I have a Samsung 3D display and a Samsung 3D player. I don't know if this helps any at all but I tend to use the display's 2d to 3d capability. It seems more direct to not involve the player. Actually I never thought to test each way to do it. Both components are top of the line but the display is a 2010 model and the player is 2011. So maybe the player would do better. I'll have to test that out. Maybe the most up to date, high end component is the way to go.
