Here are a couple of interesting posts:
I have Samsung DLP LED television, on Onkyo receiver that is not HDMI 1.4 and the new Panasonic BDT300 and it runs through the receiver to my television in checkerboard mode and there are no audio or video problems. The disc plays just fine. The television info shows full 1080p. Mind you, this is only the demo 3D disc that came with the player since there are no other movies for me to try without paying $349.99 to get glasses that I do not need and the Monsters VS Aliens movie.
How much resolution would you say you lose I'm
practice compared to the 2d? All reprts I've read is that it's pretty minor
I would say marginal at best. It looks just as good in 3d as it does in 2d, with the exception of light output. Colors look good, black levels take a hit but still acceptable, detail is very good. The 3d effect is good to excellent. On the Panasonic disc there is a Coral Reef video with hundreds of fish swimming and it is crazy to the point where it looks like the fish are actually tangible as if they were swimming in your living room. Great stuff. I really hope this goes well as this is great tech and adds yet another feature to your home entertainment.
I also wanted to point this out. On my setup I have the Samsung DLP, the Panasonic 3d player, and a Sony soundbar with HDMI 1.3. I ran the HDMI video out into my soundbar and out the soundbar to the tv. I was able to watch 3d and have audio without using the seperate HDMI out. It has to be that checkerboard isn't as big of a stream than frame packed. Oh well, at least the option is there if I get another display.
All of this information sounds very hopeful to me.
