I am running the numbers to make my screen for a new HD66 and with the 5" drop from my ceiling mount and 6" or so offset from the projector the top of the screen will be a couple of inches lower than i want. If i tilt the projector up a little i could tip the top of the screen forward to componsate and allow the top of the screen to go a little higher.

Has anyone mounted the screen with the top tipped forward a little? If so did it look ok?

Back in the good old days before projectors with all kinds of fancy offset capabilities many people did stuff like that to avoid keystone adjustments. I don't think you will notice it too much and if you sit reclined it might even be a good thing.

Now if you paint your screen on the wall it will be a bit tougher to do.
