Sometimes my Mits doesn't detect the 3d movie when set on automatic
and I never know what to set it too manually when it doesn't work.

Are all BluRay 3d movies T/B ?

Thanks

Frame sequential is the input formate most 720p 3D ready projectors use. Blu-ray 3D is Frame Packing.

The format of 3D BD is called Frame Packing. You are looking at a single frame which contains two 1920x1080 frames, one for each eye:



Active Shutter Glasses LCD and PDPs use the frame sequental method. First the left frame, then the right frame.



Active Shutter Glasses DLP RPTVs convert the two frames to the checkerboard 3D format because that is the format they use to display 3D:

Passive Polarized Glasses LCDs convert the two frames to the Hortizontial Interleave 3D format because that is the format they use to display 3D:



There are two other 3D formats used besides Frame Packing (only 3D BD uses this). They are called Frame Compatible 3D formats because they use the same bandwidth that HD uses. This results in less than Full HD per eye.

SbS 1080i - each frame is 960x1080i:





Top/Bottom 720P - each frame is 1280x360P



There are two different 3D "formats." The first is what the signal is using and the second is what the 3DTV is using to diplay the left and right images.
