Thanks guys!

It only took three weeks and three different receivers to get it all working.

Come on over for the Super bowl or...The Masters.

You can actually hook it up to your computer. I just need to get a cable for it.

The pic with the lights on. Are they recessed lights in the ceiling causing that glare?

The projector is an Epson HC6100 and the screen is a 126" Carada.

Yes they are. I have 6 recessed lights in the room. I need to rewire them so I can control the two by the screen separately from the other four. The lights don't have as much glare as the picture shows. It takes about 75% light before it really affects the picture.

This is right after the screen was installed but before anything was working. You can see one of the lights in this picture.

You can also get "cut-off trims" that'll reduce a good portion of it.

The audio is the one place I went all out on. It pisses my wife off so it must be good.

Yes, black baffles and half openings on the can trim kit will cut it down. You can also put in lamps with different beam patterns so more light goes straight down.

I'll look into that. In the short term it isn't bad at all. Besides I have a bunch of crap that needs to be rewired anyway.

Holy Crap, the last time I saw a screen that big... I had to climb out of the trunk with the other six people to see the movie!

Make the kitchen a "Concession Stand" and get yourself a set of these and you're all set.

Nice work Scout.

Hey Cain you just bought a house and I know Tiny was worried that there was too much wall space. I think a 125" screen would take care of that.

nice.. what size is it? my gpa has a 65'' thats freaking sweet.. ive had a few friends work at best buy and ended up getting tvs bigger than what my gpa has..

ill stick with my 32'' as long as its a 1080i.. my room isnt big enough and it gets used more as a monitor than a tv.. and i use my laptop more than anything lol..

i tend to watch tv out in my shed more than i do in my room.. LOL

i got a HD projector that projects up to 204'' and a 140'' screen but i still havent set either up yet.. cant find any room =/ dad bought them for me off his buddy when i bought my wii..
