I am finishing up the home theater and trying to figure out the best way to mount my projector screen. On the wall is a LCD Samsung, that with mount, sticks out about 5". The ceiling is vaulted and sloped so the projector screen has to be wall mounted. The screen is a Da-Lite Model B, 106" 16x9 with wall mount and hanging brackets. Because I have to extend the screen away from the wall by about 6 inches to clear the TV, I am thinking about building some kind of wood blocking behind as a spacer and a casing around the screen roll using 1x4 and crown molding to match the room. Before I dive into the project, just wanted to see if you guys have come across this and what kind of solutions have worked well for you.


Thanks.

Eric

Have you thought about using a curtain balance. May work if what you want is to cover the screen case housing???

We are about to move next month and I am going to have the same setup. My flat panel with extend 5 inches from the wall. I am going to build a shelf that will mount to the wall above the tv. If you envision a boxed style shelf except the bottom will be open. I am going to recess the screen case inside so it will not be visible. When we are not using the screen, it will be completely hidden - the front of the shelf blocking it from view. The shelf will be made out of basic boards (poplar or something similar). However, I will add moldings to dress it up (without going over the top) and will stain it to compliment the dark hard wood floors.


I just ordered a 2.8 high power model C yesterday with additional drop to account for the shelf's front (which will be about 8" from top to bottom).


I am going from a dedicated room to a living room setup so I needed something that looks nice but is still very practical. Our living room sounds very similar to yours: vaulted ceilings and retractable screen which drops down in front of the tv.


I plan on posting pictures after I have everything setup

The living room setting is a serious design factor. The only way the wife will let me pull this off is if it looks good when rolled up and blends in with the room. I think the window cornice or valance/balance would be good. I think I will probably end up making a similar shelf box, and then attach matching crown molding. I will let you know how it turns out. Daniel, if you finish your project would love to see pictures.


Thanks,

Eric
