Sitting here in my office, now I'm not sure. 85% sure, I guess. I'll check again tonight; thanks.
You should try lowering the projector 4-6" if possible, that's what I did. You see, there are some advantages to being short.
Although you don't look all that tall on the Daily Show...
No, I don't believe that incarnation of me is that tall. =)
It's a basement, the mount is fixed; it's Good Enough as it is. I don't really have a way to move it.
I don't think it's fair to blame the projector--it's pretty amazing it does the zoom trick at all. But it really has to be at the level of the screen to pull it off.
I don't blame the projector so much as I blame the reviewers... not one review I've seen talking about this (admittedly, cool) auto-zoom feature has mentioned this limitation (in that you need to have your projector at least as low as the edge of your screen for it to effectively work).
In fact, in the manual, they explicitly say that you can position the projector up to 100% of the screen size off center.
Had I know of this limitation, I'd still have bought the projector. I think the zoom feature, even without it being automatic, is a killer feature. Being able to fill an entire 2.4:1 screen is a lot more impressive than not.
