Did you mount the screen with anchors or are they into a joist? I'm trying to conquer a similar install. I tried anchors last week, but, one snapped as I tried to drill it in... I was just too tired to keep going.

I've got the same deal, pull down over a 50" plasma. Looks great!

Hey "mayhem13"

Cool setup, best of both worlds. Thanks for sharing !

Nice twin cabinets, where did you purhcase them ? Will an IR remote signal penetrate the glass OK ?

What is your projector ?

I used the scissor style of anchors and matched up with hooks of the same thread pitch, some fender washers and nuts-worked like a charm. The nice thing about those anchors is they spead open inside the open cavity between the studs and have more surface area for better load rating...about 60 lbs each....since i'll be tugging on the screen to get it down better to be safe.
As for the Cabinets they're from Ikea believe it or not. I use high strenght construction adhesive whenever i put Ikea stuff together. You won't believe how much it helps keep that pressboard stuff together. The IR remote works flawlessly through the frosted glass.
Thanks for the comments. Oh by the way the projector is a Mitsu HC1500. At 13ft viewing distance 720p is spectacular in film mode !!!!
