I used cardboard + velvet + tape+ staples + Velcro to attached them to my drop down screen for easy removable.
All this costs $18 in Canada so I would assume the states would be much cheaper to do.
I did the same.I was horrified by the gray bars,when I first install my 1080ST.After creating the masks I couldn't believe the difference.
Watching it on 120" 16-9 white screen.
Does anyone try to connect Intel NUC D54250WYK with this projector?
I have an issue with connecting NUC with Benq w1070 projector via HDMI cable (v1.4).
When I connect them with HDMI cable the image on screen is in green color. At the same time, projector's menu is in normal colors. Here is a links with photos of "green screen":
I have two Intel NUC D54250WYK and same issue on both devices...
Recently I read about such problems and now I think that this is handshake or HDCP problem... That means, it is hardware problem and it could be solved with NUC bios or projector firmware update...
Or some good advice from forum member =) Support of Intel and Benq keep silence till now.
So which is it? Zoom all the way in and scoot the projector closer, or zoom all the out and move the projector away? Sorry, I am just planning on mounting it tomorrow and I don't want to redo it!
I agree with vidkidd, the best focused image I got was max zoom (biggest picture) and shorter throw. Keep in mind that if your screen is smaller than 110" or so this is getting very bright to use in a totally light controlled room. Max zoom also gives you the most lumens and decreased contrast. I find the black bars on top and bottom of a 2d movie to be grey enough to be annoying with max zoom on a 120" screen in total darkness, even on eco mode.
Also I found the black bars just fine if I moved the projector back so I was using about 3/4 zoom for a 120" screen. The picture was still quite focused. FYI this is only a difference of 7" of throw. However I ended up moving it closer with max zoom because I need the extra lumens for 3d.
