Do I need a Sony brand transmitter?

I inherited a Sony Projector VPL-HW55es and 3d doesn't work using my other active 3D glasses.

The manual lists these as optional accessories:
IR External Transmitter TMR-PJ2
IR 3D Glasses TDG-PJ1

The transmitter has been discontinued, with some used ones on Ebay.
Is there a replacement updated transmitter? Or do I need to find BOTH a used transmitter AND used glasses?

Or if I buy the used transmitter, will it work with any glasses?

Those aren’t compatible, you need Sony IR 3D glasses, not those BT ones
