Annoying Blinking problem
  1 / 12    
Bought myself the glasses and was quite content with them so far using them together with a Sony FW900 CRT and a Geforce 295, operating system is Vista64. Since the CRT got a little darker over the years, I thought it might be a good idea to try the Samsung 2233RZ. However this experience was rather dissapointing, because of getting the dreaded blinking issue, what makes all my games practically unplayable.

When I switch off multi GPU in the Nvidia control panel the blinking is gone, so I take it that SLI is somehow responsible for this.

I guess this problem is also present when using the CRT but not so detectable because of the different technology.

Of course I tried everything recommended using full loades glasses, tried all USB ports, but does not work with the 2233RZ wthout blinking.

Any thoughts?

I had the same problem with SLi.. I turned it off.. Fortunately a single gtx280 is powerful enough for most games.. so far.. I may try to update my motherboard bios.. but thats the only thing I havent tried.

I wonder, if this problem is due to synchronization problems with SLI, or more related to certain motherboards. I am still having a PCIEx16 v.1.0 slot on my MB, perhaps there is choking, because the bandwidth is more limited compared with a 2.0 slot. So what kind of board do you have?

Perhaps I will try to install on the AMD computer of my GF, just to rule out a motherboard issue.

Hello Nvidia, does 3DVision work with SLI or does it not?

Well I searched through this board, and it seems, that other users have these problems as well, so I would assume, it is definetly a SLI issue, when framerates drop under 60 fps, seems like another vista(64?) showstopper, bummer!

I will take the 2233RZ back to the store, and keep my old CRT, at least I get no blinking here. I would advise Nvidia, to solve this kind of problems quickly, otherwise I do not see them selling more graphics cards for SLI/3DVision setups.

I think it may be motherboard related since some people report SLI works fine for them. Interestingly my motherboard is Nvidia 790i Ultra sli which seems to have a stuttering problem with soundcards as well so i suspect it may be related.

Just to clarify here, what kind of "blinking" are you referring to? Are you referring to the intermittent momentary bright flashes that generally come in rapid succession? If so, I get those a lot, but no more frequently with SLI than without it. Also, if you're referring to the same blinking I am, I've determined almost for certain that it's THE GLASSES blinking, not the monitor or the graphics cards.

The next time you see the flashing, cover your eyes with your hands so you can see absolutely nothing but the glasses themselves (no line of sight to the monitor and no peripheral view ambient light) and you will STILL see the blinking & flashes of light. IMO it's something to do with synchronization of the IR transmitter and the shutters on the glasses, nothing to do with SLI, the monitor, or DX.

It's plagued me so long and so much I've wondered if perhaps my glasses have something wrong with them.

Yes exactly, bright flashes coming in a rapid succession. I even don't need to play a game to see those. In the Nvidia control panel, when running the setup wizard for 3D I get them immediately, but only with SLI enabled, I cannot even finish the setup procedure with everything blinking. Because it happens in the setup procedure too, it can't be some instability problems causing it. The whole system is just not able to synchronize for some reason.

I don't know, if SLI is responsible for this alone, probably it is a more complicated matter. But surely the kind of stereoscopic display matters, I get flashes only with the 2233RZ but no flashes at all with my CRT, so the glasses or the transmitter cannot be blamed for that.

I would like to here some comments from people, who are using the 2233RZ successfully with SLI enabled and don't get any flashes with specified hardware.

Well it's definitely not the monitor/display that is flashing, it's certainly the glasses themselves.... but if this happens only with the 2233RZ and not with a CRT/DLP or the other 120Hz LCD, maybe it's a driver conflict with the Samsung monitor driver??

I really don't think it's SLI related. I was getting the infamous blinking/flashing with a single 285 for a solid month before I added a second 285 for SLI. I don't see it any more frequently now than I did before.

Whatever the case, I would REALLY like to see this particular problem resolved, too. It's the ONE thing holding me back from absolutely declaring my love for 3d Vision. The flashing gets to be too much sometimes. :">

My issue is definitely sli related. I turn it off, and the glasses do not flash at all (maybe once in an hour or two).. tun it on flashing several times a minute.

I have two GTX 285 in SLI on an Asus Rampage II Extreme mobo and Samsung 2233RZ and I don't get any flashes at all. Running Vista 64bit and 1.08 drivers. I've been using them for more than 3 months now and I only remember flashes once in FSX...thats all. No flashes since in other games like COD series, Bioshock, Tombraider, Far Cry series etc. I believe that everyone's situation is unique. I was so freaked when I read all the flashes and SLI and it almost certainly seemed SLI problem, but there's also a noticeable number of people with SLI with no problems. Maybe we are missing something here...I'm confused.

This thread prompted me to do some testing last night.

With SLI enabled, I went into the nvidia stereoscopic 3d Vision test screen and simply watched it for about 5 minutes noting the frequency of flashes/blinking. Then I played a few minutes each in LOTRO, Crysis Warhead, & WoW, again noting the frequency and severity of flashes/blinking.

Then, I disabled SLI and repeated the same exercise.

I took note of absolutely NO DIFFERENCE in the frequency or severity of flashes/blinking with or without SLI.

The only other common factor among everybody who reports this problem seems to be a Creative X-Fi soundcard. Perhaps this weekend if I'm feeling quite energetic enough I'll try uninstalling the soundcard and going through the same exercise on the off chance that it has something to do with the the X-Fi or Creative's drivers. However, I think this is unlikely.

I also noted in the process of conducting these tests that my monitor had somehow defaulted to "generic PnP monitor" in my hardware manager, so to me that kind of rules out the Samsung driver conflict theory, too. :\ Although I'd still be curious to hear from anybody using the Viewsonic LCD and whether they get the flashes/blinking, too? (did anybody buy the Viewsonic? lol)

At this point, especially with nvidia's silence on the matter, I think it's just a flaw in the glasses technology. I do not believe it has anything whatsoever to do with SLI or the monitor.

For me I had lots of flashes in Fallout 3 until I turned Antialiasing off completely in the drivers. I'm not sure if it was having Antialiasing on that was causing all the flashes or the reduced framerate. I'm starting to think that if you go under a certain FPS (like 30 or 40) the flashing starts.

I also notice some blinking from the glasses. I have a samsung 2233RZ, p6t v2 deluxe mobo and a single geforce 285. I first noticed the blinking in the sample 3D videoclips from the Nvidia site. Sometimes I get 2-4 blink and other times no blink at all. So far, I would say that it does not happen too much but when you play in complete darkness, those blinks really hurt the eyes, they are bright.

I am sure that part of the blinks come from the glasses since I noticed my friend watching a video and I was looking at the glasses. When you play they activate and become darker. But suddenly while watching the video I saw that the glasses blinked and stop being dark for the time of the blink.

As I said, I have a single geforce 285 and I notcied this problem.

Uninstalled my soundcard too, just to make sure. Unfortunately the blinking is still there, unable to run the setup wizard with SLI enabled.
So the monitor has to go back, even if it is quite good otherwise, but that isn't what I bought this thing for.

I will rather wait until some new 120 MHz Monitors with better resolution like 1920x1080 will be available and keep my CRT until then. Hopefully those problems will be ironed out by then.

Using a single gtx 280 and thus no SLI I get blinking too, in my case brief flashes of light where the shutters are not in sync with the monitor/emitter. I used to get a couple of them a minute, sometimes maybe going for a few minutes without them, but I had them even in the setup application, so it is not a game driver/FPS/vsync issue.

I managed to reduce the blinking by a very noticeable amount by re-running the 185.85 setup application and, when prompted to select my emitter setup (single computer, living room or multiple computers running 3d vision), I chose the "living room - together with IR remotes" option. I assume doing so forces some sort of increased transmission fidelity or pairing between the emitter and the glasses, hereby reducing out-of-sync phenomena, but I am not sure. For me, it reduced blinking from a couple times per minute to nearly zero. I'm very happy with the glasses now.

For me, it reduced blinking from a couple times per minute to nearly zero. I'm very happy with the glasses now.
