    Does anybody have a retractable screen in their media room, and if so, have you ever had any problems with it 'blowing around' from the airconditioning?

    I'm considering my options for a media room which will have two functions: TV viewing, and movie viewing. To do this, I figure I need to either buy an extremely large TV (LCD or plasma), or install a recessed retractable screen and overhead projector (my preferred option). There will be airconditioning in this room.

    Length: 6.2 meters
    Width: 4.2 meters

    The airconditioner is installed on the opposite wall to where the screen will reside. I think it will most likely have an effect on it, by blowing it around a litte, thus causing focus problems and may be even motion sickness.

    Your thoughts? Thanks for your replys.

    It shouldn't be a problem that is viewable, though it may move around ever so slightly. I know a guy who had this problem when doing lens flapping adjustments on a CRT, which if you have a digital won't really be a big deal. It might only be an issue in getting *really* tight focus, which isn't that big a priority anyway, since slight defocus is often desireable to reduce SDE visibility.
