    For those of you who may wish to know the Dulux equivalent of the Kodak Grey Card, the number to ask for is:

    6000N (No Name)

    I just sent off a portion of a Kodak Grey card for colour matching, and that is the equivalent they sent back, complete with matching colour sample on a small piece of paper. You have to get it mixed at one of their Dulux mixing machines. They'll even mix you a test sample.

    Paul - this paint isn't the equivalent of a Grayhawk, it's a good grey to use to paint the walls etc so that any light that reflects from the screen, to the (grey) walls and back onto the screen isn't of any particular colour.

    It's meant to be reasonably light so that the room won't be too dark, but is minimaly reflective - a compromise from black walls so you don't get a 'dungeon' look. :)

    HTH

    Gary.
