Ok i been looking but can not find an answer.
I have a 3D ready tv.
I do not have a blu-ray player.
If i get a 3d blu-ray player such as a DMP-BDT210, will it play normal 2D out put to the TV or is it always 3D?
Hmm I think I know what you're asking. If it's playing 3d content it will output in 3d format. And that can either be in the older checkerboard format or the current format. If it's playing 2d material it will output in standard format and work with any tv it's connected to.
Yes if i put a regular blu-ray or dvd in can it be watched on a regular tv or is it always
going to be 3D(upconverted?).
- If you play a 2d disc, it will by default output 2d to whatever tv it is hooked up to.
- If you play a 3d disc, it will by default output 3d if it is hooked up to a 3d tv. Most 3d discs have the option to play back in 2d if you select it, and such discs will automatically play back in 2d when hooked uo to a 2d-only tv. Some 3d discs (such as disney 3d discs, and certain "exclusive" titles) only have the 3d version (they have 2d playback locked). Such discs will give you an error message that they require a 3d tv if they detect they are hooked up to a 2d tv.
- If your blu-ray player or tv have a "2d-3d conversion" option, a 2d disc can be played in "upconverted" as you put it (on-the-fly) 3d on a 3d tv.
