    Hey Guys .. can you take a look at this screen shot?

    The top right of the image is slanting down .. the bottom is fairly level.

    I know for a fact that the left side of the actual screen is 2" back from the top right of the screen. Do you think this is why it is like this?

    If I moved the left side of the screen to match the right sides length from the wall, do you think it would fix the problem or is this an issue with the position of where the projector is mounted?

    I should think so. If your screen is not flat then the image will keystone, in this case the image is getting bigger as it goes to the left as the distance between the projector lens and the screen is increasing.

    Actually I think it could be both, but it's definitely a keystone problem. Do whatever you can to make sure the screen and the PJ is perfectly alligned. It can be a real PITA job, but worth it.
