Yikes! I wanted to have a 100" 16:9 perf screen, because I read that going below this size will introduce moire effects due to the perforations. I absolutely cannot have the projector back more than 12 feet from the screen. What will happen?
Clouseau2, you'll have to get a smaller screen (without perforations if moire is a problem) or a projector with a shorter throw distance. Unfortunately, the Sharp is the only 16:9 DLP at the moment. More 16:9's are on their way, but they are all going to be more expensive than the Sharp.
Any other options? Is there a lens that reduces throw distance?
Both my mains and my center are going to be behind the screen, so a perf screen is a must. I can't change the distance from the projector to the screen, and according to the manual (thanks for the URL), my screen can't be wider than 84" diag. I guess I'll have to hope those moire effects won't be too bad ...
I spent a while with my diagrams, and if I hang the screen right on top of my fronts and over a desk, I can have a 100" diag 16:9 screen that is 14'1" away from the projector. I'll be sitting 12 feet away from the screen ...
However, now I'm worried the screen won't be HIGH enough!
