I had the perfect spot in my basement of my new house for a 2.4:1 screen. Unfortunately the common "solution" was to get a CIH lens that would go over the front of the projector to stretch the image when I wanted 2.4:1 and then move out of the way when I wanted 16:9. Those lenses cost a LOT of money and were totally out of the question.

Unfortunately the W1070 does not have enough zoom to display both native 2.4:1 and 16:9 on the same screen when mounted in a fixed position. I decided to make things overly complicated and constructed a sliding projector mount that allows me to move the projector enough to view both on my screen for ~$0 cost.

I just finished everything up yesterday and have been really enjoying the outcome. Please ignore the "paint" job on the mount. I got a defective can of paint and will be refinishing it at a later time. Also ignore all of the cords everywhere. I set things up for a quick test run, not as a final solution.

Testing my frame.


Finished 2.4:1 screen.


2.4:1 Guardians of the Galaxy test. Note that there is a window letting light into the room just off to the right of the picture. This was taken about an hour ago (4PM).


Position of projector in 2.4:1 mode.


Elf in 16:9.


Projector in 16x9 mode.
Excellent set up...

Guys, i have noticed a weird issue with my benq w1070, not a problem at all, but i wonder if this is normal. I have my PJ ceiling mounted, with pj position ceiling in the menu, when i switch it to front in the settings(the image shifts upside down, as it is ceiling mounted), the projector runs quieter, is this normal? Any1 can test this? Just change projector position in the menu and let it run for two minutes, is it a bit louder in ceiling and quieter in front mode? Thank you!

I just wanted to say that I reinstalled 1.08 successfully but the problem is still there. So, I guess the only way I have to fix it is to downgrade the firmware but I am not sure if it is possible. Any of you guys have done it successfully?

Thanks in advance!
What if it's only a connection Problem between the HDMI Plug and the socket?

There was a Design mistake from Benq at the Case of the PJ, the HDMI sockets are not flush with the case, they are a little bit inside the Case so some HDMI Cable Plugs won't get in far enough.

Try a cheap HDMI Cable, cut the plug with a knife that it can fit deeper into the Case deeper into the socket.

Thanks a lot for your help! I had no idea of that issue. I will try what you suggested but I am afraid it will be related to the firmware instead of the HW as it worked fine with the previous one (1.02) using the same connectors
