It's for the Mitsubishi TVs and comes with the BT emitter and one pair of BT glasses. I received mine from Amazon today.

Are the BT glasses supposed to be a lot better? They sure are more expensive I guess since you have to buy the BT emmiter? Why would I buy glasses that require an external BT emmiter when the TV has an internal IR emmiter?

BT sync is a lot better and more consistent. I can walk into my kitchen and get some popcorn without losing sync. Plus the newer sets are adopting BT so you will be better insured a variety of choices to come.

I agree, with the other type 3D glasses all I needed to do was turn around for a second or two and they would lose sync. With these I can walk away for a little while and never worry about it. Plus, they only cost me around $20.00. The DLP links were over $100.00 and the IR glasses were around $60.00. I can afford to get a few of these for guests.

When you guys are mentioning the BT glasses those are glasses that can be used with the 742 and 842's only right? If you want to use it with the 642 you would need to buy a separate IR emitter?

From what I'm understanding, which is where I'm getting confused, for a soon to be 642 owner such as myself, the only type of 3D that the 642 can do out of the box is glasses that are specified as DLP LINK?

Anything else and you would want to get a separate IR emitter for the other types of glasses?

Since you seem to be familiar with BT glasses, how about this, I'll tell you where they got those glasses for 20 bucks if you return the favor by answering my post right above yours? wink.gif

Does anyone know how to get into the service menu for the 742 series? I tried playing some PS3 games today and a lot of the menus are going way off screen so it seems I have some overscan issues to try and correct.

Thanks

The BT emitter is only $10. The problem is it only comes with a pair of glasses. So the Emitter and a pair of glasses is $70 while just a pair of glasses is $60. At least these are the current prices on Amazon.

One of the reasons I ordered the 642 instead of the 742 is because I would have ended up ordering the BT emitter and glasses anyway since RF is always better than IR(at least with everything else I've used). So I figured the $100 I saved by getting the 642 series would go toward the BT emitter and BT glasses.

There is a link to the service manual on Post #1. The manual is very good on instructing how to adjust the geometry. I had some severe overscan and vertical lines converging inward on top 20% of the screen. I was able to make a big improvement, it's not perfect but pretty good.

Nice, so just to confirm, I should be able to do this - [URL=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009ZW7SR2/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00[/URL][/quote]

Which will get me the BT emitter and one pair of BT glasses. Then I can get more BT glasses for 18 bucks a pop with these - [URL=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007K9P7H0/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00[/URL][/quote]



Does that sound right? Thanks guys.

Curious to hear more about BT glasses, but IR glasses work perfectly too. Sony PS3 3D glasses we have sync up with no lag or whatsoever o our 82742, work great too. For those interested, they are $19.99 at Best buy now.

So you folks running the ps3 glasses - do you actually have a ps3? Since there's a lot of talk of them on here I'm assuming they work directly with the internal IR emmiter on the 742 and above TVs?

Just so I'm clear. I have no first hand knowledge of them working yet since my TV has not been delivered yet. The BT Emitter and Glasses kit specifically says that they work with all 2010 and later model Mitsubishi TVs. And the Samsung glasses I am going by what the person posted on this thread that they use them.
post #560 of 1190
Yeh. Thanks. I may order the ps3 glasses instead since it appears I can get 2 pairs for 40 bucks at best buy. I understand the BT has benefits, but I'm all about getting something decent for really cheap, especially since I bought the 742 TV.

I just need to confirm the ps3 glasses work without a ps3 - pretty sure they should.
post #561 of 1190
Hi everyone, I have a quick question regarding playback of a movie that I just noticed.

I have the 82842 and it is working great except I haven't had the time to calibrate it yet. Anyway so far I have watched 2 Disney Pixar 3D films and 1 regular Blu-ray disc with no problem. However, last night I put on the new batman movie, the dark knight rises and there were many times where the movie was showing in Letterbox mode (the two black bars at the top) and then many scenes in full mode (which I prefer).

So my question(s) is:
Is this because of the way they shot the movie?
Is there a setting on the tv or blu-ray player to keep it in full mode (I couldn't find one)?
And if this same disc was to be played on lets say a 32 or a 55 tv, would this happen also or is it because the screen is just way to big on the 82 and its not being formatted correctly for the tv?

Thank you all

I have the BT glasses and they work great! I have had a few people already try out the 3D on my tv and they all love that they are very light! After an hour of watching a 3D movie I can say that I did kind of wanted to take them off since they were starting to annoy me. So I can only imagine another set of 3D glasses that are heavier and bulkier.

In any case, I don't think you can go wrong with either the samsung glasses or the ps3. As I have read that many people do like the ps3 glasses.

It's the way they shot the movie. The full screen shots were done for IMAX.

For those of you that don't want to wait, I went over to BB yesterday and they did a price match on the BT 3D glasses from Amazon for me. I only had to pay the tax which I wouldn't have to on Amazon but then you need to pay shipping unless it's more than $25.00.

I just watched this movie last night and never noticed the changes in format. It was so good to me that I was more into the action. biggrin.gif However like it was said, it is done for theatrical purposes.

In theory (only because I haven't tested it other than multiple BT glasses using the FullHD2DBT protocol i.e. not Vision Max's Bauldron (?) protocol) it should work as long as it is the same protocol.

Yes, they work without a PS3. They will work with any TV that has an IR transmitter as far as i know.

I actually bought a couple of pairs of these and also a pair of DLP Link glasses. The DLP Link glasses produced much better results in my opinion so I returned the PS3 glasses. Not sure if the glasses are just superior or if the DLP Link technology in general just works better with these DLPS...

These are the glasses I got in case you are interested
