OK, so they're not exactly PICTURES, but these should give you the general idea
I have an entertainment center with my TV, DTV Receiver, Tivo, DVD player, and stereo receiver, along with my center speaker channel and all my DVDs. In short, removing the entertainment center and projecting on the wall is not a good solution.
I'm trying to come up with an easy, affordable, and good-looking solution to putting a screen in front of the entertainment center somehow. I'd like it to be easy to put on/set up and remove, low maintenance, and long-lasting. Here's the current setup:
The entertainment center is exactly 5 feet wide, and as it turns out top to lower shelf is approximately 3.75 feet, making a perfect 4:3 area. I've come up with two solutions so far, but they each have their drawbacks...
1) Stretch a bedsheet or some other material across the face of the cabinet, and install some type of fastening device on the sides/back/top to hold it taunt, like so:
Drawbacks: Material might wrinkle in storage, might be hard to keep it taunt without "waves" in the fabric.
2) Install a screen-roll along the top of the cabinet, and pull the screen down when needed, like so:
Drawbacks: All roll-away screens I've seen have inherant" waves" in the material, (big one) remote controls don't work through screen.
I created an AVS forum account to ask all the experts here for advice. What would be a good solution, is it something I haven't even thought of yet? Also, how much would I be looking to spend? If I should use the cloth, are there any fabrics which don't wrinkle when folded/stored away?
If anyone's interested, I have an X1, and it will likely be ceiling mounted.
Thanks in advance for your help!!
