If you feel comfortable using a paint sprayer, I HIGHLY recommend you check out some of the silver fire (SF) threads. Since you don't have light control a SF screen will serve you much better than a...

Are you dead set on spandex? Spandex will work fine, but if you are looking for brightness and won't be using speakers behind the screen I'd look at some other DIY options that may work better for...

Just wanted to point out the link for the CAT6 patch cable is for a crossover cable. You won't want that, you'll want a regular cable.

If you haven't solved this issue yet, I would check the resolution and refresh rate on your wife's laptop and then make sure your PC is set the same.

I picked up a used Mitsubishi HC6800 for about $600 this year. It's got powered zoom and lens shift and has worked great for my 2.35:1 CIH setup.
