Anyway, while we all are "patiently" waiting on our 3DXL's this test needs to be run with known equipment and settings possibly by rdjam or someone who has a great knowledge of 3D imaging.
RDJAM or anyone with the proper equipment and a 3DXL. In your spare time (LOL) would it be possible for you to obtain a 720p projector and try a quick connect as a single projector and determine if there any issues with the 3DXL scaler from BD at 1080p down to the 720p projector. If anyone could do this it would relieve everyone's mind who are waiting and dying for 3DXL tests and information. THANKS.
I've seen the opposite of this issue before, under different circumstances. I have a Mits 60" DLP TV which does 3D via checkerboard, but at 1080p/ wobulation (what a term!) In that case, being a 1080p (2D) native display I believe hurt the GAMING aspect off a PS3 much more than the 3D bluray.
For gaming w/ Gran Turismo, the PS3 outputs 720p 60hz per eye in 3D, but the display must then upscale it to 1080. For instance, using 3D Vision on the PC, one MUST output 1080p full screen for the set to function in 3D. This choice isn't available for games on the PS3. The 1.4 standard as I'm sure you know only supports 1080p/24 or 720p/60in 3D. So movies @ 1080/24 look pretty good on the Mits. But for PS3 games, there is a very noticeable jaggieness, loss of resolution and noise added to the image (text especially, like menus) in 3D. I'll bet it has more to do with trying to show 720p on a 1080p native display than anything. It's so bad I prefer not to use 3D on GT5 now with this Mits.
I'd like to try a consumer HDMI 1.4 3D display like the plasmas or LCDs with Gran Turismo to see if the detail loss going to 720p/60 3D is as noticeable, but those are also 1080p displays. Perhaps it's just a bad combo with the checkerboard for DLP and true 1.4 display might help? I love 3D gaming but prefer the 1080p 2D on the PS3 thus far. I suspect with the 720p projector however, once this adapter is available, it may improve things for console-based 3D gaming since 720p per eye is the standard (and hopefully for you all more interested in movies, it won't dagger you as a result with 1080/24 content!)
In fact, has anyone seen a brick and mortar store with a PS3 set up in 3D on a plasma or LCD? I'd like to try it out, but my local Best Buy was just showing movies, not games, for example...
