    Looks good! What screen you using? And did you alter the NR/Sharpness settings? At 75" I put the sharpness at the highest setting (there are 5) but my digital cable is nothing special to begin with.

    Todd:

    I wonder what this set would look like on a bare white wall with a black border around it. That should make it pop off the wall. I have found that using a 2 inch molding with black felt makes for a much better border than even flat black paint as even that has some reflectivity to it.

    Putting a black border around your screen makes all the difference in the world in making the image really pop. I have often thought it would be cool to paint a bare wall with goo paint and then put the border up. It should make for a really nice screen.

    I assume you guys are doing DIY solutions.. have you decided on one yet? I was gonna do an 80" sheet of Parkland Plastics, put down some shiny primer, then 2 coats of Behr Silverscreen but I saw this thread with these images in it:

    SD = Super Deluxe formula | W = White | G = Gray

    His results had me rethinking my formula until I saw what kind of work has to go into that type of screen. A lot more ingredients for one thing.
