Personally I don't see the point of a dedicated HT room if you aren't going to use a projector lol. But you said it was a small room, so I guess you could look at it this way... if you can fit a 110" or bigger screen on your front wall I'd go for a projector. If you can't then the extra size won't really be enough to justify it, and just get as big a TV as you can. That's not a rule btw, just my opinion. But it might help you work out some stuff. I love the big screen feel of the projector and screen. I don't think a TV creates the magic anywhere near as well. Even having the room dark for the screen helps with the feels. But the main thing is the size (that's what she said). It's so much more immersive when its a big screen.
