Hey, gotta read all the "DIY Video Projector" stuff for 5.6" size info. They have a ongoing pool of info. They've focused in on a few specific's but, some of it is up to you to decide.
But, looks like someone just posted a formula for figuring the lens you need. Take a look at today's messages.

Slide projector will be too small for that lcd. You need 1.8" or smaller. I don't think there is a Delta lens for you to use either. I think OHP is your best route.

What kind of backlites? "Messing up", you mean washing/blurred together?

Yes, cost is about $150 and higher. But, if you can connect to your computer than you can use software that is free, to do nearly the same thing! And, more flexible. Called, "Descaler".

Now, I am awake and can answer these questions but, I am not the expert and someone else may disagree. But, at least you have a place to begin with. Anyone?...
