There are some that come damn close, but you get a projector for increased screen size, not because the picture quality is better than a decent TV. As someone else said, the pictur...

My AC did the same thing a couple of weeks ago and it turned out to be a bad thermostat. The thermostat display looked completely normal.
Go to the store and get a cheap thermostat to see if that fixes the problem.

I love beagles. I've owned three. Great temperment and lots of fun. Great with people. They will test your patience sometimes, mainly because of their nose and the fact that they are highly food driven (which actually makes them easier to train). they aren't for everybody, but if you take time to tr...
| O-T Lounge|| re: What does the OT know about HD projectors? - tigerlaw on 2/19/14 at 12:36 am|
I have an Epson 8350 and I love it. I would suggest you first figure out your setup using a projector calculator (google it), as different projectors are better for different setups. For instance, I needed one with a really long throw distance. After that, decide on a price range, then research the ...

You may be able to use a ferrite core to reduce the signal interference. They're pretty cheap. Here's one for under $5 on Amazon, but I'm sure Radio Shack has them too.
