Anyone know where I can get a cinetension2 110" screen? I googled it, but didn't find any dealers I am familiar with, and I want to get it from a reputable source. Amazon/Proj People/visual Apex all carry the 106" and the 120"
Trying to squeeze every bit of screen size for my room. 120 won't fit.
okay, found the 110 screen. I have another question- anyone know how to wire the 12V trigger on elite screens? The 12 trigger from my projector is a 3.5 mm mini-jack, the screen apparently uses an RJ45 port. Anyone tried to wire this kind of connection up before?
Did a bit more research. If you do a google search for Elite ZSP-TR01 you will see the remote trigger product. It's really just a version of the RF remote with a wire that connects to a trigger, be it on a projector or whatever. Interesting approach that does not require any additional attachments to the screen.
I'm looking for some suggestions. I have room on my wall for a 110" screen, so I was thinking about going w/ the the Ezframe. Is it worth $90 more over a 106" Visual Apex screen? They both seem nice, just wondering if it is worth it to go to the 110". Please help!!! PS- I have an ceiling mounted Epson 8100 w/ some ambient light.
That happened to me once but hasn't been an issue since. Pressing down arrow on my Oppo remote once brought the screen down as well, but hasn't happened again. I looked through the AE4000 guide but could not find a way to choose a different remote set...
I just installed my epson 6500 and I also went with the elite 120 16:9. I have my projector around 12.5 feet away and it looks awesome!!!!. This is my first projector and i can't believe how great it looks! It even looks good with the lights on. Good Luck!
Can someone explain something to me. When I type in Espon 6500 as above into the projection calculator on elitescreens/projectorcentral's websites, at a 12.5 throw, it says the screen diagonal is 59". How does one then fill a 120 16:9 screen?
Installed my Cinetension2 106" screen a couple days ago. When i lowered the screen the tension strings were, well not tensioned. So i pulled the knob and tensioned them on both sides. Now if i look at the screen the white area has no waves. The black border on the sides though, is a bit curved to the inside (towards me when i am looking at the screen).
Is this normal? When do u know you have applied enough tension? EliteScreens specifically warns about applying to much tension and losing your warranty!!
Looking to order an Elite screen soon, looking at the Spectrum at 100" I will be using a Panasonic PT-AE4000 projector. It it likely to be a temporary screen at least for the next 6 months. Is there anything thing else that can compete around that price range?
On another note,
my 106" Cinetension2 drops like 0.5 inches lower on the right side. the casing is level (as checked by a bubble level). Is there anything to be done? I know i can return it, but it is such a hassle to get it down, pack it, ship it, etc....
i have a Cinetension2. but from what i've heard from more than one user on this forum, non-tensioned screens tend to have waves almost always.
compared to a non tension screen, are possible waves on a tension screen less in number, frequent or less noticeable. I mean if the waves can be just as bad as a normal electric screen the tension mechanism is useless.
Does anybody have an electric elite screen other than the tension screen, are there lines, or waves on the screen? If so how long did it take for them to show?
I have a 100" VMAX. I bought it back in 2005. It has developed some waves and the black edge border is fraying. Been a good screen, I don't think there's anyway to avoid the waves over time on a non-tensioned screen. Motor has worked great. Picture has always been good,, no complaints, but this has been my only screen.
The main reason I was on this thread was because I'm considering replacing it with a 106" tensioned screen.
I ordered a vmax2 100", but then quickly changed my order to the Home2 version. I had not looked closely at it before, but it has a fiberglass backed screen which is supposed to keep it flatter. It also has a better motor and floating mounts. So I hope this will stay flatter then the vmax2.
Anyone else have experience with the Home2 series?
I'm having problems with my cinetension 2. the first came with a about an inch of uneveness- the right side is higher than the left. It didn't hang straight and the tension tabs curl backwards on the right.
so they ship me a replacement, nice and straight, but the motor sounds like it's flopping around with each rotation. one good clunk per rotation of the bar.
now they want me to swap the motors between the two units.
the screen itself is nice and flat, and the image is bright.
