You have to know how far off the ceiling your mount puts the projector, plus the extra ~4.5" for the lens, from the bottom of the projector, PLUS the drop projecting (1-3") depending on distance to the wall. It's easier to mount the projector first, then mount the screen at the right height.
I'm thinking this is just what I'm going to do. I'll go ahead and get the image on the wall, mask where the screen is going, and then install that.

fyi- i changed DNR from default 7 to 0 and my lamp brightness went up dramatically!
Never thought of changing that.
The image is noticeably brighter and more enjoyable now.

also, Benq quick shipped my remote to me.. already got it today. outstanding..
