Nilk29 , the screen that I am currently using was cheap to make. Three hundred bucks plus the screen material. A blind company mounted it to a 2 inch roller for me and I have remote control. So, I have tried to go the cheaper route and it did not work . I am upgrading my projector to the JVC RS1 and what was acceptable for me before will not be with the increased picture quality. This is an attempt to make a screen with no compromises. I posted here to bounce some ideas off the guys who have done this before. One AVSer even knows how to make an optical sensor for the screen that I am making. Lots of guys with great ideas around here ! My goal here is to make a screen with parts readily available that need little modification so that anyone can copy this screen without a lot of fabrication. If the drives from Somfy work out, then this is just going to be a matter of buying the parts and putting the whole thing together. I have been bouncing ideas off one of the guys at the pipe supply company for a couple of weeks. The tubular motor company owner has also helped as best as he can. He really does not know anything about home theater but does not how to implement his motors.
