Can I trick a Blu-ray player to show 3D?
I have bought a new tv without 3D, and that means I have a problem. I have a Geffen kit with HDMI over CAT for my 3D JVC projector, and with that the player doesn't read that there is a 3D capable display in the system. Yesterday I actually fooled it by putting a long power extension cable on the Panasonic Blu-ray player, connecting it directly to the projector, getting into the disk menu (past the 3D check), disconnecting it and carrying it over to it's normal place, where it goes into the receiver, hook up the HDMI there and the normal cable to the projector and starting the movie. It worked flawlessly, so 3D is obviously transmitted over the Geffen kit, it just doesn't see it as 3D capable. Is it possible to trick the player, or do I need a new HDMI over CAT kit? And if I do, will any kit that supports 4K also support 3D in 1080p?
