ok well first off u got to costco and buy a projector..its about 900 dollars…and very high quality..then u go and buy a rca dvd player..i cant remember which one we got but it came with decent surrond sound..thers about 200 dollars now buy a ps2 for like 150 or w/e and then get a window screen..not a projection tv screen..its teh same quality…just get a window screen thats about 7 foot..now ull notice the projection tv goes up to 10 feet..well this was a sorta budget tv and if u put it at 10 feet it starts to look a
little gritty and fuzzy but at like 7 feet its crystal clear..tv looks a barely fuzzy if u watch it sorta close because its not hdtv quality but when u watch dvds and high quality channels it looks crystal clear…
enjoy..
and if anybody ever does this pm me…it will make me feel special..
if u appreciate this pls sign up for a free ipod..i want one

well, if u buy a $900 one, ya, its gonna be craptacular in the daylight. you’re gonna have to spend a lil bit more cash to get one that is at least 3500 lumens to get a good picture in daylight. i believe that’s what my friend said. he works for the University of Texas tech dept. that deals with installation/maintenance of AV stuff. oh ya, putting an xbox/ps2 on a giant auditorium screen is great, hehe.

naw it looks fine because at 7 feet its crystal clear.. its made for bigger screens so it looks fine..and it looks fine if u get the window screen because its made for blocking out the sun so that works out fine anyways..
