I am thinking of building a fixed frame screen but ceiling mounting it as I have a large window in the area I need to put the screen .
The reason being I have read on this and the AVS forum that ceiling mounted pull down or electric screen can suffer from sagging and wrinkles, which a more expensive tensioned screen would help but budjet wont allow this.
I've recently bought a BD808s and was thinking of an 8' wide screen.
Can anyone see any problems with this? Is it usually the case for the pull down/electric screens to exhibit this flaw?

Any help appreciated before I spend any cash?

Thanks
Dean.

Not sure if I would see any problems doing what Im thinking of.
Basically, one side will be the screen for the CRT, the other would I was thinking of a nice 8'x4.5' wife friendly picture which can hang on a side wall when not in use....ie a double sided thing.

Can anyone tell me what type of wood would be good for the frame, I was thinking of using blackout material for the screen which a lot of people seem to use with good results....also this is a cheap option which the missus wouldn't castrate me for (although she nearly did when she saw the size of the 808!)

Thanks in advance,
Dean
