    • Ok , thanks guys,I would be able to move the left and right spks in and have them in behind the 16:9 area,that would be about 2.4 mtrs apart so should work
      Further to all this getting my head around all this info as I have never owned a projector,I need to still get my head around a few of the comments/feedback that I don't quite understand !
      Quark you have mentioned in another projector thread somewhere that to get the most out of the CinemaScope wide screen I should look at using an anamorphic lens?
      So I don't waste 25% of the projector brightness on black bars?
      I don't understand this statement (sorry )!
      When I view a wide screen movie (the Martian for instance )the JVC projector will fill the entire CinemaScope screen with no bars ?i think?
      When I watch a 16:9 movie (black sails)I will get black bars (grey bars ?)on each side of the picture ?,are you saying those bars are projected onto the screen?
      I thought that it was just blank screen with nothing being projected onto it?
      With the JVC being native 16:9 does this mean it can't screen a wide picture?if it can then what use does the add on anamorphic lens add to the picture?sorry for noob questions in advance
      Cheers muri
      Ps will check this weekend when I have some one to hold other end of tape measure if I can fit the 135" scope screen between the walls I think are about 3340 from plaster to plaster ,is it a good idea if it fits to have screen tight got to side walls,say only 10 or 15 mm clearance each side ?
      Thanks in advance guys cheers muri
    • Thanks for the information.
    • Most major online streaming services offer better HD quality images IMO.
    • SSD would provide zero benefit for a PVR (File transfer rates are easily sufficient play and record the shows - you can't play or record them faster than they're being broadcast) SSD is also about 5 times more expensive than a regular hard drive. Suggest you grab a NAS harddrive which is tweaked for low level sustained throughput. Something like the WD RED ($90 for 1Tb and $130 for 2Tb) Regards Peter Gillespie
    • I'm looking for a suitable replacement 1TB (or 2TB) hard drive to go inside my Magic. What specifications should i look for? Anyone have a preferred option? Any chance a SSD would work? Pros and cons?
