Hey guys and gals, I have a Ecp 3101 and I have painted my wall pure matt white and in order to get a real good white picture from my projector I have to crank the contrast and brightness and turn down the green. Hense making dark scenes un recognizable. I thought it was the projector but now reading some of these articles on screens is it my screen?? What and how could I improve maybe a pointer or two. Thx All.

Try, try, again and you will succeed!

I am using a painted screen and have done the following:

Primed and painted the left side of my screen with Behr "ultra pure white" flat.
Primed and painted the right side of my screen with Behr "gray tropics" flat.
I prefer the gray screen.
This is a very light gray screen by the way.
Flat paint has gain of 1.0.
