I built a DIY frame and I just stapled the screen on last night. I got it back up into place and noticed that the length is off, too long, by 1/4 of an inch.

The vertical measurement it spot on, 54".

Am I going to have a problem here?

I can only guess what happened is when measured up against a white back ground the 1/4" was more noticeable vs. measuring into the carpet or whatever was behind the open space. Feel kind of embarrassed as I could have sworn it was perfect.

PDX,

What with your being just 1/4" off (1/8" x 2) and your effective use of Black Cloth surround, your going to be fine.

Remember this as well, 16:9 formatting as broadcast or viewed from DVD can easily vary as much as 1.5" on the width (3/4 x 2) so your well within tolerance and actually better than many Screen Mfgs manage.
