 - if you are playing SBS / OU encoded files, teh usual is left eye first in SBS, left eye top in OU, but I found some files reverted so sometimes I need to use the soft press of the power button to solve it.

my advice is always pause the production logo at the beginning of the movie to check the correct 3d setting, most of the main movie companies have 3d logos with nice 3d effects abd let me check with easy.

Note: If you got the Estar glasses you will need to change polarity in the emiter, or in the software if you are playing from a PC. I send a while ago a message to Estar to chgeck if their glasses support the soft press power button polarity feature of the VIP3d glasses but so far I've got no response from then.

Hope it helps...

The EStar glasses do not support the power button polarity change of the VIP glasses. Even running the EStar glasses with the VIP emitter doesn't change that. I personally like the polarity change ability, but EStar feels the on/off switching is more important. To each his own!

I do like the polarity switch feature. I think is more important than power off, but we are nor Estar.

 

there is another thing into account...

 

Estar charge $15 less for the glasses.

I'm thinking in buying two next month, but I'm waiting to see if consignia drop the price to 60.00 CAD again, that one is lees than 55 USD with the latest exchage rates. They did it around new year day.

I thought you were writing about this ones: 

http://www.amazon.com/EStar-America-ESG6000-RF-3D-Glasses/dp/B00D341DUQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1391023654&sr=1-1&keywords=estar

 

Those you have most probably won't work with 60Hz. Those are DLP-Link Projector glasses, those required a DLP-Link Projector or TV to work since they sync with a image in the screen, not a IF or RF signal.

The glasses work fine, that's not issue I'm talking about say I watch Avatar, I put in the disc and watch it.. later I take the disc out only later to put it back in.. now I have to switch my 3D invert settings again because somehow it randomly changes on each disc insert.

my projector is DLP.. I might get RF glasses (they are so overpriced) because being that my projector is a white flash model movies with high white areas like Resident Evil: Afterlife near the end, my glasses lost sync a few times, and in one part long enough for the glasses to go into standby.

The BitCauldron based tech use a communication protocol like the bluetooth called zigbee develop for application with little data rate but with need of realtime sync.

This protocol has a range of around 120 meters, and was develop to avoid interference so the galsses should never be out of sync.

 

For me, they've never gone out of sync or anything negative. I have nothing more than praises for this tech.

I think they perform every penny I paid for then.

Yesterday I was testing some smsung 3D apps from my 3D BD player and find out the Theater switch to 3D auto witch is great but after I stop the 3D video, it does not switch back witch is a little anoying.

I had to unplug/replug the power supply to revert the 3D in the Theater, pressing the 3D format selection button did not help.

 

any thoughts?

Well, I finally decided that the flickering is too much for me. I have my VIP Theatre device and RF glasses up on ebay. I was worried I wasn't going to get back nearly what I paid for everything, but so far it looks like I am going to be close to even. I wish there was a way to remove or reduce the 60hz flicker, because I can't stand it! Live and learn.

Truly sorry to hear that. Fortunately for my wife and I, neither of the displays we use the Theatre products with are giving us fits with flicker. Perhaps we're just among the few percent of the population that aren't bothered by it.

I'm sorry too.

 

For me the Plasma flicker is so low, and only is extremely bright images that for me is a win.

But my goal is to go to a LED projector like the Optoma ML-1000P with a screen of about 60-70"

 

I really advise going this way. For what I've read even if the 1000 lumens looks not enought, if you see 3D mostly at night with very regulated light

it should be fine.

 

I'll write about when I get there sometime in the future.

The flicker was horrible for me. I heard it was bad but still gave it a try. I contacted Jonathan Alexander, who sold it to me, and asked if I could get a refund if it was unwatchable. He agreed, but it was so bad that I returned it. I was using a LED projector and they did not go well together.

Good to know, as I intent to go with the optoma ML1000P.

Witch one you have?

I was 120Hz?

 

Thanks,

Thanks,

I used a Digital Projection M-Vison Cine LED Projector. Its a high end projector that cost $17,000. I got a really good deal on it. I had a couple of 3D projectors before, JVC RS40,48, and 55, Benq W7000 and W1070, along with a couple of Optoma. So, I knew what a good 3D projector looks like. I didn't want to go the DLP Link route because that technology ruins contrast. So, I wanted IR/RF to give me the best results. The picture looked amazing but that flickering just made me nauseated. Jonathan Alexander called me to get it working properly, but if you know a crystal clear, ghost free DLP look, and flicker is bad. I hear its not as bad on some displays, so I wiuld be hesitant to spend so much on it when you can get a 1080p DLP for $100-250 more. I'm still waiting on my refund for about 2 months now. I don't want to bad mouth the product because so many people enjoy it, but if you promise me a refund if 'm not satisfied, you should honor the request. Also, it wasn't that I just did not like it, the constant flicker made me sick.

I have my high end work camera with me - a Canon 60D. So, before I get rid of everything I'll take an HD video through as seen through one side of the glasses while playing a PS3 game in 3D using the Optoma HD20 (60hz). Even though it is only one lens the flicker should be obvious in the video. I'll post it later. That will give me one last moment with the equipment, which will most likely remind me why I am selling it, and give people a true idea of what to expect on a 60hz display. I imagine it is perfect on a 120hz display.

EDIT: due to the camera's shutter speed I was unable to get a good view of flicker through the lens. You can see it with your eyes clear as a bell, but through the camera it disappears. I didn't feel like spending all day attempting to capture what flicker looks like so I gave up quickly.

Finally mounted the VIP on the AVR... it seemed to have suppressed me having to flip my projector's 3D invert on every disc change of the same movie.. maybe that's because I was running the VIP direct to the projector?

Watched Gravity with it and it was great!

I need to get the setup to try on my LCD soon.
