i have a 2007 Samsung HLT6187S DLP TV and the Onkyo 805 receiver from 2007. I just went out and snagged the Panasonic DMP-BDT100 player as I read it can do checkerboard. It was only around $140 shipped. Pretty good deal, considering I don't have a standalone player (been using a HTPC for years). It'll also be more convenient, as I've recently started buying BD movies, instead of just renting them.
Assuming I buy a pair of the DLP link based ViewSonic PGD-150 glasses, would this be the last item I need for 3D Blu-ray movies, or will I have issues with my receiver? Supposedly without buying a new receiver, it cannot pass the 3D 1080p signal available on most players, and I think even the standard 3D setting on the Panasonic player.
