That would be the preferred operation since your screen is native 16:9. Also, is it fair to say that right now when you watch movies you just play them without adjusting the projector? You just bring the masking in to cover the black bars?
Thanks for the quick response.
Yeah, you've hit the nail on the head. Some more info:
My projector is not ceiling mounted. It is on the top shelf of a uline wire rack. So I don't know how easily a DCR can be attached to the 885ES in this physical configuration. But I can reach the projector quite easily.
But, yes, I just add my panels when I watch widescreen content (so I'm still projecting black bars, but they're covered), and I don't adjust the projector lens shift at all (I don't use any lens memories currently). I'm a huge stickler for pixel alignment, and I know the 885ES manual says that lens memories aren't guaranteed to always re-adjust back to the exact point they were before (I've never tried this).
