Topic:   Epson 5030UB - Wireless HD Transmitter?

I just purchased a 5030UB, I haven't installed it yet, i'm torn on whether to return it or not. Can this model use the Wireless HD Transmitter like the 5030UBE? My home came with in wall/ceiling HDMI jacks, but only 2, and I'd like 3 or 4, it seems like the wireless transmitter would be the way to go. Suggestions?
Topic:   Trouble lining up my EPSON 5030UB to my projector

The lens wheels are very sensitive on this model and I'm having trouble lining it up perfectly to my 120" silver light screen. Any suggestions? EDIT: I meant screen, sorry.
Topic:   Brighter, lower power Epson

When is Epson going to introduce a brighter, yet lower power version of this great series of home projectors? A high power LED light source, similar to the transition that is happening in automobiles, would theoretically allow more lumens for less watts and avoid lamp life issues. I absolutely love my 5030UB, but combined with my theater sound system, watching TV or movies is my number one home power consumer, yet on very sunny days, I still have to run the projector in daylight mode, which consumes the maximum amount of power. Wouldn't an LED lamp source allow for double the brightness for the same amount of power?

Topic:   Solution for Projector Heating Up Room

I'm thinking about installing a whole house fan next to my projector (a little in front and to the left of the projector) to extract the heat generated by my projector. Is that a reasonable solution? What are other people using as a solution to heat?

Topic:   Projector vs Big TV

I've been looking for a good replacement for my Epson 5030 (which replaced a 5020), but I'm not seeing any good options out there. I use a 113" Screen Innovations Black Diamond G3 screen (1.4 Gain) and am PRETTY happy with it. However, with 80" 4K TVs available for less than $4000, I'm beginning to wonder if the days of Home Theater projection are limited. I mean it was always a niche, but I've had a projector since the InFocus X1 days and to me, the appeal of max bang for buck on big screens is starting to fade. TVs are getting so big and are dropping in price rapidly. The idea of never having to replace the lamp, not having corner focus issues, instant on off, and not having the room heated by the projector sounds really attractive. And even with the Black Diamond screen, a flat screen will always be better with the lights on. What say you? Are big TVs a real option for your next home theater?
