This evening I pulled out the lamp on my RS20 (original lamp with less than 800 hours) and cleaned the prism with a Lenspen and lens wipes. There was a fine coat of film covering the prism. I fired up the projector and instantly noticed the increase in light. Its always great when you can do an easy tweak and see results.

Beautiful space Rob - love the ceiling and grey color scheme. I plan on a similar palette.

Just how bad is the pincushioning, and what screen are you using? I'll be doing a 115" wide 2.35 through a Panamorph from approximately 10' back and expect a similar result. To partially compensate, I decided to go with a curved screen, but also know that its standard 40' radius will be insufficient to completely eliminate the problem.

Theater for Hobbits 1.0 - One of the smallest-ever (13' x 8' x 6'8") AVS builds!

Theater for Hobbits 2.0 - AVS HT of the Month - This time it's 2.35 CIH in a 10' x 10' alcove!

Thanks. I have the image zoomed out slightly to minimize the pincushioning but once the film is on I don't think twice about it. I'm not even considering a curved screen. For me, the visible pixels from being so close is more of a concern but I plan to upgrade soon. My lens to screen is barely more than yours and this is a 136" wide screen. I wouldn't decrease the size of my screen to reduce the pincushioning if given an option. The image is completely immersive.

On the subject of pixel visibility, I took the Darbee out of the chain because it started developing sync issues. Pixel visibility has decreased along with the perceived sharpness. I have an earlier version of the Darblet so it will go in for firmware upgrade under warranty.

You know you could pull those seals off your door and spray paint them and the screw heads dark brown so they don't stick out as much visually, right? Just an idea. I realize it would be additional work.

One of these days I'll get to the darkening of the details of the room. They don't stand out but I'll eventually get to them. I also need to paint the registers and return grill.
