I have a bad glare on very bright screen shots such as snow or white/light backgrounds. Is this caused by my cheap screen? If so, any suggestions on what type I should look for? I'm using an Epson 8700ub if that helps. As you can tell, I'm new at this Home Theater stuff but really enjoy it.

Thanks!

Is your screen a Fixed or Retractable? Brand? Surface type? How large? PJ Throw distance?

Often, adjusting the Gamma can reduce overt glare, as well as using the PJ in Economy Lamp Mode.

Thanks for the info and advice! I'll check when I get home on the distance but I think it's around 12 feet. It's a fixed screen and about 109" diagonally. I don't know what brand the screen is because it was given to me as a gift from and AV guy who had it folded up in his basement for years. I think it was originally designed to be an outdoor screen because there was a black border around it. I cut it out and managed to stretch it out to remove the wrinkles.

Thanks again!

Trying the ECO mode on your projector is good advice. Painting a cloth screen more or less requires a sprayer, and outside of spraying paint I don't know of a good way to change the sheen of a screen evenly across a large surface.
