Sorry for the confusion about projecting the television picture onto my tablecloth. We also have a video projector which you hook up to the tv through the cable/DVD player, yada, yada. We aren't much for watching tv and I'm not sure I want my whole wall taken up by a tv! I now have a tv cabinet that has doors that I can close and not look at all that equipment mess. But I will say that watching football games on this giant screen is very cool! I feel like we are at a sports bar only without all the noise.
