    I'm about to take the plunge and buy a Sanyo z2 and will be getting an ikea black out screen which will be 200 cm wide for the screen.
    The problem is I can't go any bigger than that for the screen and the projector will have to sit 4.8 metres away and I don't think I'll be able to downsize the picture enough!
    Any ideas?

    You will not get an image of 2 metres wide from 2.4 times back from the Z2 as it is a relatively short throw. If you really want the Z2 then the only options are to either go for a larger screen or to place the projector closer to the screen.
