The tv does in fact have a 3D mode that allows me to turn it off and on as well as standard/reverse settings. It's also equipped with a 3D emitter port in the rear of the set. The emitter and glasses seem to be working so it may just come down to a Panasonic player. I've spent the day hitting up stores (both online and in person) but no one seems to carry the older model Pannys I'd require. I'm now looking through Panasonics website. The only other catch I have is that I'm still running analog surround. I may just be behind in the times. lol
Here's a list of Panasonic players that will work for me. If I'm missing any feel free mention them. DMP-BDT100, DMP-BDT110, DMP-BDT210, DMP-BDT215, DMP-BDT220, DMP-BTD300, DMP-BDT310, DMP-BDT321.
I'm afraid digging up one of these players is my last ditch effort before letting go of the 3D dream.
