    I have been searching various web sites for a 16:9 screen with 100" diagonal which can be fixed to the wall, but I can't seem to find any. I don't want to pay ££££ for a custom made screen, and I thought this would be a fairly standard size. I plan to use it with a Panasonic AE300. Any ideas on where to look?

    Draper, OWL, Stewart, VuTec.....Or buy some material from Harkness Hall and make yourself a frame. Not sure if they all do 100" diagonal as standard but someone like VuTec will make to that size and charge for nearest larger screen.

    Thanks. The screens I've seen seem a bit pricey. Anyway, it looks like I'm going to have to have a retractable screen as I need to mount it about 2 ft away from the wall to give me the screen size I need for the throw distance I have.

    Screens measurements are usually advertised by the width measurement.

    80" seems to be fairly common which gives a 92" 16:9 diagonal (I think). I have a Da-Lite Model B 80" 16:9 from http://walterstewart.com/uk2shop.htm . It cost £212.

    It's a long time since i did pythag at school.
