    I'm at the point in my HT construction that I need to select a screen. I've read through the HT primer and I have an idea of what I need but I don't want to mess this purchase up. Ok, I currently have an Infocus X1 projector it can be mounted 13-14' away from the screen. I will be watching a combination of movies and TV on this screen so it needs to work for 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios. According to the projector calculater a 60 tall by 80 wide screen would suffice for 16:9 and 4:3, does that sound right? Next the screen material, I have no idea, glass beaded, matte white, gray? And lastly I want an electric roll down screen. I was looking at the Draper Silhouette 60x80, would this fit my needs? Any opinions on it?

    Thanks

    Ron
