[Chimera-users] DLP-link for 3D sequential stereo viewing

I suspect you need to contact the projector's manufacturer to find out 
what "Active 3D stereo compatible" means to them.  In the F35 user's 
manual I found, it says that it supports HDMI 1.3a, not the 1.4a needed 
for 3D stereo (may be a typo).  And the 3D sync input on the connector 
panel is "Reserved for future use." Not a good sign.

So first, find out what the projector's manufacturer expects to work, 
then feel free to contact me for more help.  I will also need to know 
what kind of active glasses and emitter you are using (NVIDIA 3D Vision, 
RealD CrystalEyes, etc.).

     Good luck,
