|Akatsushi||I was able to get them to fix it for free through warranty. I had to pay for shipping though *around $23*. The invoice does show used, but they did fix it. YMMV because when I called to ask about the repair, they wouldn't tell me if the warranty covered it or not. They said to just send it in, and they would contact me back saying if i had to pay or not for the repair.|

|Akatsushi||I started to have problems with this projector.. There would be a lot of white dots on the screen. I know it's not dust because I cleaned it off. I tried to call casio and ask them what's wrong, but they just want me to send it in and who knows how much that'll cost to repair. I did search online and a few mentioned that it had something to do with the DMD chip failing. Any idea how I can get this fixed for cheap? Or if I can do it myself.|

Does anyone know how to setup this projector for 16:9 screen? I have connected it to my HTPC but with native 1024 x 768 resolution it goes out of my screen (82 inch x 45 inch = 92 inch diagonal).
Should I manual set the resolution to 1024 x 575 to get perfect fit?

4x8 Foam Insulation Screen
I know this thread is getting old and all of us are probably enjoying the projector but I wanted to post some pictures and details of the 4ft x 8ft insulation screen for those looking for a cheap quick screen.
I started with the pink 1" thick foam insulation. I used an eggshell white paint and applied 3 coats. The first picture is after just one coat. The latex paint covered and worked well on the insulation. The guys at Home Depot said this is actually the foam they use to make various painted signs around the store.
Then I went to Joann Fabric and picked up 2.5" black ribbon. 25 yds of this stuff was around $2.50 so it's dirt cheap and I also got some adhesive tape while I was there. Command strips hold this thing up it's so light and it's temporarily mounted to the ceiling with clamps.
The projector mount is a quick/easy/cheap solution with 1/4" sheet of MDF attached to the projector and a 2x6 in the ceiling beams (will be painted black but I was in a hurry to watch movies). Then it's connected with 1" black steel plumbing parts. The projector is easily leveled and adjusted with wing nuts and held in place with the help of compression springs.
I had the paint laying around along with the wood so all together the total for mount and screen was about $30. That brings the grand total of projector, screen and mount to $260. Definitely a VERY slick deal!
Take a look at the pictures and feel free to ask any questions.

Bought the cheapest ceiling mount I could find on Ebay
This worked pretty good and comes with the right size screws for the Casio. I hacksawed the "arms" down so they wouldn't stick out but that wouldn't really be necessary.
