    Hi Roy,

    Sure. Remote controlled motorized drape masking system on a budget:

    Components used:
    1. Motorized Drape Controller

    2. IR X10 Command Console
    http://www.smarthome.com/4040.html

    3. X10 Appliance Module
    http://www.smarthome.com/2001.html

    4. Sony RM-AV3100 Remote

    5. DIY Screen/Drape mount/frame to support drape track.

    Connect drape track string to Drape Controller/motor. Plug controller/motor into appliance module. Plug IR X10 Command console into wall. Program RM-AV3100 to control X10 devices and then create a macro to turn drape motor on/off. Preset drape motor so that at close, 4:3 masking is applied and at open, 16:9 masking is applied. I programmed 4:3 and 16:9 control buttons on the Sony remote....at the press of a button, I can set either 16:9 or 4:3 vertical masking....

    Regards,
    Shane
