You posted a link from your website about video projectors at one time. I was wondering if you still have that site up?

Yes! Although my home theater hobby has taken second place to the Pilot (funds only stretch so far), here it is:

http://www.atlanticpaints.com/Theater/

Are you into home theaters with front projection systems? If you need any help, I can try to help you since I learned a lot along the way. Just let me know.

Best of luck!
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left!  :shock:

Nice Setup!
I use a Mitsubishi rear projector its a 65" 16x9 setup.
Off air digital via a Motorola receiver and also DIsh Network HD signals.

No room for a real theater (yet). Someday we'll do an addition to the house.

Ahhh! The BIG Mitsu!!! HD on that puppy must be a real 3D experience! By the way, Bobster, I didn't have room either, but when you want it, YOU MAKE ROOM! When the wife sees me with a BFH, SHE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!  :lol:

yup in the living room: its all Bright from outside/windows so a projection
ain't an option.

Need a hammer to the office/shop and we get the place.

Build barn first to put office and (electronics)shop in upstairs
Ody and motors downstairs. :)

And a bed to make a real dog house out of it.

Thank you! The projector alone is worth two Pilots, so I'm afraid to add it all up!  :shock:

AV Science is a good place for information on home theatre.  I'm partial to CRT front projection but AVS has it all.
http://www.avsforum.com

My theater is in my basement built around a Barco Graphic 808 projector.  I use a 6' x 10' Da-Lite Perm Wall screen.  I receive 12 digital channels over the air out of Knoxville with many shows in HD.  Image quality is exceptional.

Yes! I agree! AVS Forum is the absolute best website for home theater, without a doubt. I found them back in 2001 and have frequented their site ever since. I love my home theater because it's a full family affair. The wife, the kids and I love the experience that front-projection brings to our home. Can you say "new releases"?  :lol: I know you know what I'm talking about when I say that it's difficult to explain to people what a front-projection home theater experience is like without them ever actually having experienced it firsthand. Whenever someone that's never seen ours comes to our home and watches anything in there for the first time, all they can say is either "OH MY GOD!" or "I WANT ONE!". I can never get enough of that!!!  :wink:

Well, I'm glad to know that someone else is as nutty as me! Enjoy your HT and your ATV!
