Before I get too far down the road on this...outside of this adapter and the glasses and using my PS3, is there anything else I need to purchase to get my 3D functionality up and running?
I've read the threads and this is what I have determined?
If you have DLP Link glasses, then you have all the hardware covered. Otherwise, you will need an IR emitter with IR glasses. I am using a PS3 as well, and DLP Link glasses from Ultimate 3D Heaven.
For the PS3 - Once you have everything connected, go to Display Settings > Video Output Settings and select HDMI, then Automatic. In a few seconds it will come back with resolution of the TV, select yes, and then it will ask you to select the size of your TV and you're done.
For the TV - Don't forget to connect to HDMI port 3 and rename it to PC via the Samsung menu. After you put a Blu-Ray 3D disc in, the adapter should recognize it as 3D and you should see 3D light up on it. Then hit the Tools button on your Samsung remote and change the 3D mode to 1 (for IR) or 2 (for DLP Link) depending upon which glasses you have. If you don't see this option on your TV, then it's not seeing the 3D signal and you may have to manually hit the 3D button on the adapter.
For the glasses - make sure they're on!
Notes - When you switch to 3D mode on the TV, be prepared for a seriously red tinted picture and possibly some extra noise you didn't hear from your TV before. The glasses should take care of most of the red tint (more so with DLP Link glasses). The sound from turning on 3D mode will be drowned out by any audio from the movie so it's not distracting.
Finally, enjoy some 3D!
