Dominic, do you happen to still have the photo of your issue?
I pulled my screen off the wall, flipped it over, and leaned it as tight to the wall as possible to mimic the effect of re-stapling and reversing the fabric. I’m pretty sure I used the right side (although they weren’t labeled) as silver ticket told me to use the outside of the roll facing the projector, which I did.
Flipping the screen didn’t seem to have any effect.
Interestingly, when I tested today with samples of Carl’s white, the original 1.0silver ticket white, and Seymour glacier white, only the original silver ticket and GW managed to avoid the issue I’m seeing.
Basically, regardless of screen area, any really bright uniform part of the image kind of sparkles in such a way that you find yourself seeing the screen through the image.
I noticed that if I zoom out so that I’m overshooting more onto the velvet border of my screen the image diminishes considerably.
Is there an optimal range for throw with a projector (ie. Given a choice, do people want to be as close as possible, as far as possible or somewhere in the middle?) I’m weighing trying to remount the projector a couple of inches farther back inside my hushbox to see if that has an effect, but it’d be a real pain to do, so I’d rather avoid it if it seems unlikely to help.
