So this TV saga continues....
Please bear with me. I'm super pissed.
The same day I picked this (which is going to be very quickly thrown into the street), tv up I ordered from Best Buy glasses that I was told would work. Xpand 102-RF. They did not. They then gave me X102-IR. Those did not work. I was then told to get Xpand 3DG-103 which are DLP link glasses. Those are not working.
They cannot make this any more difficult. I have never, ever, ever had so many problems with home theater electronics before in my life.
These stupid glasses are supposed to "blink" when it connects.
I did some googling and came across this:
"i have Mitsubishi WD-82738 tv that built in IR emitter. just bought 4 pairs of X103. I did try to sync with one blink, then 4blinks ...6blinks, but still not get it sync!:-("
So it has a built in emitter. So do I choose "DLP Link" or "IR Emitter"?
On the phone with Mitsubishi right now and they just told me that I do NOT need the emitter, it has to be set on DLP link (which the glasses are.... apparently)...
So here's another quandary... this goddamn glasses company is out of business or something because I cannot get any information other than Amazon reviews on how to program the glasses. Which is not working right either because they are supposed to "blink" until it detects a signal. Occums Razor tells me that maybe everyone is wrong and I do need the emitter, or the tv is a lemon and the guy I bought it from is wiping his ass with my money.
Sorry if this post is all over the place, but I have brain diarrhea over this.
So here's a list of problems, for recap:
Halo around white text/objects, esp near black objects the white bleeds into the black.
DLP 3D glasses not syncing.
Don't need an emitter.
Mits software is up to date, oddly enough
PS4 software is up to date
Onkyo TX-NR636 was double checked that it supported 3D... it does.
Bulb has been replaced.
Cleaning mirrors will commense on Sat.
Just left a message for a tv repair guy. So he can wipe his ass with more of my money to get everything to work.

Bear with me while I go shoot myself.
