Hoping for some quick help. Just hung my 106" Elite Spectrum and this is as much of the screen I can seem to fill with my Epson 8100. Does this look right? I know my screen is 16:10, not 16:9, but this seems to be leaving a lot of real-estate on the table.

Noob mistake here. I should have looked at the viewing dimensions before buying. Since buy.com won't take back the product. Does anyone have a slick solution for converting into a 100' screen? Maybe I should take this into the DIY.

Adjust the image so it is lined up with the top of the screen and make a mask from light weight foam or gator board wrapped in back velvet to cover the blank area where not images is displayed. I don't know if this is a fixed frame or pull down, but if fixed you could center the image and make a small mask for top and bottom to even out the look.. be creative!

Confused on what you mean by viewing dimensions. Does this have to do with the screen or the projector? I'm wanting to make sure I don't make the same "noob" mistake when ordering a screen myself

He probably bought a 16:10 screen it looks like....If you get a 16:9 ratio screen from almost all screen manufactures, the ratio/dimensions of the 16:9 are very close, if not the same across the board. Do you think you might want to get a 2.35:1 screen? I ask because I made one for myself and I'm NEVER going back

Yep, I made the mistake of not checking out the viewing dimensions. You should be fine if you verify it's 16:9. I rolled the dice on a 16:10 and regret it now.


I did however get some good advice from this forum on how to correct. I'm just taking my time to get to it.
