Nice, building a new house and think we're going to go with a projector with Apple TV set up in living room. Any recommendations for a good projector in a room with crap ton of windows?


We have this one… 4K HDR. Projects onto a 128” screen (but you need to look at specs and measure distance from the mounting point to see what you’ll end up with.)

https://smile.amazon.com/BenQ-TK800M-Pro...07NXPYJFX/

The closet of the gameroom is our media closet, so the receiver/boxes/console all go in there. With that kind of distance, you really need to use an active fiber HDMI cable. Speakers mounted flush to the ceiling with the subwoofer in the closet.

As for the light, we have blinds and a blackout curtain that we can use to block out most of the light. In the morning when I’m playing video games, I usually even turn on one of the lights in the room.

My GF was babysitting a projector while her friend was traveling, and unfortunately, has to return it soon. She definitely doesn't want a TV, it doesn't go with her or the rest of her decor.

From reading reviews, seeing a few and pricing them out, the whole projector thing is much trickier than a lot of people think. You are looking at a $2,000 solution. For that money you can do an 85" tv with theatre sound.

I don't think you can spend much less than $500 for a good projector. Less expensive projectors deliver a very good picture. The issues are pairing it with audio equipment to get great sound, and noise from the actual projector itself.

My total out of pocket was right at $5k, and included everything but the screen (which was there when we bought the house March 2020). Very good quality speakers, receiver, routing all the cables, etc. The vast majority of that was hardware, and that was right at the beginning of COVID when things were really hard to get shipped.

That price also included mounting and hiding cables for four TVs.

That's a lot of cash, but I'm sure your setup is amazing, and you love it.

Yeah... It's where we watch like 95% of our TV, and I do all of my gaming there.

LG has a funky App store with no good apps. You have to get Roku to access ESPN app and others. But I love the sound quality on the LG Tv's. You almost don't need a surround sound system. Great for movies and music.

I've got a Sony tv, and I have no problems having ESPN+. I read somewhere that You'll be able to record soon. Does anybody know anything about that?

I thought everything on ESPN+ would be available on demand after air time.

RE: ESPN+
At&T with fiber here. Lots of apps with HBO Max included. We use the hell out of that. Prime is in channel list too. ESPN with plus and several YouTube's, Pandora plus all sports pkgs. Surround Sound, recording with cloud, voice remote and up to five TVs (smart, etc). The ONLY issue is no PBS channel, but it's available as an app for like 5 bucks a month. The internet is separate. We're paying $130 a month for both.

PBS is a free app on Roku and others. It’s local too (you put in your zip)

Yes, last year we watched ESPN+ games on our TV with the ESPN app over our Roku.

Been doing it a while now.

It's also on Hulu, not sure how much.

You can cast it on your TV so many ways.

Or, you can join a watch party....

I have espn+, Disney, and Hulu and I think the entire package was $14 a month

me too, I can watch it on the fire stick when its not on the Duece or the
