Thanks for that information. I really appreciate it. My screen is actually not going on a wall, but in an archway. I have no choice but to use a pulldown screen. I also have the projector all the way against the wall, so there is no moving it back. Given the situation, would you suggest I just use a white screen? I’m not sure, but I think I would rather deal with a bit of loss in the blacks in exchange for a picture that looks smooth and film like versus one that has hotspots and sparkles.
Will an alr screen such as this Elunevision Aurora ALR cause these problems? (Sorry I can’t post links as a new member)
Also, what about just a matte gray screen? I’ve seen a few that are .8 gain. I’m wondering, because I have a fairly bright projector (5040UB) on a smallish screen if that might be a way to get a bit darker darks and still have a good smooth picture.
Thanks again for the insights.
