I hope someone can help me here. LONG time reader first time poster. I just received a 90es. So far love it. Glad I got it , not a bad price. Anyways the question

I hook to blu ray player and play a 3d movie works perfect.

Hook to Apple TV and steam sbs 3d and all I get is 2pics side by side. The troubleshooting says to manually enter 3d mode and then select side by side or top bottom. My menu only lists simulated and top bottom. No side by side.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a known problem. I'm not sure what causes it but it happens with my PS3 when I want to watch You Tube SBS half. Exactly as you described. A couple of times I was able to get it to work but I couldn't tell you what I did to make the SBS appear in the projector menus. I finally got a WDTV streaming box and that works. The big difference is that the PS3 limits 3D output to 720p while the WDTV allows for full HD at 1080p. If the Apple TV does the same, limit the output of SBS to 720p then that may be the problem.

Now, when I want to watch a SBS You Tube video, I have a macro that with one click on my remote control, pushes the Sony Projector into SBS mode. Once the movie is over, I have another macro that switches back to 3D AUTO. The WDTV box isn't as well known as the Roku or Apple but it is less money and has good apps for all the major players and is 3D compatible. I love Vudu 3D and Netflix 3D through it. Both are sent to the Projector as Frame Packed signals so the box does some conversion. YT is the only one I have to switch to SBS.

I found this review to be helpful. My room is an extremely dark Theater room with flat black front wall and ceiling with brown flat walls. This reviewer lists specific stock settings he felt gets this unit to produce a great picture. I am not an expert but the picture does look phenomenal. I was planning to hire someone to set it up but I am pleased so far with what this accomplished for me.
