Unless it was super cheap, I would just use the material in my manual. I like the size its at.
The info I gleaned was from other hobbyists, specifically at AVS.
Thanks so much for the offer, and tips.
Since its pliable, I'd like to revisist a question I had earlier. Once the fabric suffered from "serious waves", is it too late already to flatten out, and attach to a fixed screen?
There is sort of a very large upright V in the screen. It disappears naturally. Well it disappears 99.99% of the time. I've asked several other viewers if they've ever noticed it, and the response has universally been no.
I've noticed it in a couple of scenes in No Country for Old Men, the fleeting scene in Walle when the desolated BnL shopping area is panned over, when Remy the rat discovers he is in Paris.
OTOH, for most movies, there is nothing discernable at all for me. The waving, when it does occur, is very subtle, even at my screen size. Terrible as it sounds, it is a pretty miniscule compromise for the PQ I get, and especially considering the size I get w/ PJ selected and low cost.
If this is as bad it gets, I'm happy as a plum. I'm just trying think long term.
I checked and you can turn the traffic detour feature off on my GPS.
According to Da-lite, the high power fabric should not wrinkle more over time. In fact, they say it's a more pliable fabric than some others they sell and should be less likely to get waves over time. If you decide you want some cut to size fabric, there's a way to get around the screwy pricing. Should cost about 60% less than you may have been quoted plus about 85.00 shipping. If you decide you want to go that route, e-mail me and I'll get you the code number you need to give to the Projector Central guys. It's not their fault as the info cannot be found in the price list. On your screen, the fabric is stamped into a metal roller and you will have to cut around the triangular stamped areas to remove it. Doesn't sound like the cuts will need to be very big and it's certainly doable. There are no instruction available from Da-lite.
