Settings to create short throw rear

I have done simple setting changes to turn my projector into a rear projector. However, I want to use it on the back of a stage projecting onto a rear proj. screen only about 8 feet in front of my PowerLite. Are there settings I can change to make it project large onto this 6'x8' screen?

THis is a very short throw even for a "short throw" lens. I would verify that this is the proper lens by its numbers and verify what you should be seeing by its tech specs (focal distance./image size to be expected)

I have the mp771 model. My set up: 2 benq mp771 and 1 mitsubishi ew223 short throw. The 1st mp771 is the left projector, the 2nd is the mitsubishi (center) and the other mp771 is the right projector all...

Swap the two MP771s over and see if the fault lies with the projector or not. If the problem image swaps over then your two projectors are behaving differently. Perhaps a factory reset might help.

I'd say that it is more likely that the problem lies with your graphics card settings rather than the projector. Projectors, in general, have a native resolution. Most of them will accept non-native resolutions and interpret them to fit, but the actual resolution of the projector can't change. Triple Heads to Go are quite tricky to setup. You should check the TH2G manual and see that the screen resolution which you are attempting to use is supported, the analog versions are quite particular.

Adjust your graphics card settings and see if that helps (This is where you will find the solution!). You need to compare possible settings with those of the TH2G and the projectors (The projectors get 1/3 if the TH2G accepts and splits the signal properly). You should be able to view the actual projector input settings to see how they compare to what you expect.
Start at the lowest 12x3 screen resolution that the TH2G will accept and see if that helps. Make sure refresh rates are set to match too.
It can be a fiddly process, however once you find the correct settings then it should all work great for you.

Menu flipped on screen

Hi Andy!

Yepp, you can do that, each and one of your projectors have separete settings. So you can run one hanging from the roof and the other one standing on a table if you want. How the picture is showing depends on how you set up the the settings in the specific projector. The the signal that comes to the projectors are always the same, its only the settings on the projector that can change that.

Good luck

How do I make my projector image "square"?

i Believe you need to go into the projectors settings and adjust what is called the keystone, this changes the tilt effect that the projector throws, just keep messing with that setting until you get it how you like it.
