    http://www.xskorpion.5u.com go to build tv projector.


    To fix reverse images and to avoid turning your tv upside down click on the next link http://earthprofit.netfirms.com/memsite

    make the picture better with a movie screen-
    A cinema-like "silver screen" can provide picture quality up to six times better than with any other type of screen or projection surface.
    With a professional-type screen, there are no hot spots or blurry images. And this screen can even be viewed in better-illuminated environments.
    How to Make Your Own Projector Screen

    Purchase from any local paint retailer a spray can of either:
    No. 1248 Testor's Enamel in Metallic Silver or

    No. 1401 Krylon Bright Silver Enamel.

    (Retail price: approx. $2.00)

    Spray several light coats onto whatever flat surface desired (wall, ceiling, plywood, wallboard, cardboard, etc). Any mounted surface or material should be firm and lightweight. The paint should be applied smoothly and on a flat surface.

    Allow paint to dry and make additional applications until a thick, smooth, even coat of silver has been applied. This technique will give you a professional viewing screen that will greatly improve your projected TV image.



    Watch movies in bed!
    Enjoy an additional benefit of your new projector by watching movies on the ceiling while in bed!

    lol, I changed my 15-inch flat screen TV into a 300 inch display with perfect sharpness (no change from the 15-inch, it made it as sharp as my 10-inch!) I love playing XBox Live with that tv, I can see for miles it seems. Too bad my quad 15" Subs and my 8.1 Surround sound (with a Modified XBox that can use 8.1 surround, I payed M$ 5,000 to let me use it on Live).
    Wake up the neighborhoods in the city 3 miles away from mine.

    Maybe that would explain all the complaints to the local cops :D

    Just to let everyone know, I feel that this thread was not intended as a tool to create an oversized tv but as a fun and jokingly thread.
