Borrowing the title from a ginormous Avs subforum (kinda)... I have been following a thread (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1174153)over there for a bit and finally it snapped to try, and found something like the gray material... my Blacks have really improved, will have to tweak my settings some but... i stretched this over a a Melamine type sheet and am using clothes pins to keep taut while I play with... (have been running the gamut of HD choices since putting up ;)BD, DirecTv, Dish and HD DVD)

Lets see some photo's. This sound like a very interesting idea. I would also be interested in trying as i really don't like the look of the pull down screen in my theater room.

3 quick shots... and yes I need to level the screen ;)

What is the difference between the second two with Vick in the photo? One looks pretty good and the other seems pretty washed out.

The washed out one had the lights on...

What is your opinion compared to your other screen?

Mixed... will have to take it off to compare and move to my Bedroom to try as 99" screen tonight... Better Blacks no SDE but not as sharp either...

Did you put anything behind it? I was reading that some did a gray on white or a white on black screen.

It is over a sheet of melamine, if I stay with this I'll stretch it as it is not that taut...$21 at the local fabric store...

What is the fabric? Does light shine thru it? It looks tan on my monitor.
