Help figuring out the best setup for a home theater projector. Total projector newb here....
I'm moving to a new house with a larger living room in March and I recently purchased this Acer projector
after reading a lot of reviews saying it pretty much destroys anything under $500 away.
I did this lame SketchUp
for a visual aid as to what I'd like to do.
I wanted the Xbox and the PC and the receiver to all be on the screen side of the room because (from what I can tell) setting up the Kinect wirelessly is a somewhat expensive nightmare, I don't want a PC directly behind me on the couch, and I don't want to have cables running across my living room floor. It's old oak floors with area rugs.
I realize audio is much easier to wirelessly transmit, but for the reasons stated above I would much prefer the components in front of the couch.
To further complicate things the projector only has VGA input (it scales HD to XGA), so I'll be using the component output of the xbox and the DVI output of my video card with a VGA adapter. So, I'll need a signal switcher with remote too.
PS I did search first, but this thread
is about a projector with built-in wireless capability.
