Samsung and Mitsubishi have collaborated and designed an adapter for use on the Samsung 3D DLP TVs without using the Gefen HDMI Detective and without updating the EDID on the Samsung TVs! I received this information from Mr. Dan Schinasi of Samsung via an e-mail reply (shown below) on 01/25/2011.
Dear Mr. Lewandowski,
A derivative adapter for Samsung DLP was developed in collaboration with Mitsubishi. (Model 3DC-100). A distribution network is being set-up but our expectation is that Samsungparts.com will offer it on their site in the next few weeks. Additional retailers TBA.
Mitsubishi is currently (01/26/2011) selling the adapter in a kit called 3DC-100S 3D Starter Pack
which comes with the 3D Signal Adapter, 3D Signal Adapter Remote Control, 2 pairs of Active Shutter 3D glasses, Emitter for 3D Glasses, Disney Blu-ray 3D Showcase Disc and One HDMI cable. The selling price is $449.00 and can be found at http://www.unisentvoffer.com/unisent...0S/details.htm
The above web page comes from http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/accessories/3DC100S
The 3DC-100S is advertised as such, "The Mitsubishi 3D Adapter converts most types of 3D signals into the signal type Mitsubishi 3D Ready TVs and Samsung 3D capable DLP TVs are designed to display. Most 3D Blu-ray players, 3D game consoles and cable and satellite boxes can be connected to a Mitsubishi 3D DLP Home Cinema TV and Samsung 3D capable DLP TVs with the adapter for an immersive 3D experience."
I am currently investigating whether or not Mitsubishi will be selling this adapter in a kit such as the 3DA-1, for those who already have glasses and emitter, etc.Update 01/26:
I just talked with Mitsubishi and they WILL be offering the Adapter from the 3DC-100S as a stand alone kit like the 3DA-1 from the 3DC-1000. They do not have a part number yet, but they will be offering it in the future!Update 10/21:
After waiting for 9 months for the stand alone adapter kit (using 3DA-100S adapter) I decided on 10/19 to e-mail Mitsubishi again, asking if the kit is available yet. Mitsubishi wrote, "It is not available separately and there're no plans at this time to sell it separately." Hmmm, first they say it will be available separately and then they say there are no plans to sell it separately. I guess Mits' is not immune to the action "say one thing but do another"! - End of update.
Thank you Samsung and Mitsubishi for responding to the cry of the Samsung 3D DLP owners!
Thank you PlumB (and all the rest) for showing how to use the 3DA-1 (from 3DC-1000) on the Samsung without the Gefen HDMI Detective.
