The sad thing is these scenes are not dark at all.
I would like to go with the starter pack but i think the wife would give me more than the look if i spend more money on this 3D thing. especially when she sees the rainbow effect on the sides of the screen.
I have experimented to try and figure out the cause of the rainbow effect. I believe it is the interaction of the x102 with the DLP process. I've noted that the rainbow doesn't move on screen when you move closer to the TV and if you get close enough, far too close to actually watch TV, the rainbow is outside your field of view. So, it appears the rainbow shows up at a specific place on the screen which leads me to believe it is partially the DLP process to blame.
Also, the rainbow shows up anytime the glasses are on, regardless of source. Blocking the DLP-link receiver for a few minutes to force the glasses off seemed to cause the rainbow to gradually fade rather than disappear immediately, so I think it is more a result of the liquid crystal lens coupled with the DLP process rather than the shuttering action itself. I'm hoping that liquid crystal lenses of other glasses do not produce this effect as it is a major distraction.
Does anyone with non-DLP link shutter glasses see a prism/rainbow effect?
dintkin and bcterp, which DLP set do you have and which x102 do you have? the rainbow may be dependent upon either or both models. I have the Mits C9 and the SUD.
Regarding the glasses losing sync, one day the grand canyon raft scene works fine, the next day it loses sync. I've tried to reproduce conditions to force loss of sync on the good days and can't make it happen. Also, I've notced that the glasses maintain sync for about 5-6 seconds after losing the DLP-Link signal. So the initial scene causing the glasses to lose sync is likely a few seconds before sync is lost during the raft scene, possibly the reverse fly-over scene which is actually a fairly bright scene. Can a screen that is too bright, or at least too bright in certain areas of the screen, possibly interfere with dlp-link sync?
