Will it work with a flat pannel, and will glasses cause problems?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

1. Yes
2. No

The IR transmitter is mounted on you monitor. It doesn't matter at all what sort of monitor you have.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

eye glasses can cause problems, some forum members wer able to work around this ...and not a problem with flatpanels.

but its not just the eyeglasses, anything that is reflective that the IR light can bounce off of (dorknobs... ( http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif ) wtf...er...DOOR KNOBS,windows, fishtanks.anything smooth and reflective.

Just count in every source of alternative light spots it can catch. Reflectives also, just like said the glasses.
I was tearing my hair off due strange TIR behavior during play until I realized the door behind me was open to corridor and the lamp. How many times I was actually watching the reflection of it during dark screen moments until I realized it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Bollocks, I wear eyeglasses and got TrackIR 3 with vector expansion, no problems at all, the TIR software simply ignores the reflection from my eyeglasses.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

My TrackIr 2 had problems when I started wearing glasses. Only when I tilted my head upwards, then it would always recenter without my permission.

Earlier versions (i.e. TIR1 and TIR2) were much more susceptible to abient light sources skewing the tracking. Even a lit cigarette or a bright window would cause problems at times. I too went to TIR3 Pro with the vector expansion and haven't had a problem of any kind with it for over 2 years.

NO ISSUES with Track IR 4.

If you are interested in this peripheral I say jump in the water's fine. NO PROBLEMS with Track IR 4.

I've got a fairly large window behind my monitor. I also have full size sliding door/ mirrors about 10 feet behind me. AND I wear glasses.

No problems here, and rarely did I have problems with my Track IR 1. (Not trying to negate others issues, but with Track IR 4 I've not read of anyone having problems unless it was installed incorrectly or the devise was defective.)
