Alright guys... I found a leak in my trailer that resulted in having to replace a wall and an apple tree fell in the yard that I had to cut up so other than talking I've kind of been mia…. sorry about that.  Anyway I played with the projector a week or so ago and took these pics of Mr. Driller, and one of the Santa vids one with the lights off and another with a single lamp turned on.  I ironed the "screen" slightly but the folds aren't fully removed.... I might try again if I get time.

For the price and what it is, I'm pretty impressed.  I really only have two complaints..... First off the IR sensor for the remote is in the back of the unit, which is pretty inconvenient if you want to put it at the back of the room.  Secondly it's lightweight and the adjustments are fiddly and loose, so you need a rigid mount to really use it perfectly adjusted. 

I noticed that low cost projectors were in some black Friday ads.... oh well.

Could you place a small mirror behind the projector to aid in the IR control? Also, you can get a wireless IR extender that has a transmitter that the control shoots at, and a receiver, that mimics the IR to the projector (TV, whatever). Place the transmitter under your screen and the receiver behind the projector.
