I found it odd that when you run a reset of the emitter using the joystick and check the settings using the utility it says 105% duty cycle. However that seems to work the best with a DLP projector. If I try lowering it to 100% I see some color shifting when i tilt my head from the screen. If I lower it even more like 95% the colors begin to screw up. Skin tone turns orange in some scenes. The default delay and duty cycle are perfect setting for a DLP projector. I suppose lowering duty cycle you start reducing one of the colors from the color wheel which is in sync with the frame rate. Thus the colors start to shift because we are blocking part of one color. So don't change duty cycle with a DLP projector. Leave it at 105%.
I have not had to touch delay either. Factory reset and all is perfect. Although I did have to change polarity.

No, I don't remember indicating that. If for example I'm satisfied using the dongle with 1.5LED Delay and 2.5LED Duty Cycle. When I remove the transmitter and read the stored settings with the Utility, it reports that both my settings are "zero", which I know is incorrect.
Unfortunately I am shipping my transmitter back to VIP for testing, as I believe it has developed frequency shift for lack of a better term.
When trying to watch Resident Evil, made acceptable adjustments, after watching about 3 minutes all facial tones and background began color shifting.
The whole movie turned into a 3D anaglyph comic book appearance.
Went back and retuned everything to normal, sat down within minutes drifting back to garbage again. Remove glasses but the video display has none of this occurring only when wearing glasses.
So I decided no more adjustments and just watch to see what would happen long term. The video image would wander back in forth from proper settting to color distortion almost like clockwork. Gave up when one of the new glasses died in 55 minutes from fresh charge. Gads!! to put it kindly.
The transmitter operates in a consumer band somewhere in the 2.2-2.5ghz range. Garage door openers, cordless phones, security systems are also in that spectrum as well. But I don't believe that such interference was occurring to cause the above.
If the glasses and transmitter cannot maintain their sync then the adjustments become meaningless. To my knowledge I'm the only one that's had this type of transmitter problem. Although I have now received 3 defective glasses out of four.
It is odd when you read the Monstervision glasses threads you don't see anything about battery charging issues or status blinks and such. Only in our rebranded glasses made by the same entity.
