Does anyone play their 3D content via a media server?
I have never been too fond of 3D movies but since all my hardware seems to support it, I decided to give it a try.
I am using XBMC to stream movies to the 8000 via a Denon 3313ci. I have several 3D titles ripped into .mkv or BDMV containers.
The problem is while XBMC does recognize the 3D format just fine, the movie plays top-bottom and all I can see is the two halfs on the screen. It does not look 3D at all. Just the movie split in two. Like you'd expect if weren't wearing 3D glasses.
I am using the cheap but good Incredisonic Vue Series VSUI-1600 glasses every one recommended to work well with the 8000. And in fact they do. If I set the projector to convert 2D to 3D the 3D comes through just fine.
It is as though the Panasonic is not detecting the 3D content of the stream. I have the 3D menu set to AUTO. If I manually set it to top-bottom, THEN, everything goes 3D.
I do not own a blueray player so I can't test with anything else, but I'd have expected this projector will flip onto 3D mode if the content was 3D. Does it not?
Any one seen this happening? or have any suggestions?
