I assume you mean you have the TV mounted on the wall and you want to mount the screen on the same wall above it.
If this is true, go the the Elite site, get he manual for that screen and look at the dimensional drawing to determine how much space you have. My DaLite screen is only a couple of inched from the wall when pulled down, so you would need to check

Planar PD8150 with DC4 DMD paired with a Dalite HP 2.8 120"

It's really pretty simple. If mounting the retractable screen directly to the wall doesn't leave enough space behind the screen to clear a wall-mounted TV you simply add spacer shims of the required depth between the retractable screen mounting brackets and wall. For example, a 2x4 has an actual depth of 1.5", so mounting a short section of 2x4 between each mounting bracket and wall would add 1.5" of clearance.
