thanks again for your quick reply.
I ve read 1525 and 1528 but the technical discussion is way over my knowledge. Can you maybe just help me with still the questions I have?:
Can I just use a USB power adapter (like my Samsung Galaxy S power adapter) and plug it in the emitter to get my Optoma glasses work with the VW95 (do NOT need the Sony glasses to work!)?
IF this works, where should I put the BC-100 then for best signal?
And what does the arrow buttons do on the BC-100 emitter?
ps. Also got a reply in the Monster Vision thread about my questions:
the connector on the Sony is nonstandard. The BC-10 IR reciever only comes with the Monster 3d Max set, not with the Optoma branded set, and I have never seen them made available separately. You'll need to make or acquire the custom cable. It is not known whether the Optima BC-100 will take the Monster firmware, nor whether the Optoma firmware will use the BC-10.
What does this tell me?
EDIT: also related to the Optoma emitter but for later, first I want to make the emitter actually work but I need input on the above questions.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=549
