I have been following the 3D trials/tribulations and joys and I want to thank all of you for "pioneering" this endeavor. Manipulating the service menus in a new $1,500.00 TV shows that you have more guts that I do! Your efforts are truly appreciated! I have my service remote in hand and the glasses should arrive in a day or two. Although it is not directly related to this thread, some of you may be more knowledgeable than myself regarding my cabling dilemma. When my house was being built, I ran 7.1 speaker cables and an HDMI cable inside the walls (the TV is above a fireplace). I spent too much time and effort to achieve a"clean" setup and do not want visible cables running up and down the walls. For the TV I used "Rapidshare" cables (mfg #: 40859 - 15' runner) terminated with HDMI "Flying Leads." As I installed this system in 2008, my best guess is that they are HDMI 1.1.
Last year I purchased a left-over and heavily discounted Denon 4310(HDMI 1.3) receiver because I was made to believe that the cables must be 1.4 in order to be 3D compliant and 2D was the best I could do. The people that answered the phone at "Rapidshare" just told me that the cables are not certified 1.4 compliant. I will be buying a 3D Blu-ray player shortly. Before I go out and also purchase a 1.4 receiver, I am trying to verify their answer regarding these cables as there have been conflicting posts(not in this thread). My question: Is anyone out there getting 3D using older HDMI cables in a pass through configuration from their receiver to the TV? If yes, are you giving anything up?
I love the 55lv9500 as my main TV (family room) for broadcast, streaming, and movies. That's what I bought it for. However, I do have a smaller room that is wired for 5.1 sound and I can use the 9500 to replace the Panasonic plasma that is there now. Fortunately, the TV is on a stand and the HDMI cable is not buried in a wall. One way or another, I will be enabling the 3D!!!!
