I have a 12-year old Draper 96" motorized screen, with which I am still happy. But I changed projectors, and I need it to drop an additional foot. Is this something that can be done at home, or does it have to go back to Draper? Other suggestions?

When you say you need it to drop another foot I assume the screen size is still fine, you just want the screen lower...why not mount the screen a foot lower, then build a nice wood cover over the housing? You can build it out of 1X6 or 1X8, kinda like a window treatment. (I forget what it's called)

That would be the easiest, but unfortunately would just be to obtrusive in the room. I am thinking I need to add fabric at the top, but have no idea if this a do-it-yourself project.
