I'm getting a 3DTV tomorrow, and I got a quick question about interference from IR. On the Samsung 3DTV FAQ, it says the following:

What are the best viewing conditions for 3D TV in my home?

When in 3D mode, there may be certain conditions in your home that may affect the normal operation of your 3D TV and glasses. Some devices that emit IR frequencies (e.g. fluorescent lights) may interfere and cause your glasses to see flicker. To alleviate this, Samsung recommends to switch off fluorescent lights in the vicinity of your TV.



Will the Wii sensor bar interfere with the 3D glasses?


Also, I do have fluorescent lighting, which I can just turn off when I watch TV. If I do have the lights on though, am I guaranteed to see "flicker" or are only some lights at that certain frequency?


Thanks.

I think the Wii bar will probably interfere with the glasses. Since there's really no point to having the Wii on when using the glasses though, this shouldn't be a problem. Here's hoping you're not under the impression that Samsung's 2d to 3d is going to make your Wii games look good in "3d". It won't.

Thanks.

I have played with the Wii on 3D using the 2D to 3D mode without any problems. The glasses are probably on a different frequency. I even use a pair of infrared headphones while viewing 3D with no issues. Good luck and enjoy your new TV.

I was thinking of getting a new receiver Onkyo would be one to consider, but now that I hear that. I have the Harman Kardon AVR254, it does not have that problem.
