If there are any members in the Austin / San Antonio Texas area with experience mounting and calibrating CRT projectors, please contact me. I need help. Thanks.

May be best off checking on Curt Palme. http://www.curtpalme.com/

Haven't been on the site in years but do see they have a forum, if you can't find anybody I'm sure you can figure how to adjust yourself??
Should be fairly easy once you get the understanding down, or at least that's how it looked when I was considering buying a CRT projector.

I have to agree with this; after being taught the basics I was able to maintain my first CRT a Seleco/SIM2 310 to perform quite acceptably with regards to convergence adjustment etc. although great care (and patience) is needed when prodding around under the hood making these adjustments as there are some serious voltages (25k upwards) present in this sort of kit, my second CRT a Seleco SVP400HT was somewhat more advanced with a digital chassis and all necessary adjustments could be made using the service remote with no need to venture under the hood except for perhaps lens adjustment which once set shouldn’t need to be touched again unless the pj has been moved.

It's not difficult. Mounting is another story though.

Yeah, I remember if you wanted to do your ceiling you needed to reinforce with some type of beam.
When I was thinking of getting one I was going to do the coffee table style to cover it but then decided for some reason on a DLP
and was happy with the results but haven't actually used it in over 5 years.

Need to dust that sucker off and get it running again.

I'm going to mount it next week. I have the factory mount that I'll bolt into unistrut, which is, in turn, bolted into the ceiling beams with lag bolts. The whole thing is giving me grey hair.

After that, I'll try to get the whole thing calibrated, and then I'll decide if I want to spend any money on a scaler.

I had to cut down a table to get it at the height I wanted, but well worth it compared to mounting.
