    Try the screens forum for building advice - depending on your budget you can work with black out material or proper screen material. I used a 2"x1" mitred frame with a central brace and stretched the fabric from an IKEA Tupplar blackout blind across it with drawing pins. Works fine and I can't see I'll be wanting anything fancier in my current house.

    This was an interesting thread on the LCD/DLP forum

    Screen info

    Pretty much telling you what gain to use for a LCD or a DLP screen and what not to use as a screen.

    I've bought an factory 2nd screen from ebay which I'm going to butcher to build a fixed screen when I get my dedicated HC room started.
