They are always built custom, and typically you go through a draperies/shade vendor.

The Casio models have poor color balance and aren't nearly as bright as claimed when optimized for proper color output. They also all have very noisy fans. Believing that because it's LED that it...

This is generally the same for all display devices. It's part of the HDCP authentication process, combined with changes in resolution.

Typically though, it's the HDCP, not the resolution, which...

Blackout shades aren't typically black. They are just 100% light blocking, so no light can penetrate the material. If you have a Joann's near you, go to it and talk to them. The better employees...

If your budget is $400 max, then you aren't getting 1080p. LED or traditional lamps, you aren't getting 1080p at that price point.

LED is about half as bright as most of the traditional lamp...

The end result is that it takes about half an hour, for someone who knows what they are doing, to properly align a projector with lens shift like the 5040.

If the top and bottom edges of the image...

It means zoom out so the image is slightly larger than the screen. By a quarter inch or so.

Sounds like a HDMI-CEC issue, or possibly a HDCP issue.

At first I was thinking HDMI-CEC, but I'm leaning towards one of your devices powering off. This will force a HDCP resync of the devices...

That's very 'entry' level by the way. That's not a high-end model, but a low-end model for that type of application.

This one is over budget ($3,000), but I figured I would drop it here as a ultra-short throw 1080p laser model which can actually achieve over 3,000 lumens.

It is size limited at 144" though, which...

The 5030 has enough lens shift, with the lens on center, so that the lens can be up to 50% above the top of your screen.

Stereo audio should be required.
Surround sound should be an option.
