    I think it should be 72 fov I was working it out wrong but I would add 10 onto that and try 82-83

    if 73 looks too wide so more degrees means even wider picture
    I dont want to guessing. I'd like to get accurate number based on math calcs.
    All fov calculators gave wrong number. Is it any chance to calculate it properly without guessing?

    I found it.
    http://ostermiller.org/calc/triangle.html
    SIDE A = WIDTH OF TV SCREEN
    SIDE B,C = DISTANCE BETWEEN SIDE EDGE OF TV SCREEN AND YOUR EYES (IN THE SAME HORIZONTAL LEVEL)
    It gave me decent 67' wich looks really realistic and immersive
    It may not work for tri-screen setup.
