Right peeps, this might prove to be an interesting "build log" on the forum! As some of you know, I'm currently on a commercial support vessel being converted in to a luxury yacht for my uncle. It's a family project... I decided to bring my Shield TV onboard and he's impressed with what it can do and how easy it is to use. There's a "home cinema" below deck but it was extremely low tech. Ripped out the ancient CRT TV and replaced it with a 2nd hand LCD TV for now. Definite improvement BUT a long way from what we ultimately want. Exterior work on the yacht is going ahead in Latvia and I'm trying to plan this out in the 5 days it'll take us to get there from Norway. Some advice and recommendations would be welcome with the following topics... First issue is internet connectivity. Forking out for internet via satellite isn't really an option as it's uber expensive. Yes we can use our phones as WiFi access points BUT we don't get signal down in the cinema room (odd as i do in both the engine rooms). I don't have much experience with the USB dongles for internet, although if memory serves some Asus routers can use them if connected. If i can locate the router to provide WiFi to the cabins and run a CAT cable down to the cinema room, that seems to be a viable option. Second issue is the display. A short throw projector and screen seems like a sensible choice to me. I can have a small cabinet to hide it and the STV from view. If any of you reading this can recommend what you're using or one that's good value for money, that would be awesome! Waffled on enough, I'll attach a few photos and upload more as the project progresses. Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.
