Once i move into a house with a more suitable wall for a 100"+ project screen, think i'll go that route. Funds willing.. As HD Projectors really seem to have come up a bit.

I think what people are doing now...since those revo deals which is one of them nettops, is putting the XMBC software onto it and then connecting up their external HDDs to it so it can play all the dodgy content they have downloaded, or having it connected to their network so they can stream media from one pc thru the revo and onto their tv

Does anyone use projectors? We had two epsons, sold one for £150 because obviously don't need two and the other is sat in a cupboard doing nothing, I don't rate them at all compared to a TV.



Errrrrm no. :whistling:

I went round at Christmas and started talking about settings to him etc. He said he didn't understand all of thatand just left it on the default. Just shows though when you buy one of those and couple it with a Pioneer Amp and Bose 5.1 speakers you don't need to do too much to it!!!

It's a piece of software that plays video files, and music and other stuff, but that's what i use it for.

Do you currently use an xbox360, PS3 or similar to stream video files?

I'd love a HD Projector - but i also won't buy one till i got a living room which i could organize properly to have a 100"+ screen up.. Becomes very dependant on how ya living room is tbh.

Big time hehe :).

We are moving in 4/5 months.. Next house we pick will have to have a wall like that so i can put in a 100"+ project screen in.. Soon as i saw that thread i started researching into projectors and motorized screens..

Wife doesn't know yet, think i'll take a day off work and set it up all while shes out.. Then hope she doesn't notice ;).
