I just got an optoma pro360w projector. I found out it is 3D capable so I got a 3D bluray dvd player.
I'm now learning there needs to be a convertor between the two.
Is there a convertor that will work for use with the projector AND my 2D HDTV?

Check out the HD Fury 4. I don't have one myself but I'm tempted to buy one.

There are a couple of converters available. The Optoma 3D-XL comes to mind and you can search it out on AVSFORUM/Amazon. It converts 3D between a 3D game player or 3D bluray to a 3D capable projector, but will not create a 3D image on a 2D TV. If all you want to do is watch 2D from your 3D blu-ray player, then you won't have a problem anyway, just plug it into the 2D HDTV. The player will put out a 2D signal. If you want to watch 3D on a 2D TV, there is a converter that will do that, but I've used it and it does a poor job--lots of flickering and ghosting from my experience. You can search for that as well in these forums.

Edit Note: I have not used the Fury, but it looks interesting--pricey though. The site says it is not recommended for 50/60 hz LCDs--which, I'm guessing is what your 2D HDTV is.
