Selecting a Home Theater Projector Screen 



There are good rules of thumb to consider when purchasing a Home Theater Projector Screen for your room, at least where size is concerned. The rule is that you will want no more than 4" of diagonal screen inches on your television for every foot away from the set you will be when watching cable television. The rule goes up to 5 inches per foot for satellite television or DVDs, and 6 inches per foot if you are viewing high definition television.
