I have been staying out of this because Seegs is doing such a great job BUT I don't agree with most of your comments about ambient light rejection. Stewart 100 and 130 do not do ambient light rejection. The BD will do that. Temperamental is a strange word to use regarding screen properties. If you substituted reflected light from the screen to the surrounding room services I would agree that the Stewart 130 does a much better job than ANY unity gain screen with a wide half angle such as the Stewart 100. You need a black pit for the 100. I have one and I have a 100 screen and it made my sony 1100ES sing where the Stewart 130 only made it nicely hum. A big increase in realism making the screen material disappear. But my screen is small, 54 x 96 and it is bright enough with the 1100ES. 3D is dim however.
Whether you use h or w as a multiplier for different aspect screen is just a question of semantics, If you want to use H, you can still use the w multiplying ratios but multiplying them by the aspect ratio of the screen. Multiplying the width of a 1.787 screen by a range from 1.0 to 2.0 gives a huge difference in the seating position. Throw ratios are based on screen width of the effective 1.78 screen size. If you are zooming for your wide aspect screen, the screen width of your say 2.40 screen is the effective 1.78 size and use must use that width by the minimum recommended 1,78 throw to prevent hot spotting and a greater multiplier would be better.
