I mainly spent time with Gran Turismo 5 and I'm loving it. At first I had some issues where the glasses would flash on and off (is that the dlp flash someone mentioned?) but I found out that it was because of my distance to the screen. I was about 8 1/2 feet away but when I moved to about 7 1/2 feet I didn't have that problem anymore. Does that have to do with brightness of the screen? Maybe setting my DLP bulb to bright would help, but I like being closer to the screen now with 3D anyway.
You are probably losing sync for a brief moment, rather than seeing the DLP Link flash. Your bulb may be affecting your range for sync. The DLP Link flash consistently makes the blacks look off (either teal, gray, or red, depending upon your TV). To check, pause on a scene with a lot of black on the screen, look at it without glasses on but with TV in 3D mode with DLP Link on, then look at it again with glasses on and synced. The improvement in the blacks with the glasses on should be dramatic.
When checking for rainbows, they show up most on very light scenes like white or the sky. Also, if you would, tilt your head 45 degrees with the glasses on during a light scene and see if you notice the rainbows appear. If they appear when you tilt 45 degrees, then they should disappear with your head not tilted. If the rainbow doesn't appear in either case, then you may be a lucky one whose TV is not afflicted. This is a bit selfish of me, but I hope you see the rainbows when you tilt your head, because that means these are the first DLP Link glasses to avoid rainbows with a level head.
