    We discussed this type of situation when we last spoke on the phone. The advice hasn't changed...

    You can reduce the picture size on the projector without moving the projector but it will have two bad side effects:

    1 - you'll lose a little brightness from the image, so to compensate you will be tempted to increase the contrast.

    2 - Increasing the contrast will make the tubes wear faster. Eventually you will end up with a worn patch on the tube face equivalent to the reduced screen size. If ever you decide to go back to the correct screen size you will see a step in brightness where there is a difference in the tube wear.

    To get the full benefit of using a smaller screen size you really need to move the projector forward. Only this way will you see an improvement in picture brightness. If I were you I would either stay with the original screen or consider moving the projector forward. However, it is your projector so you might decide otherwise. Good luck.

    Regards
