I asked this question on the 8000U thread as well, but thought I'd try here too...
I'm upgrading from a 4000U to an 8000U. Excited for the picture quality and 3D upgrade. In researching the glasses, however, I was surprised they stuck with the IR technology. I noticed a couple pages back on this thread (from March) when people were theorizing that you could add an RF transmitter to these projectors that would enable the use of the 4th gen RF glasses. Has anyone had any luck in doing this?
RF would work better in my set up, plus I don't like making the purchases of a bunch of glasses that are technically "old" technology. I swung by Best Buy last night because I wanted to see how the sizing worked out on the glasses. I walked in and the hanger for the 3rd gen IR glasses was empty and they had plenty of the 4th gen RF glasses. I asked if they had any of the IR ones and he looked in the system and said they had been marked discontinued in-store. RF only moving forward.
Not a big deal (I wasn't going to buy from BB anyway...Projector People has the IR ones in stock) but I was just curious if anyone had success converting a 7000U to RF. If I'm going to buy all my glasses from scratch, I'd much rather infest in the most recent technology!
