ft which doesn't come down low enough. I would get a neck ache watching it.
