Well, about a week ago I got on here just to see if I could blow some money and was scoping out new subs. Man, I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger. 3 days ago my receiver died (2 months old) and just last night, my very old but very trusty screen quit rolling up. I think this thing is about 8 years old, its a 120" 4:3 so it was definately not perfect, always had to hit the stop button at the right time so it would fit in the 16:9 format I always use.
Anyways, 3 questions.
1: Is my screen fixable? The motor took a slightly higher tune, and quit going up or down. I went over and slightly pulled down on the screen, while I had it in 'going down' mode and it basically fell straight down relatively fast. Bad motor? Bad connection? Just old? If it could be fixed, I would like to start there.
2: If I can't fix it, I need some advice. My screen was white, what are the advantages of grey vs white vs etc? What do you all reccomend?
3: If My screen was 4:3 and 120" corner to corner, approx what would my screen size be in 16:9 mode? I can't believe I never measured. I'm assuming its about 96" - 110" or so, but that is purely a guess. I'm on monoprices screens right now and if I have to buy a new one, would like to upgrade. Bigger and better, right?
