Care to elaborate on the 2.0 and CIA?

Ah. good point. I mis-spoke. They do seem to be the two most common choices tho... but I won't argue the point.

I like the 16:9 the best for what I watch and don't plan on changing it for now. I'm used to a 60" plasma so this will be a huge improvement either way. Thanks for the all info and advise I appreciate it greatly! I will post some pics and what not when I get to setting it all up! Only home for 5 days next week, hopefully it shows up in time!

A screen that has an aspect ratio of 2.05 is right at constant image area. Means scope movies and 16:9 content has the same area. For example:

100" wide screen with 2.05 aspect ratio would be 48.78" tall.
Your 16:9 image would be 48.78" x 86.72" wide = 29.38 SF
Your 2.35 image would be 42.55" x 100" wide = 29.55 SF

Width nor height is constant. To really make this work well, you need a four way masking system.

The Epson can't do that. For me thats enough to not consider the Epson.

For CIH which other pJ's do like the Panny ???

Agree. 16:9 is the most common with 2.35 probably being the next most common. Not counting many people in the world that still have a 4:3 TV. smile.gif

Is there ANY source for an affordable manual or automatic 2.35:1 screen?

I would think by now that it would commonly available but I keep coming up empty?!??!

If you are looking for a fixed screen check out Jamestown Theater. My room issues made my decision to go CIH easy as I had a limitations on height with a16:9 screen. If you want CIH then AE8000U is the best choice. If I hadn't gone for CIH, I probably would had went with the Epson although the deal I got on BF with the Panasonic might had still swayed me to Panasonic. I got the Panasonic for $1900 (After rebate) which included the ceiling mount, 2 3D glasses and a streaming media player.
