Objective: To watch Blu-Ray movies in 3D.
Here is the hardware I have: Optoma HD-66, PS3 Slim, Monoprice 3D Creator, WDTV Live Player, Denon AVR-1712 (newly acquired).
I hooked up everything last night by connecting the HDMI "OUT" from PS3 to HDMI "IN" on the Monoprice, then "OUT" from Monoprice into the Denon. Also I went into the HD-66 menu and turned ON the 3D setting. I then put on the Batman Dark Knight blu-ray and Nemo DVD and played around with the red/blue glasses and realized I didn't really know what I was doing. I got a SBS image with the Dark Knight blu-ray, but w/o glasses it was for naught. So basically.....
1) Do I need anything else besides glasses and 3D media?
2) Will the Monoprice get me the same results as a Optoma 3D-XL? Or should I spring for the 3D-XL since I get a pair of free glasses?
3) Do I need a separate Blu-Ray Player if I stick with the Monoprice? If so, which one?
I'm sorry for the questions. I looked up as much info as I could on the forum here, but it's easy to get confused. I am actually quite knowledgeable when it comes to home audio, but 3DTV requires some schooling from those who know better.
