    BenQ3050 Projector - need a screen

    So are you saying to go with the Elite screen on the link? The Visual Apex screens are non-motorized. I know, I am stuck. I was looking at the 2050ST and then found the 3050 which did not have the "st" designation so I figured it was not a short throw model.

    BenQ3050 Projector - need a screen

    I must have a drop down screen. It will be in front of a fireplace and TV so there is no option to paint a wall or use a fixed screen.

    BenQ3050 Projector - need a screen

    I would love to have a fixed screen, but I must use a drop down screen. I'll check AVS and maybe Youthman will chime in.

    No screen recommendations? 16x9 120" to 125"?

    Is it worth it to set up for a projector?

    Do you use a drop down screen or a fixed screen? We must use a drop down screen and I read that many do not work well with short throw projectors because they emphasize wrinkles. I am hoping to get away with a $300 120" motorized drop down screen. Unfortunately, I cannot take my time because I need to move light fixtures and ceiling fans around to make the room work. Not much fun with this pressure on use.

    Is it worth it to set up for a projector?

    OK, after spending another day doing research and calculations instead of working, I think that I have this figured out. I cannot add two ceiling fans because the spacing will cause a strobe. I can move the existing fan back about 42" or so and it will still look right in the room (centered between four can lights. So after I do this, I am left with maybe 7' to 8' between the screen location and where I can put a projector. So short throw projector it is. I want a 120" screen (105" wide). A Benq HT2150ST looks decent. https://www.projectorcentral.com/BenQ-HT2150ST-projection-calculator-pro.htm I am just planning right now. I will need to complete a major wiring job so I just need to know what to plan for. I think that this will do it. Can anyone recommend a short throw projector? Maybe have one for sale?

    Is it worth it to set up for a projector?

    OK, I was able to get the projector calculator to work. I think that I need to plan for either a short throw or a regular projector. So I need to move the fan and replace it with two fans spread out so that they do not interfere with the projector. So here is a question. If I draw a triangle from where the lens of the projector will be to the edges of where the screen will be, as long as I keep the fans out of this area, they will not interfere with the picture, correct?

    What are some decent short throw projectors? I assume that I am better off getting a 1080 projector now (maybe used) and then a 4k in the future. Any advantage to a regular projector over a short throw?
  11. tigerwoodKhorns

    Is it worth it to set up for a projector?

    I can move the fan pretty easily. Am I better off with a regular projector or a short throw? How close to the screen can you get with the short throw? I will have about a 10' wide screen.

    Woodworkers - need help with accent wall finish

    I have several walls in my house that I want to finish as accent walls in wood. One option is reclaimed wood, but I want a somewhat smooth finish. If I buy reclaimed wood, I will need to run through a planer or sand quite a bit, but will it retain its look? See the first picture. If not, what type of wood do I need to use for something like the second or third picture?

    Is it worth it to set up for a projector?

    Abode flash is a security hazard. Careful using it. The room is 19 feet wide (I can go up to 120" wide with the screen to fit between the speakers) and 45 feet deep (open to the kitchen). The screen will be a foot or two out from the wall and couch is about 13 to 15 feet from the screen so we will be sitting right under the projector. Two of us will be watching most of the time. Nowhere to mount the projector except from the ceiling. One more issue. I have a ceiling fan in the middle of the room right now (maybe 8 feet from the front wall). I will need to remove the fan and replace it with two fans closer to the couch moved wide enough to allow the projector to project between them. This is a must (live in a hot climate).

    Projector Central requires adobe flash. Any other good calcualtors? I need to know the distance and how far below the ceiling that the projector needs to be. I need the room to look good when it is off.

    Woodworkers - need help with accent wall finish

    Interesting idea, but I think that the material is only 3/8" thick. Brads in the tongue that are long enough to hit the studs is the way to go if the material can take it.

    Woodworkers - need help with accent wall finish

    The installation videos above state to use brads (to the studs) for solid hardwood and glue for laminate. I prefer to use brads if I can. I really do not want screws to show.

    Hmmm. I want to be able to put a brad in the tongue and groove section to attach to the wall. Will it take a brad or does it need to be glued? If so, how do I glue it to the drywall?

    Woodworkers - need help with accent wall finish

    OK, I like this stuff, but what is "engineered hardwood"? https://www.flooranddecor.com/engineered-hardwood-wood/tobacco-trail-acacia-handscraped-locking-engineered-hardwood-941143803.html#start=33 The description claims that it is hardwood but durable. I just do not want to purchase a laminate or fake wood. I also like this, it is Hardwood, but I think that I prefer the one above. https://www.flooranddecor.com/solid-hardwood-wood/natural-tigerwood-smooth-solid-hardwood-100120740.html#sz=240&showBrand=true&start=1

    This may be the way to go. I don't know why I didn't think of just using hardwood flooring.

    Wow. That pine came out beautiful. Would Deft work instead of the marine varnish? This is for interior finishing so the durability is not as important.

    Are you using mini split HVAC systems for your entire house? If so, how well do they work?

    Soundbar?

    You need to watch Craigslist. Look for a receiver that has an optical input on Craigslist. You should be able to pick up a nice Denon or similar for under $100 if it is non-HDMI. I have a Denon AVR 3305 that is in perfect shape. Then keep your eye's posted for a 5.1 Quintet setup. You should be able to get one with a subwoofer for $200 or less in great shape.

    Schvitzin'

    We get 3.7" in a "normal" year. Many times less as we are in a prolonged drought. And I still see these idiots planting grass and letting irrigation water run down the street.
