Hi everybody, I asked this question in another thread as well, but I didn't get a whole lot of feedback (hmm, maybe Christmas has something to do with it... ), so that's why I'm dedicating a separate thread to the issue... I'm pretty much set for my ht. I ordered a Panny 900, got myself a nice framework, and also a piece of blackout cloth for the screen itself. However, there are two sides (literally and figuratively) to this screen, a white and a gray one. I can make my room very dark, only my walls are (still) white. So, I'm somewhat leaning toward the gray. However, in the (near) future I might paint my walls black, so the white would be better (or not?). So, my first question is: is it better to have a gray screen in a fully dark environment or a white screen in a not completely dark environment? Furthermore, the sides do not have the same texture. The gray side is more smooth, will the white side is (consequently) more rugged/rough looking. Which would be better? Thanks for any advice you could give me... Regards, Bart.
