Samsung BD-J5700ZA 3D Capable or not??

Hi all,


I hope everybody had a Merry Christmas. I asked for and Santa delivered a new Samsung BD-J5700ZA 3D Blu Ray Player..


Now I noted it did not mention 3D on the Box any where so Berfore I was going to open it up I checked the Manual directly off the Samsung Website.. In the manual it did not mention if it was 3D Capable anywhere in there..


Now on the Samsung website where the specs are it says it is?? so I am trying to confirm is this BluRay 3D Capable or not as I have 2 conflicting spots saying 2 different things??


I was going to call Samsung tomorrow but figured I would try here and might get an answer before tomorrow..


I also wanted to know do I need a 3D Capable receiver or will a Reciever with HDMI Passthrough will it pass the 3D signal or do I need a 3D Ready Receiver if I hook the Projector and blu ray to the Receiver..


Thank you
Nephilim'

No apparently it is not 3D capable. The J5900, J7500 and J6300 are. As for 3D pass through. If your receiver does 1.4 pass through, then should. Experience from a lot of users regarding pass through is that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. You just have to try and see. If not, you'll need an hdmi splitter to get the sound to the receiver and the other directly to the projector. Or use optical out from the bluray if it has it to the receiver, but you won't get full sound with optical.

Here is the Samsung spec sheet: http://www.samsung.com/us/system/con...et_3-30-15.pdf No mention of 3D. But if you look at the other models, they clearly say 3D in the specs.

However, their main page has all the model and it states that the J5700 has 3D--but I think that's a typo. http://www.samsung.com/us/television...1+hv1ui+zq20b/

Ahh, the New Year, and new toys...err...technology to play with. I'm just curious as to your curved screen and new material. Is that homemade rig?

Well the Curved screen is on my PC I play Games on like DCS World and such. The screen was DIY but the material I used is called Sintra..


I also bought similar material for my Home Theater screen off ebay.. it seems to be the same as Sintra but thinner..
