Yes, 125" diag, 16:9

Can't recall the gain. This was a DIY I built back in 2008 using 1" x 3" poplar frame and black velvet covering the frame.

Our next screen will be a ceiling mount, recessed, tab tension, probably in the same size range.

Sounds like it may be blackout cloth or something similar. Gain is most likely between 0.9 and 1.0. What sports do you watch?

NFL mostly. NHL on occasion.

Movies, TV, Xbox 360, PS3 mostly.

Will be getting Xbox One with Halo 5 soon, but will be out of this house and into the next beginning of November. Have to decide on projector soon.

Since we rep several brands of projectors, manufacturers don't like it when we recommend one manufacturer over another in an open forum. Shoot me a PM or email and then I can talk freely. Your sports, hockey and gaming narrow down the list of projectors that I would consider.
