Yeah I get a good price on the MKII and if I get my asking on TM then the upgrade will cost me just under $650, I reckon thats acceptable.
Ohh, speaking of buying stuffs, I finally got around to upgrading the screen at home, got a nice wall mounted 1:1 gain pure white 108" wall mounted screen for the media room. Size is PERFECT!! The old 96" was just a tad small. Took a new generation projector home on appro too but the difference in my current unit and the new unit certainly wasn't worth spending money on! Ordered another bulb, happy to use this unit for a few more years yet. Cleaned up all the cabling and got my pc streaming 720p content to the 360 nicely too, have a renewed joy with it all
I am loving my new 720p projector too. I have a new screen which I have mounted onto my background stands, as I can't drill holes in the roof at the moment till my shoulder gets better.
I have a 2.2 m wide 16 x 9 screen which matches the projector perfectly. = 241cm or 95" diagonal
Makes watching films a pleasure. Rediculously cheap over e-bay. It's a 1:1 gain black backed screen, and is 1000% better than the bed sheet I was using at the beginning
Mine is running over the HDMI from the PS3. Also with playtv. I'm happy with the setup.
I haven't tried HD from the home server yet. Till now I rent blueray disks to enjoy it.
