No, I'm thinking of building one at some point though. The additional
cost of a motorized screen over a manual one seems a bit excessive
for what you get. For $300-$500 a stepper motor control unit should
be possible. This would give very fine grain control.

Actually it turns out Da-lite does have such a unit.
Its infrared remote controlled with 4 buttons that can be
set to the exact positions desired. Its a dual motor, screen
plus blackout curtain design. Its large, eats up about
a foot of vertical height, it weighs 117 lbs, and its $4254 retail.
Ouch. Time to find a better way.
