Like i said it isn't an issue for me as all my content will be SBS ... so weather it does it auto or i permanently leave the dip switch settings for SBS, doesn't matter.. The 3D-XL doesn't auto detect at all, SBS has to be manually set with the SBS button and TnB doesn't work (optoma working on firmware solution) so no worries here

So you aren't using any non 3d content on this setup? When you turn on the xbox before putting the game in the 3d mode, you won't want SbS turned on. Otherwise it will be extremely difficult to navigate the menus.

Also you'll have to turn it off for any regular non-3D TV viewing or for non 3D WDTV content.

Let us know what you think when you are all set up. I have a HD70 also and would be very interested in your opinion.

hhmm.. you're right.. didn't think of that

But if i bought the 3D-XL, this would be the same problem...
So since i need to turn my DLP Link glasses on and off, i think i can handle flipping some dip switches on/off ... not ideal but acceptable

Yea, it's the same no matter what if you have an HDMI 1.3 device which is sending the content. My issue with flipping dip switches is that I would most likely mount the VIP Theater on the ceiling or using velcro on top of my projector. Just could become somewhat cumbersome to have to physically switch a small dip. I'm not sure why they didn't add an IR function and a remote to do the toggling.

Will do, of course.

I had a couple questions for those who are already using this unit:

- Where did you put it in the chain? I have a dlp projector and an lcd tv coming off an hdmi switch, which in turn is coming off my receiver. I'm primarily getting the Theatre for the pj, but would I have luck placing it before the switch in order to use it for the tv as well?

- For those using the emitter, how long is the stock sync cable? Debating whether to order an extension right off the bat...

I had no problem with putting the unit before my HDMI splitter for everything except, My Samsung BDC5900, which gave me HDCP issues, the PS3 had no trouble being split. Again a case of HDMI 1.4 vs 1.3.

The cable for the emitter is 3 or 4 feet long, I ordered this one just in case I needed it.

http://www.ultimate3dheaven.com/20diexwi6mir.html

Again I think most issues with splitters and switches will not be an issue, The unit ran perfectly thru my Older Onkyo TX-SR805 which should have caused a problem, It also ran thru my Monoprice HDX501.

Wake me when HD gets Here!

Did the emitter come with a power cable?

No, The emitter gets its power from the supplied cable that connects directly to the Vip Theatre. In the photo on the first page its the one thats connected to the emitter.

Cool, that makes things easier.

I've ordered the DIN extension, & I already have a 5v adapter for the Theatre's usb power. I'll just hook it inline before the pj, & run the extender to the emitter at the front of the room. Thanks!

Where did you order this? I haven't been able to find any US resellers.

I asked Jonathan this and he said that the only options were to send money via paypal to them for shipment next week or buy through the Canadian company for shipment the following week.

An emitter splicer? I hope this means that we could somehow have emitter signals in 2 different rooms if you are splitting the signal between two rooms.

Jonathan - please develop a really good 2D>3D add on converter for a reasonable price. I'd pay a couple of thousand dollars for something that was really good.

I preordered yesterday. This should be fascinating. It will be worth it if I can get good 3D out of my non-3D 1080p projector...

Ooh... are we making a wish list? Put me down for a bluetooth emitter! And profiles/presets in the 3d Theatre so we can automate our brightness settings for 3d!

Way to go Robert!! I'll be waiting and hoping for positive results with the Pro8100. Gotta admit I'm pretty skeptical about how well this'll work but sure hope I'm wrong. Thanks for giving it a shot!
It's supposed to be released 1st week of April, correct?

Hello,

I also ordered the vip theatre with two glasses.

I hope it will work good on my epson tw5000.

Best regards,

Hi! I'm a guy from Spain who have reserver an 3d-theatre plus two glasses for my epson tw3500 (8100 in USA) after reading your opinions...I'm very excited about this!!


I wish to know if the flicker problem with 30hz it's too noticiable/annoying while viewing 3d movies or playing 3d games...

Also, do you know if the 3d heaven ultra clear glasses will work with 3d theatre? May I need something more to get it working or it's impossible?

Thanks!!

I own a JVC RS20 and was thinking about selling it but now I ve seen this thread I m going to wait. I think my RS20 is 60Hz capable. How can 2x30Hz look ok without getting a headache?

The Ultra-Clears work with the VIP 3D-Theatre for DLP-Link, but I'd stick with the VIP glasses for an IR setup until I find out more about compatibility (I'm thinking you will have to use the IR setup with that projector, as I don't recall it being a DLP-Link model).

I will tell you something, though: at first, I liked the Ultra-Clear glasses better than the ones VIP is selling, but I now like the VIP ones better. They are a close call, and either will work fine in DLP Mode. Again, that's not exactly applicable to your setup, though.

...speaking of 3D glasses, can they (either the VIP or the Ultra-Clear ones) we worn on top of regular glasses? My 2 sons both wear prescription glasses and will need to have the 3D put on top.

It seems most people here are talking about there projectors. I have a 3 year old Samsung 1080P LCD with a 60hz refresh rate. What is the likely hood this will work well with my TV?

I'm really in the market for 3D I'm just not in a position to get a new TV right now.

Thanks, any input is appreciated as I do know to much about this 3D stuff.

How does the box handle the frame rate conversion from 24Hz (frame packed) to 30Hz per eye when it's doing the 60Hz 3D? Is it a 1:1:1:2 cadence? I would imagine that would create some pretty severe judder compared to the 2:3 cadence done from 24Hz to 60Hz.

I have the Ultra Clear IR glasses. I don't wear prescription glasses but my wife does. She tells me it's no problem and they're still comfortable.
Hope this helps.
