Zoom, throw distance & screen door calcs for my room


Active Member
OK, pretty much set on the Hitachi 200, but just want to check the zoom settings I will use in my room with you guys. The pj will be 2.8m (max) from the screen, so, if I want max picture size I will get about 96inches diagonal at max zoom for the throw distance. Is this a good way to choose my screen size, or should max zoom be avoided/will screen door be obvious at max zoom??:smashin:

OK, put another way, should max zoom be avoided?
