I was after some advice on a media room in a plan that we are looking at.
The room currently looks like this ...
I am wondering how suited this room is for a home theater style setup?
I was thinking of having a setup with a projector that would project down the length of the room and I have been told by the designer/draftsman that the distance between windows 5 and 6 is only 2 meters.
Thinking some more about this we would obviously need some pretty good block out blinds to control the light.
My other concern is that would the 2 meter width restrict the screen size? (given the room dimensions).
At the moment we are still in the plannng stage so there is the possibility to resize/remove the windows
Assume for arguments sake, I was thinking along the lines of an Epson TW3000 projector and a fixed/wall mounted screen with a 5.1 setup (wired for 7.1 in the future)
Any advice, thoughts comments are most definately appreciated!

Absolutely you need good blockout blinds or curtains (or both).
As far as putting a screen at the window end of the room - you can either go with a roll-down screen (I always recommend motorised), or if you want to mount a fixed screen that's wider than the plaster wall between the windows you can always mount it out from the wall (with blocks or brackets) - Adrian Barber (one of our moderators) has done that, as has Matt in the Selby demo room...

can you get rid of windows 5 and 6 and still comply with light and ventilation with the windows on the side?
that would give you a bigger screen
