Heya guys, I’ve recently, successfully built my first MTMini, and I am looking into building a larger one that i could have in the front room as a coffee table/media centre. Now as it is going to be a coffee table (and I don’t think I want t use an LCD) I am wondering if there any suggestions as to what projectors there are out there with a throw of about 40cm (from projector to tabletop (50cm for tabletop to floor therefore allowing 10cm for projector (is that enough))) and a diagonal projection width of about 30”. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Stu
