I have always wanted a projector for my TV services (satellite, cable) and PC in a spare bedroom. Well it's more of a home office that I spend most my time in.
The catch here is it's a small room. The room is only the standard 8 feet tall, and is about 13 feet wide on the wall where I would like to mount the projector and the wall where the screen would be for it. So only about 13 feet from projector to screen. Fortunately, there is no sunlight in the room either to worry about.
I would like to know...
From experience or knowledge what would be a good projector I could hook up to my satellite box and also my PC? Cheaper is better in this case but I would still like the best image for my buck and something reliable.
From 12-13 feet away, how large and clear can I expect the picture to be?
What kind of cables would I need to purchase and run through my attic to my cable/satellite receiver box as well as my PC?
These cables in question 3 would most likely need to be a good 15-20 feet in length to reach. Would I need anything special (signal booster, repeater, etc) for that to work at those distances?
