The 2nd palm tree is off to the left in the first picture below (you can see its shadow).

World Series - Game 4 photo ...

I upgraded my projector from an 800x600 InFocus LP400 (eBay $150) to a 1024x768 Optoma 751 (eBay $425) to improve picture quality and to gain a digital connection option (DVI). Below is an example - I fed the HD signal from my Time Warner box to the Optoma using a 35 ft HDMI-DVI cable I got from MonoPrice.com (or I can plug the HDMI end into my upscaling DVD player).

I expected a jump in brightness (InFocus rated 700 lumens, Optoma rated 2500 lumens) but I was disappointed when it never materialized. The contrast/picture quality is significantly better however.

Ken,

I've read that some projectors have different brightness levels depending on what "mode" the projector is set on (e.g. Cimema Mode not as bright as others).  I don't know too much about PJs but it might be something as simple as changing a setting on the PJ to get the brightness you are expecting.  Just a thought.

Yes, the plans are useful to a lot of users; perhaps they can be added to the library?
