Default 3D Glasses Don't Work On All 3D HDTVs

You've heard me take Silicon Image out to the woodshed more than once about their lack of conformity or upgradability and I am likely not done with them as they just launched HDMI 1.4a, but I am about to tee off on another topic - 3D glasses.

So, what exactly does it expand upon for an extra $450 +??? It say's it expands upon the best 3D gaming (more cartoons,sigh),,,for the limited games about to be released??? me see's 5 pair of glasses ($109 each),,the emitter (which is included with the glasses,not?),,,,,so just what else is included???

Upon further reading,,,the glasses will not work unless you pay an extra $450-$500 for the wireless emitter! It be a start for early adopters,,,but why buy it? If me buys a Panasonic 3DTV, it comes with one pair of glasses. 4 more sets of glasses = $600 bucks,,or simply put, $300 bucks cheaper than what they offer???

Something is not right. An emitter costs $50 not $450.

Plus they make other models like the X102 series that works with DLP-Link - no emitter needed and the X103 series which are their new universal IR glasses - works with any 3DTV that uses IR which almost all of the new ones do.

There are customed glasses, but as the new 3D tech evolves, i think they should addapt the glasses, to make a screen that can be seen as 3D, but without glasses.

They are skimming the early adopters...shame on them (and all companies worldwide)

Yeah, the glasses are not addapted for all 3d images, but i'm sure that in a few years there will be universal glasses which will be used for all 3d; i'm sure that somwhere, someone it'working on this.

I think they didn't think to this tiny detail, they focused only on the image. I'm waiting the day when we will be able to see 3D without glasses.

the reply is for eHDMI. But what's with that big difference...50$ and 450$? Is it legal to add that much?
