Just to share with you all on what I did.
I have a Sony 1271Q CRT Projector and experimented with the Tile Backer screen, a very nice pciture, but it hot spotted because of the glossy surface.
So today I went out and purchased 1 gallen of Home Depot Behr ultra white - eggshell finish paint. I painted it over a dark blue wall in my home theater, I used 3 thin coats with a short nap roller, there were some imperfections on the wall, but I decided to just paint over em and see what happened.
In a word, wonderful, black is black, white is white, and the color and image is simply stunning!!! All without a line doubler, scaler, using an s-video connection. We watched titanic tonight and I am so impressed I wanted to post it here and let all of you know, this is a great temporary or permanant solution for those of you with the wall space, mine is 80x60 4:3 ratio, and the 16:9 DVD's look great in this space as well, plenty of image to view, 92" diag I beilieve.
I will stick with this solution for now, and see what kind of comments I get this weekend on movie night. I also purchased some black non refelctive material from a fabric store, and fastened it to the wall using velcro on the ends when using 16:9 and it works great. All of this cost me about $40. The best part, if I do ever buy a screen, just re-paint the wall.
Hope you find this helpful!
Come see my current home theater and the new one soon to be under construction at
