Topic:   Throw Distance vs Screen Diagonal

I have a Yamaha LPX-510 mounted 17' from my 199" diagonal screen. Full zoomed out, the picture fits perfectly. According to the calculator, that throw distance should require a 143" diagonal screen. I have to replace the LPX-510. I need component video inputs, which limits choices severely. That plus the need to match a 119" screen w/a 17' throw seems pretty tough. The question: can I buy a projector that the calculator says will require 142" diag. & expect it to fit my 119"? Is there another factor I need to be looking at that would explain the 143" vs. 119" difference in the calculator vs. my experience? I am looking at an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020 Projector. I am also looking forward to th eincreased brightness.

Topic:   Yamaha LPX 510 shuts down just minutes after turning on

Thanks for reading my message...My problem started about a month ago when the projector started shutting down after being on for a couple hours.(the fan would run for a couple minutes after shutting down) I called the place where I bought it and they suggested cleaning the filter. After cleaning the filter I thought the problem was solved, however it started doing it again. within the past week now it shuts down after only being on for a couple minutes. I've checked my lamp hours and it's just over 2600, my salesman said to replace the bulb between 2500-3000hrs. I don't know if it's shutting down because the bulb is bad or if its some other issue. I've had this Yamaha LPX-510 for roughly 5 years with no problems and enjoyed it everytime I watch it. After it shuts down each time it would not turn back on until I unplugged the unit and plugged it back in. I assume something needed reset in order for it to come back to life... My instinct tells me that the bulb just needs replaced, however I thought I should be getting an onscreen message to replace the bulb, so I'm just seeing if it could be an issue unrelated to the bulb. If I do need to replace the bulb, do I just need the bulb or do I need to replace the housing with it. My searching tells me I need a PJL-520 bulb & housing. Thanks for any help you can offer

It's a Yamaha LPX-510. That Panasonic PT-AE1000U does look mighty fine though.

Topic:   Connecting laptop to Yamaha LPX-510

Last year I had a Yamaha LPX-510 installed in my dedicated audio room. I was surprised to learn that the projector didn't have a built in VGA connector for a laptop connection. My installer had run a VGA cable from a wall outlet to the projector and then connected a VGA to component adapter (via a female VGA to female VGA adapter). The component cables are now in the Input B spot. I have tried connecting 3 laptops and none of them will project an image. Two of the laptops were Apple Powerbook G4, one a 12" (mini DVI connector) and the other a 17" laptop with full size DVI. I have connected the two Mac laptops to the the VGA connector using the VGA to DVI dongle with the 17" and the VGA to mini DVI dongle for the 12". Yet, when I connect the laptops, I don't get an image on the projector using input B (component). The laptops recognize the projector, but the projector says not supported. I have fiddled with both laptops, pressing F7, changing screen resolutions, refresh rate, mirroring vs. no mirroring. Thinking it was a Mac problem, I tried a Sony Vaio PC and still could not get the laptop to project. Usually, I have no problem connecting any of these laptops to LCD or DLP "data" projectors at work to give presentations. Any suggestions. I am desperate.
