So it's stop the presses and wait to see if we can get this stuff to work. That was a bold move on your part to buy the SG2100 glasses knowing you had the old style TV, I just couldn't take that chance and ordered more glasses that match my set.
And now we wait.
of course the SSG-1000's you ordered work with the Samsung dlp set. as long as its a 3d set then it would. the SSG 1000's come with an emitter.
Bad news for you though, the MItz converter does not work with samsung tvs and your Samsung 3d bluray player wont either as it doesnt do checkerboard. You should have got the panasonic bdt350 as it does have an option for checkerboard and then you dont need any converter.
there is a converter for the samsung dlp but all it is is the mitz converter with some work around that they charge extra for so the converter for samsung dlps is kinda pricey.
I'm annoyed about that and not sure what to do other then to just suck it up and get that converter that works with samsung dlp for content not from the panny 3d bluray player that supports checkerboard but so far I dont have any content that needs the side by side to checkerboard conversion as sadly another agravation for me is having FIOS.
The worst thing about that is that I previously had Comcast and Directv both. that would have been great to have the 3d from both providers but Directv sucked in several ways including on demand and going out in weather. Comcast didnt have nearly as much HD as fios and i was sick of paying them for so many years as we had them to start and stupidly kept them when we had fios and then when we dropped fios for directv we kept comcast with one hd dvr box so once fios had the most hd again, i was happy to drop directv and comcast and have just fios.
now this with no 3d on fios. they are getting it by the fall or holiday season and claim the reason they are delayed is because they want to be the best provider of 3d to beat the others just like how they offer the most hd but i dont fully buy that story.
I dont know what i'm going to do about that but i dont think i can stand to swtich back to comcast or directv and have their ppl in my house so i may just wait it out. the thing with these dlps is that the 3d isn't full hd 1080p to each eye anyway so the new 3d sets are going to be better and not require a converter. I just can't do a lamp based dlp anymore so the LED dlp is the way to go and i love my 67" but may get the samsung 65" 3d led lcd .
meantime I really just want a second pair of 3d glasses to work with the dlp and the SSG1000's i have. It wasn't such a risk to get the SSG2100's considering i got them from best buy and returend when they didnt' work. the point here is that the SSG2100's are the same as the mitsu glasses so those wont work with the SSG1000 emitter either.
so what should someone with a samsung tv do? no use getting the mitz starter kit as it comes with a converter that wont work with samsung dlp. I just need the emitter and the 2 glasses and then i could sell my ssg 1000's which i'm sure ppl are looking for cus personally i would buy another pair of those and be done for now but can't find SSG1000 anywhere.
The samsung starter kit i dont think comes iwth an emitter so basically i need the emitter of the mitz starter kit and the 2 glasses and then have to sel the converter and my ssg1000's and then i can buy an individual pairs of Samsung SSG2100 that will work with the mitsu emitter as the glasses that come with it in the starter kit are the same as SSG2100 and sounds like even the emitter is samsung model
so why the hell dont they sell the emitter for ppl that bought the samsung version of the ssg2100.
Again i guess my best bet is to get the mitsu starer kit and then sell the converter and my ssg1000's. get the samsung converter (which is just mitsu with a hack that you overpay for so some ppl are trying to see how to do the work around themselves)
then for 2 more pairs i guess i could get the samsung starter kit which i thin just comes with 2 glasses and no emitter and MvA 3d booray.
good thing about that scenario is that id then have 4 pairs of glasses and an emitter i can use now and then those same 4 pairs would work with no emitter with the Samsung 65" led lcd.
so yeah unless i'm wrong on something there i think i just figured out my plan despite it requiring a bunch of buying and selling.
Is there any way to get the emitter that comes with the mitsu starter kit separately? thats all i need and then i could just buy 2 paris of the samsung branded ssg2100's to work with it but at $150 a pair, the starter kit prob has better value even if i have to sell the converter. ugh.
being an early adapter does suck and especially all this trouble for limited content and then having to switch tv provider only for fios to get 3d a few months later and me wanting to switch back, :/
