This week-end after installing a dolby pro logic amp, I was watching a movie with the whole family... Then it struck me, if I changed the plans completely, I could use a bigger wall with longer throw capability and have a bigger screen!
Made me think about this sentence you told me.

... I don't plan on changing the current setup. Improving the screen, maybe. Likely. but not the whole setup. We've been in this set of home improvement for months, at some point it needs to be completed before we think about something else. And that something else might be a second room with projector. lol!
Back to roller-shade. There seems to be remnant lines on the surface - somehow not visible at normal light, but which reflects differently a uniform line when projecting on it. I assume it is the material that has been squeezed on the roller. I am wondering if this will wear off, or if it is something I could circumvent by applying a layer of paint. This is (to me) the most annoying part of that screen. It is not huge, It is subtle enough so friends and family can't notice it, and it won't show on camera. It somehow reminds me of CRT scanlines, and only shows on brighter coloration & on certain areas of the screen, but I see it and it somewhat bugs me.
For the time being, I decided to leave the blind opened and equipped with weights, hoping it'll help dissipate it.
I am not sure if this happens with all Levelor roller shades or if I was simply less than lucky. Nevertheless, the image is great once you can get yourself to not focus on the few lines - maybe I am a bit critic of it while I am working it out.
I did comparative testing with various surface: glossy white wall, pale gray unpainted drywall, the beige underside of drywall, black cardboard, a few colors of clothing and various papers in the pale gray coloration. I would have good result with white/pale gray wall, but the coloration & brightness is increased with the medium gray roller-shade <-- it was a great buy.
