Hi guys,

I am the new member of this forum. I have looked around but could not find out instructions for the newbies to get started.

Can you please give me a hint? Much appreciated for your help!

Best regards,
Elton

The best thing to do is read the FAQs at the top of the different forums as that should answer many questions you may have.

There isn't a 'Home Theater 101' section in the forums, but the main Projector Central website has a lot of reading available, as well as a glossary of terms.

From there, if you need further help, and Google doesn't really seem to give you a straight answer, then just ask in one of the forums which is appropriate to your question. Most often this is the Projectors or My Home Theater Setup sections of the forums.

Just ask, and typically I will respond within 24 hours. A big problem with new guys is they often don't include enough details and don't really have a final goal to what they are trying to accomplish. They often also make budgetary decisions with expectations when they don't have any basis for either. A general budget is realistic and good, but expectations will be in line with budget and need to be formed on knowledge of the situation, not on demands for the budget.

I may spend some time putting together a write up for newbies into the projector world and stick it at the top of the Projectors forum section to help out with the basics.

Sounds great. I really appreciate your quick and detailed reply. I will follow up the instructions and try to be as detailed as possible if I have a question/project to discuss.

Bigscreen sounds to be a very good place where I can learn a lot, especially from active and trusted members like you.

Thanks again and I wish you the best!
