Thanks,

Stewart is a little bit smoother. Not talking a huge difference here.

Hi all,


I am new to the forum but certainly would appreciate help with your input as I build my home theater. I have decided on an Epson 5030 projector and considering a slate Screen Innovation screen, 110". Although it will primarily be a movie theater room with light control, I would also like to use for watching football games with some lights on as well. Does anyone have experience with this screen or other suggestions? Also, if you have your choice of AT (not this screen) or not, what would you choose?

I have the SI Pure Gray in a light controlled room. I can't recommend it enough. It is insanely good! IMO with a light controlled room you don't need to worry about the slate or black diamond features.

In a light controlled room, I generally would go with a white screen. Gray will help with black levels, but would need to size screen and projector to work with the room. Give us a call and we can discuss what would work well for you and provide pricing.

I received a few PMs for the DIY LEDs. Here's what I did.

I bought the HitLights IP-65 kit from Newegg:
*link blocked*

and the 5M extension:
*link blocked*

The kit includes the AC transformer, IR receiver, and remote.

It's important to buy the outdoor, IP-65s because their backing is stronger and they're a bit wider, so the press fit into the zero edge's channel. I learned the hard way by starting with the indoor.

I started the strip under the SI logo at the bottom of the screen. The transformer will hide in the rails behind the screen. I mounted the IR receiver just above the SI logo. The receiver is not visible, and it likely works for me because my walls are white. Black walls may need to hang it a bit lower.

Simply press fit the strip all the way around. Total cost: About $60.

(The pictures show my strip started on the left side of the screen.. this is when I transitioned from the indoor to outdoor strips. Half were indoor, half outdoor. The pictures show the outdoor strips only. The LEDs are also on their dimmest setting)

** I don't have enough posts, so I cannot post links. Awesome.**

Thanks..They turned out exactly as I wanted them too. But now I have another idea for a cabinet design so I have the speakers up for sale. This hobby never ends.
