I have 2 3D displays in my house, one is the Epson 5010 which is IR, the other is Samsung's Smart TV, which outputs RF. I consider the Monster Vision glasses total crap. The power buttons on all 6 sets I own have pretty much failed, and they don't hold a charge. The Samsung glasses, however, work GREAT on my Samsung TV and they're lightweight and pretty much kick ass. I'd love to use them on the Epson projector, but it outputs IR. The Monster Vision glasses, however, use an infrared-to-IR transmitter.

here's the questions:
1. Can I use ANY other glasses on the MonsterVision RF transmitter? Should I be able to use the Samsung ones? If not the Samsung, what are some good glasses that aren't shite like the MV glasses?
2. If I can't use other glasses, are there any other IR-to-RF converters that I can use on my Epson 5010 that will allow me to use the Samsung glasses?
3. If #1 and #2 can't be done, what are some good lightweight IR-based 3D glasses these days? I assume "all IR is the same" but that "many" RF's are different. Is this basically true?

thanks

EchoStar/optoma RF glasses should work fine with the Monster emitter. They are a second generation of your old monsters and the power problems have been fixed. They won't work with your Samsung that I think is blue tooth not the bitcaldren rf of the monsters.

Smart enough to know better, to old to care

MonsterVision glasses made me so gd angry, I don't want to try out EchoStar/Optomas yet, unless they're a last resort. Is there any other RF's besides all the ones MonsterVision was based off of?
Supposing Samsung's are RF/Bluetooth, I suppose there's no dongle/converter that will allow me to use them on an IR projector, right? Seems that would be an easy dongle to make, if somebody took the time.

Yep. Samsung is Bluetooth. The Bit Cauldron-sourced glasses (Monster, VIP, Optoma, EStar) are all Zigbee RF, which is not compatible with Bluetooth.

XpanD may have what you need. Their B104LX1 model has both Universal IR and RF.
