[New member, first post in forum] I have been using a projector for my home theater system for several years now, and am due upgrading to a new projector. My system is fairly automated, and I always think about innovative ideas to add new capabilities to my system. Lately, I have been thinking about the possibility of setting the projector to remember two different screen sizes (zoom positions). The idea is to have a smaller projection area when previews are playing, and then make it bigger when the movie begins. Obviously, the first requirement is to choose a projector with motorized zoom. I need some suggestions/answers to some questions about the whole idea: Does any projector have settings to remember two different zoom positions to switch between them with one click? A crude way to do this of course is to send the zoom IR signal (using remote or automation) repeatedly, but I was wondering if there was a nicer way. Does zooming in and out everyday affect wear and tear? Of course it does, but what I mean to ask is - if the zoom mechanisms of projectors are not meant to handle daily operation. Is there any other way to achieve this effect without using zoom? I know I can manipulate the screen size in software, but I use a dark room for my projector, and you can see the actual projection size if you artificially make the image size smaller in software.
