    You should always check the x1 faq for any x1 questions.

    In there there is a link to the infocus x1 screen calulator from the infocus sight.

    Just input the distance and it will tell you the max and min screen size.

    Also just a friendly tip, typing message in all caps is bad etiquete, you'll get more response if you dont do that.

    THE GENERAL RULE IS TO ZOOM IN ON THE SMALLEST POSSIBLE SIZE FOR A GIVEN DISTANCE SO THAT YOU USE ONLY THE CENTER OF THE LENS, BUT I DO NOT THINK IT REALLY MAKES THAT MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE

    I am sorry if I offended you Sheldon, I just wanted to point out that posting all in caps makes a post harder to read, and you'll have an easier time getting replies if you try to avoid that.

    I am sorry I didnt answer the question you asked, and I am not ragging on you, but honestly when I looked at your post I only picked up that you wanted to know the maximum image size the projector outputs.

    I usually just scan over posts and yours being all in caps made it a little more difficult to pick up on your question.

    Anyway to answer the original question, I have my screen size currently as exactly 72 in wide. Off the top of my head I dont know what the diaganol for that is. I used to put it a little bigger, but found the minimum size for me was the most ideal. Any bigger than that at my viewing distance caused more problems with dlp rainbows and headaches.

    Also if your looking to improve your x1, I just finished a project for my diy screen that I feel helped immensly. I felt the biggest drawback of the 4x3 fp, was the light spill, so I just completed removable masking for several different aspect ratios using black felt and velcro. I found this to be the biggest improvement since installing the projector itself.

    Anyway I hope you continue to enjoy your x1.
