Have you had this problem of light leaking onto the screen..or does the lens help to block this off.?
In the my case, the light leak is up higher than the screen, close to the ceiling. It is light coming out the exhaust vent.

Don't let the problems I have high lighted put you off. The projector is still very very good, but I have identified and reported the problems and thought I would share them here...

Probably your best bet would be China..I had the name of a lens manufacturer in China who would make up any type of lens..and in relatively small quantities..I'll see if I can dig it up..
That would be very good if you could Prof, thanks...

Actually it's the same for me...The player stays on WIDE all the time and I just have to press 4 x 3 on the projector remote to go to 16:9..
Yes, that is it

Re: 16:9 Screen Vs. 2.37:1 CIH Screen

BTW..I have a BenQ W5000 and am looking a getting or making a lens. I've heard good things about these projectors and was suaded over the Sony's, which I could get cheaper, for this one. I have a Screen Innovations Reference 92" 16:9 screen new in the box but am going to sell it and make a 110" 2:35:1 screen. I think in white? 1.0 gain? I'm not sure what my throw will be but I will probably hang the screen then move the projector back until I get the height correct on the v stretch mode and put it there on the ceiling. Will I need the anamorphic lens in place first before I do that? Might be hard to do? I might have to have two people hep me to do that?

Here in the first pic is my DIY 16:9 painted screen and the second is DIY 2:39 painted screen. You can see the size difference between the steinman audio center and my DIY center in the second pic with my DIY sub.

I hadn't realised that it was a 130" screen..That's quite a big screen and it sounds like you did it all for a very low price..Well done
