Oh...and my framed, non-reproduction (circa 1978-1983), original Star Wars Trilogy posters hanging in the T.V. room too...can't forget about those.
Why is it that DLP has sharper looking pictures and LCD/ CRT has better looking vivid colours??

Why can't we have both on a projector?
DLP also has the multi-speed wheels and multiple colour wheels (on the single chip versions) also have helped eliminate the rainbow effect.
I couldn't see those darn pictures either
Ya know im one of those people who can't really see the rainbow effect of DLP. It's being eliminated in new 3 chip processing methods, so maybe I'll get deal on a high end projector from today, in the future.

I couldnt see the stupid halloucinate  pictures in those books you were supposed to see after staring at em for hours on end either.
In regards to the projector. I also forgot the model I bought. I know it is the standard cheap model but still good at AU$2999. The contrast ratio is 2000:1 and the lumens is 1200. I find the projector really good, but with light from windows during the day, picture is not as good as watching movies at night. I do have blinds on all the windows, but light still gets through underneath!
Actually, I couldn't remember how big my screen is, so I made up a figure. I know it is bigger than 200cm but less than 300. I can't even remember the equivalent into inches!

Sorry guys. Hope I'm not being stupid.

And how do you find it? Do you see the rainbow artifacts? How much did it cost? Did you get it from Down under?
Wow is is 2.54cm. Thank goodness for google.
You could also use a calculator....
It is actually 2.54cms - I had to use this quite a bit when I have made subwoofer enclosures for cars....
When you convert inches to centimeters it is better to divide by 2 rather than 3. Its not only easyer to divide by 2 but its also more accurat.
Awww, I was close Very Happy

As a general rule, divide by about 3 Wink

Try 2.2

being a mal-educated American, I have no visual concept of how large a 220 cm TV is. I could probably figure it out pretty easily...but I think I'm gonna eat some more candy instead.
