POLL FOR 3D READY DLP HDTV OWNERS ONLY!!!
Over 4 million 3D ready DLP HDTVs were sold in the US alone. 3D ready DLP HDTVs are capable of producing a very good 3D picture but are only compatible with the 3D Checkerboard Format. It does not appear that the current generation of equipment used by Satellite and Cable providers is capable of generating a 3D Checkerboard Image. Additionally, as of now the only 3D Blu-ray players that generate a 3D Checkerboard signal are those manufactured by Panasonic. Samsung, one of the largest manufacturers of 3D ready DLP HDTVs has apparently abandoned their customers by not including the 3D Checkerboard as an option on their 3D Blu-ray players.
Mitsubishi has announced plans to manufacturer a 3D Checkerboard Converter but has announced that the device will only be compatible with Mitsubishi DLP HDTVS due to EDID restrictions that Mitsubishi will be imposing on the converter. There is some concern that as a result of Mitsubishi's actions the converter may not be compatible with some A/V receivers. Additionally, the converter will only have one video input / output which may be a problem for some users who have multiple 3D video sources.
The ideal converter would have no EDID restrictions and offer at least two HDMI inputs. Please feel free to share any other specifications which you believe would be important in your comments.
I have not defined what a reasonably priced 3D Checkerboard Converter is as I believe that it would be better to receive input from my fellow AVS members regarding the price range.
If you intend to buy the Mitsubishi 3D Checkerboard Converter then you should vote yes to this poll. Hopefully, someone will make a solution for owners of Samsung 3D ready DLP HDTVs or make a device that is superior to the Mistsubishi Converter for all 3D ready DLP HDTV owners.
Thank you for your input and for participating in this poll
