Since you didn't get as much depth as you were expecting and the PQ had a few issues, did you try the other mode and give it a few seconds to actually switch?
I had read repeatedly that I needed Mode 2 on my Samsung "for all 3D viewing" so that's what I selected from the very beginning and it turns out that for IR glasses Mode 2 does have some depth to it but it's mediocre, shallow, hazy, and fairly hard to watch while Mode 1 is simply unbelievable and so deep I felt like could literally just reach out and touch stuff while seated 9 feet away from my "little" 50-inch TV with no sync or PQ issues whatsoever other than maybe wanting just a little bit more saturation and brightness but I haven't even begun to figure out how to calibrate my TV yet and didn't even try... I just plugged everything in, figured out the 2 settings I had wrong that were preventing any video from showing up in the 3D Effect modes, and then just sat and watched jaw-dropping 3D HDTV from about 3:30PM 'till after midnight, switching between the IR UC's and IR SSG's a few times at random just to compare them.
Note that I have the IR version of the UC glasses and actual Sammy SSG-2100's which both arrived yesterday to begin my 3D Viewing experience and all I can say is WOW!
Yeah, I watched in mode 1 the first time. There was a test pattern screen output by the Panny that let me test both modes. I did not notice any diff between mode 1 and 2 there. I was in a hurry to watch the movie before the wife came home.
Today I tried mode 2 and BAM! What an awesome job the old TV does. The wife watched that with me and had zero complaints about the glasses over her RX glasses or anything else about the UCs or experience. I did notice some effects I had missed before. Going to watch it again soon, the quality is that good. By that I mean film quality, the plot and acting is typical of classic 80s horror movies which I grew up with and I found it spot on.
So the picture was a ton better as far as 3d. Still some rainbow that goes away when I turn my head 45*, how stupid is that design by what I gather is most manufacturers of DLP link glasses?
The UC DLP link glasses are a hit on my Samsung DLP TV. Very good picture on the MBV movie I have seen. Oh, and I have now tried them with all my ceiling flourescent lighting on and not a single synch issue from that. Now I want to get my hands on that Avatar movie to see if that CG stuff floats out of my screen like it did on the Mits at the store. Awaiting Saw 3d.
Will probably be ordering another set or two.
