Does anyone know if there's been any word on Samsung updating their B line LED/LCD's for 3D capability down the road? Or even if it would be possible? Just curious.

Full 3D capable HDTVs require some new new hardware components so no B model will be upgradable. Some of the new C models are fully 3D capable.

Do you mean actual 3D performance for true 3D material or 2D to 3D conversion?

I'm not sure.

I mean being able to use the arrays with the glasses. I read that they intended to upgrade the software and firmware in their DLP's that weren't already 3D ready to be able to use their 3D array and glasses... just didn't know if there's been any talk about doing the same for their LED, LCD or Plasma line.

you could look into playing your 3d content on your computer & outputting it to the 8500 with something like nvidia's 3d vision...

it's my understanding, though, that you need a monitor capable of doing 120Hz over dvi which most hdtvs can't handle...i'm fuzzy on why you can't just use a dvi to hdmi converter...

i read here of someone able to use the 3d on his xbox...

anyways...please keep us posted on what you find out...

Are people really contemplating buying GEn 1 3D HDTV's I read they are already considering a 3D 120Hz spec.

Making your 3D only tv's worthless,..Well I mean 3D looks blurry as heck on screen.

You really want something thats 3D and 120hz

And I know you need 240hz to show 3D at least thats what the TV's have but this would be on top of that so

240hz 3D
240hz 3D 120hz ( this is what you wan to wait for)

but people who can afford a Gen 1 3D HDTV really don't care about price or quality anyways. Its mostly bragging rights flaunt to them.

3D LCDs are all at least 240 hertz.... do you mean that they are working on a way to have 3D AND motionflow/amp enabled at the same time? because that's what i want

The full Blu-ray 3D implementaiion records a 1080p/24 image for each eye and ouputs them to a full 3D TV using 1.4 HDMI. The TV then, on a 240Hz TV, can display each eye 120p/60 using 5:5 pulldown.
If the TV has 120Hz refresh rate instead of 240Hz then each eye would be displayed at 1080p/60 using 3:2 pullddown.
