I'm sold, even though I didn't get to see any movies due to the PS3 not being updated yet. On to the questions: Can I use the Mitsubishi glasses with the Geffen setup, or do I need the DLP link glasses? Also can I same some money by buying the Gefen straight up and flashing it with my friends Mitsubishi? I'm pissed off that Samsung it trying to screw everyone into buying a new tv when some of their current tv's can do 3D. I guess I'll have to go Mitsubishi when I want a full 1080p for each eye 3d.
So i would need
Emitter with Glasses or DLP link glasses
and 3d source "PS3"
Any special wires "aside from HDMI cables?
I have the same TV as you and its currently working with both my Xbox 360 (because 3D can be forced by software) and my PS3. I have not gotten it working on my D* at all, and I only got it to work with my Sony Blu-Ray 3D player once (without the AVR in the mix, so no sound).
First off, you don't need
DLP Link glasses. The mitsubishi glasses that come with the starter kit work great. Supposedly, the Sammy glasses will also work with the kit. This is because the kit comes with an emitter and an interconnect cable, so the adapter can communicate with the TV's 3D port, and with the emitter. When it gets working, it all works beautifully.
Secondly, getting the PS3 to work the first time is difficult. Fortunately, once it works, it keeps working hassle-free. When the 3D BR firmware comes out, it will replace my Blu-Ray player completely.
Getting it all to work with D* or a Blu-Ray player is another story. You will reach a point where there are simply too many EDIDs in the loop, and the source will refuse to detect 3D. Its frustrating. But I'm happy that it works with the PS3/360.
Also, I'd recommend picking up a 1.4 Audio/Video Receiver for your setup. I bought a Denon DHT-591BA, which is a great receiver with a Boston Acoustics 5.1 channel speaker system, all for $600. Since its 1.4 compatible, it can pass 3D through and still give you lossless audio (via HDMI).
Hope this helps. You can PM me if you have more specific questions about my setup/experience.
