Yes. Move the projector to the dead center (horizontally) of the screen. Mount it so that there is as little tilting as possible as this reduces the degree of keystone correction.
I got my projector in the center, and it is moundted on the ceiling and is tilting up about 5 degrees or so. This requires me a slight keystone correction, but X1 does a great job at this. My image is perfectly rectangular.
This could be what is messing some of you up. The lens on the X1 is not in the exact center of the projector. It is offset by 65mm (2.56 inches). It is of course in the FAQ . But, well, you know, what isn't in the FAQ? I dunno. I frankly found that the only way to get it perfect was to hang the projector pretty darn close to where I thought it belonged and then project a blank screen on the wall. Orient the projector along every axis until the rectangle is true. But, well, that's in the FAQ too.
That darn technut takes all the fun out of being helpful.
