Hi there, 70SQ15U user here! I have a few questions I was hoping maybe some of you have encountered or could help me with:

1. How do I get the TV to convert 2D programming to 3D? When I hit the 2D/3D button I get a message that says NO OPERATION AVAILABLE. It was my understanding this TV could do a conversion? I've watched several actual 3D blu-rays on my PS3 and they look awesome.

2. With my Uverse receiver when I hit View Mode I don't get the option for Dot By Dot. It just says Full Screen. I get this no matter what video mode it's set in.

3. While watching Hulu+ in SmartCentral the video is constantly getting degraded and it stops to reload every few minutes, makes watching anything impossible. I tested Hulu+ thru my PS3 and Roku3 and it's flawless HD quality so I know it's not my internet connection. My TV is hard wired and I have 18MB Uverse service. Anyone else have this issue with Hulu+?

Thx!!

Here is a link to the calibrated settings he got.

Thanks, those settings look very nice on my UQ!

I figured out #1 and #2 . Turns out my Denon 2113 was doing all the signal processing. When I turned that off I was able to change the View Mode and do the 2D/3D conversion. Which I might add was not very impressive. Seems like a poor mans 3D IMO.

Depends on the content -- I watched some horseracing with the 2D>3D conversion and
the TV was able to make the horses stand out from the background nicely.
It has to have a cue from parallax or something to work from.

Good point. I tried it on a few TV shows and it definitely made the object in the foreground jump out a little for that added depth. I'll give football a try once the season starts. LOL

I guess after watching The Avengers 3D BluRay it's not a fair comparison

I like the 3D ok, but my 2012 set seemed to handle it a little better.
For one thing, it allowed a lot more control over the picture than this one.
More importantly, I've noticed some bright green one-pixel wide outlines of
objects on a couple of discs for brief scenes -- kind of like cut-outs that were
letting the background show through, or something. I never saw that on
the old set and I hope to not see it again on this one. If I do, I'll pause
long enough to make a note of the time and go back to the scene for
further analysis. Haven't seen The Avengers yet...
