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

Dear colleagues, 

I am having some difficulty configuring a 3D projector for use with chimera, so I am hoping that someone may be able to offer some advice.
Briefly we have a Projection Design F35 DLP projector that uses DLP-link to synchronise the shutter glasses.
I have a Windows 7 PC with an nVidia K-series video card to run the projector (I have to use Windows - please don’t say use linux!).
Through the nVidia GUI I set the driver to DLP, but in chimera the image does not seem to be flickering and there is no 3D image, even though the glasses are shuttering.
The image is distorted in a similar way to that seen with shutter glasses but it is static.
The only way I can get chimera to give a flickering image is when I set it to use the DIN socket, but of course the image is not synched to the glasses.

I would be grateful for any advice on system settings I may need to make to get this working.
