it's been a long time sine I have posed a question here but here goes. I have searched this forum a bit un-successfully and can't find the answer to this question. I assumed I wouldn't have been the first in this situation but who knows. lol i aplogize for the long wordyness bu like said, It's been a while since I have been here.
Quick question is What screen material is best used with a single bulb projector?
Long Story if you have time:-)
I had a CRT front projection shooting to a Da-Lite Cinema vision screen. If I remember correctly, I needed high gain due to low light output of CRT Projector. CRT projector died about 10 months ago.
Now using an Hitachi UltraVision digital entertainment projector. Pj-Tx-100. it's a pretty good 3-chip lcd projector that i got pretty cheap. Obviously there was a different throw distance but once installed, It doesn't look too bad.
I noticed hot spotting as soon as i fired it up. I assume, it is do to screen material with high gain for CRT. So the question I want to ask is this as stated above,...
What screen material is best used with a single bulb projector?
I am toying with the idea of moving my theater out of the basement and up into our living room. Less light control and thinking motorized screen recessed in the ceiling in front of fireplace. Two big windows on each side of the fire place is where I plan to place my two Martin Logan Ascents. The Martin Logan Theater Center Channel will sit in front of the fire place. Abyss Sub placement to be determined as well as B&W surrounds.
I am open to any suggestion you may have toward screen replacement. Thanks in advanced!
