Topic:   Epson 5030UB Fan Issues

Thanks for your comments. I just installed the fourth unit today and yes, it has the same noise as the other ones they sent me. It is definitely the auto iris. When I turn it off the noise disappears. In all other respects I love this projector but I am wondering why Epson technicians did not mention this issue when I complained about the second unit? They could have saved us all some time and Epson a lot of money in shipping costs, etc. ALL their units make this noise obviously. I am unsure how to proceed at this point. They are prepared to buy my unit back which means I have to start over with another brand. Not sure I want the hassle as I am tired of all of it. I may decide to just live with the issue and keep it. I have not noticed a difference when the auto iris is off any way.

Topic:   EPSON 5030 - Need to get 120" diagonal from 11ft.

Just purchased an Epson 5030. I need it to project 110" - 125" from 11 ft. Any suggestion on how can I make this happen without moving into a bigger apartment? Lol

Topic:   Epson 5030UB Fan Issues

Latest update from Epson this morning is that they are sending me a fourth unit. I asked that they test it first but because I am in Canada vs the USA they cannot. So they are sending another new but untested unit. The technician is of the opinion what I am hearing is not fan noise but rather the auto iris adjusting and making noise. I cannot turn the auto iris off because it will affect the contrast. Conclusion is if the fourth unit fails then Epson will offer me some sort of a buy back option. I will post here and let everyone know the result. My question is if the fourth unit fails what should I purchase to replace it?

Topic:   Projector setup for Front/rear viewing

Hi! I'm totally new to the whole world of projectors, but I've been reading a lot. It's just that I can't seem to find answers to my questions. A friend of mine asked me for help cause he want a proyector in his living room, the strange thing is that he wants to be able to see it form the living room and also from the dinig room (screen would be dividing them, and its mostly going to be for watching sports and maybe music videos on partys) After a while I found a screen I THINK might work, its the "Elite Screens TE106HR2 CineTension2 Electric Rear Projector Screen" The projector that I found is an Epson Powerlite Homecinema 5030UB or 8345 (have a 6m throw and the screen is only 106", can't go bigger) I know it's not the best setup but its the only way I think and found it would work. Any help would be very much appreciated.
 
Topic:   Projector Distance

My calculator (link below) shows a distance of 14'8". I am a first time DIY home theater user. Is this the distance from the front of the lens to the screen? I am using a Elite Screen 110" 16:9 Sable Frame Fixed screen. http://www.projectorcentral.com/Epson-PowerLite_Home_Cinema_5030UB-projection-calculator-pro.htm?add=7835
