  Thanks!  Wife is feeling better.

  I have an extra set of Surround speakers ya can have.

Sounds like a lot of work.  Not to mention haveing your audio unit so far away from the projector.
I just don't see it happening with out a major outlay of $.

Suggest you pick up a simple  Home Theater Unit for the patio.

 Starting at around $150.
13  Backyard Theater discussions / Projector specific / Re: Optoma DV10 vs. DV11 ....can you also hook up Video games with these Projectors on: August 12, 2007, 10:32:43 am

  Screen size depends on how much distance you have between the projector and the screen.
(Throw distance for the DV10 is 4.9 - 32 feet  ..  Max screen size 358 inches)

  The DV10 connectors:

Component Video: Yes
Video: Yes
Digital Input: No
Personal Computers: Yes

The "H" thing mite be:

HDMI: HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface that supports audio/video sources such as a set-top box, DVD player, A/V receiver, and video monitors such as a digital projector or digital television (DTV). HDMI is backward compatiable with DVI 1.0 specification and supports HDCP*.

HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio, and interactive controls on a single cable. It transmits all ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committe) HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio. First product releases using HDMI occurred in 2003.

HDCP: HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a method for protecting copyrighted digital content that uses the DVI (Digital Visual Interface) or HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface, previously known as DVI-CE) by encrypting its transmission between the video source such as a set-top box, DVD player, or computer and the digital display device such as a projector, monitor or television. To view digital HDCP protected content, both the sending and receiving device must support HDCP.

  You should wait untill dark.   The darker the better.    2500 lumes will work just fine.

Contrast: Contrast increases as the white point increases. Increasing the white point creates a greater difference between white and black.

Contrast Ratio: The ratio between white and black. The larger the contrast ratio the greater the ability of a video device to show subtle color details and tolerate ambient room light. There are two industry methods used: 1) Full On/Off contrast measures the ratio of the light output of an all white image (full on) and the light output of an all black (full off) image. 2) ANSI contrast is measured with a pattern of 16 alternating black and white rectangles. The average light output from the white rectangles is divided by the average light output of the black rectangles to determine the ANSI contrast ratio. When comparing the contrast ratio of video devices make sure you are comparing the same type of contrast. Full On/Off contrast will always be a larger number than ANSI contrast for the same video device.
