for either blu-rays or games? I don't believe my mitsubishi TV has a 3d conversion feature. If it does, I haven't discovered it.

Thanks

Shooting in 3D is the best illusion of stereography. A conversion in the processor just uses an algorithm that hunts for large blocks of similar color and bumps them out of the surrounding textures of color. This is mostly inaccurate and produces confusing or annoying gimmick. In video editing we can manually manipulate parts of an image and pop them from the surroundings. This is labor intensive conversion.

Many TV's have a conversion 2D to 3D and some work better than others. My Sony 90 ES projector has it and it is annoying in most cases. A gimmick in the remaining cases. Using it to move the 2D movie screen behind the real screen a few inches and then having to wear the glasses is annoying with little value (IMO). The gimmick is when watching a news channel and the surrounding graphics is pulled out above the interviews or news anchors camera view which remains flat, adds nothing to the program, it is just a gimmick.
Real 3D made with good 3D cameras and graphics is fun and entertaining to watch and often adds a new dimension to the story.

Right, I understand it's certainly not the best of the best, I'm just dying to watch more 3D material on my new 3D TV.

Could it potentially/will it have this capability in the future?

Who knows for sure, but I wouldn't bet on it. We own a 2d-3d converting BD player. Honestly, it's a better idea than feature and doesn't work very well. We never use it.

But if it's a must have for you, I know panasonic BD players start cheap and provide this option.
