Re: painting wall/screen question

You're welcome. Maybe if you post a photo of it someone on here will know what it is. Probably not me, but somebody might.

Re: painting wall/screen question

Texturing will definitely affect picture quality... the smoother the surface, the better. Blurring is more likely either a processing issue, or an optical issue with the projector itself, but something like the orange-peel texture of a residential interior wall will create tiny shadows where there aren't supposed to be any (especially at the edges of the screen) and will also reflect light back at silly angles instead of where it's supposed to go. The net effect is a degraded image.

Check out this article from Projector Central: http://www.projectorcentral.com/pain...creen_$100.htm
The short version is you can buy an un-tinted base white paint and get a perfectly acceptable screen. It also describes a reliable procedure for painting the wall so you get good results, not just from the paint itself, but so that you end up with nice clean lines and surfaces.
