Ease of Use
First, I will tell you that I had a few problems with my setup. These are direct question and answers from the Epson Techs.
When I first install the 3010 and connected my PS3 the picture would flash on and off every 15 to 30 seconds but it whould not do this while watching a movie.
When viewing directv (tv shows or movies)the first 10 to 20 minutes are ok but after that the picture would flash on and off every 15 to 30 seconds.Also the gaming sucks bad on this projector because of the lag. will it be any updates to fix this?
ANSWERS FROM THE EPSON TECH
Thank you for contacting Epson.
For both issues, as a test, directly connect the PS3 then the DirecTV box to the projector. This will bypass the A/V receiver. More than likely the image from the DirecTV will be ok but the PS3 will still do the issue. This is because the DirecTV signal is 1080i and doesn't require as much bandwidth to display as a full 1080p signal does. When displaying the home screen with the settings, the signal is a full 1080p signal but when the movie plays it is probably a 1080p with 24 fps signal that doesn't require as much bandwidth as a full 1080p signal. This all leads up to being a cable length issue. This can be tested by connecting a shorter cable as a test. We only guarantee the signal will work from source to projector with a 15 ft HDMI cable. In order for you to still use the 40 ft HDMI cable, you will need to purchase an HDMI signal booster. This will amplify the signal across the long run to the projector.Unfortunately there will be no update to the lag for gaming. The lag is caused by a hardware component and not just the firmware. Some games do have a setting to calibrate the controller to the video being displayed.

So to fix this problem I i bought a hdmi signal booster and everything has been working great. But for gaming my luck has ran out. Also if you can't find extra espon 3d glass you can use the Panasonic 3rd generation, you will know this by the model number exp.TY-EW3D3SU the 3 before the S means 3rd generation the the S means small. The Panasonic are also rechargeable but the Epson's are not.
this package does come with 2 free pair of 3d glass which is a plus.
