Well, it has been quite a while. I don't know if this old thread can even be bumped. We will see....
My Panasonic AE1000U has been giving me fits lately, so I purchased a Panasonic AE4000U which should be here on Monday. (Of course I found a youtube video on how to fix my AE1000U about an hour after making my purchase of the 4000U... but that is a whole other story.)
Anyway, with the new projector there is a lens memory feature which I can use to view 2.39:1 images using the "zoom technique". So, I am probably going to be making some changes to the room including a new screen with a masking system.
I have been out of touch with this forum for a few years, so I am wondering what people are using for screen material now days. My last screen was made from SmX material when it was available to the DIY crowd. I guess I need to go over to the DIY screen section and take a look around. Anyway, some new pictures to follow.
