I would interested in your findings WRT the EE box. I have one I never bothered to install. I frankly never sensed a need. One of my rationales, perhaps not borne up by facts, was that the EE box...

In my case I find that I must first zero out any lens shift as a starting point. Which is what Ron is saying. One way to do that is to turn the projector on and then center the light exiting through...
