Any suggestions on a screen? I notice that Stewart makes their Automatic Vertical Screen and Da-Lite makes their Deluxe Insta-Theater in 4:3 video format only. Not to be goofy about it, but if I'm screening 720P at 16:9 I hate the idea of having blank white screen sandwiching the image. It's not like having black letterboxing.

BTW Heath, I moved here from Tampa. We just started "winter" here in the Bay Area. That means cold rain for three months. Enjoy Palm Beach and smile when you think about our traffic, real estate prices, rainy winter and new governor. ;-)

It depends whether or not you want a screen that electronically drops down or you want it permanently mounted. Stewart has many many custom options as does Da Lite. You could have it 16:9 with a 4:3 matte, so you always have black borders no matter what. I would recommend only a 16:9 screen, and get a 4:3 matte if you plan to watch regular TV on your projector.

We like the perma mounted screens because the ones that roll down tend to wrinkle occassionally. So, ours is the high contrast cinema 16:9 mounted on the wall...but it depends how much space you have and whether or not you plan on it being portable.

Since there are so many screen options, I would recommend giving the guys over at www.avsforum.com a call, their prices are extremely reasonable and they know what they are talking about. We bought our screen from them and the projector directly from the boxlight company. The guys that run the AVSforum website have their website at

If you want specific information on the latest screen technology, head over to the avsforum and look under front projector screens. In the past year, they have developed a lot of new technology in screens that allow for better viewing angles, better black levels, etc. You can often post what projector you plan to purchase and people there will recommend various screens for you. The screen you pick is extrememly important, so don't be afraid to plop down some serious money for a good one. Most people new to front projectors neglect factoring in to their decision buying a good screen. And, lastly, I would recommend picking a screen that will suffice for years to come, because most people who use front projectors end up upgrading the FP but keep the same screen.

It sucked, weather-wise, yesterday and the past few days in West Palm Beach, but today is nice, clear as a bell. Which REALLY makes me wish I had the HD10.

Have fun with the exhibitions and KEEP US INFORMED!
