Yes but you need to turn on the DLP Link feature in the 3D menu.

I didn't know some glasses could cause a "green tint" I tried out the Mitsubishi Xpands at Paul's and the picture looked nice and clear. I need at least two glasses. Am I being too picky by wanting ones that don't have an external emitter? or can I get a better picture with those that require an external emitter?

Do the xpand universal 103 work with the internal emitter as well? The way the manual is worded it appears they do.

Sorry for all the questions, I just don't want to drop $$$$ on some glasses that either don't work with my TV or make the image look like Junk.

Thanks again,

I got the Xpand because that is what is "authorized" and recommended by Mitsubishi. I didn't want any compatibility issues. They also include 2 extra batteries in the package.

The Xpand will darken the image on the screen so you will have to brighten the setting on the TV. While it will look "too brite" without the glasses, after putting them on it will look "just right".

3D content over the air (cable) will work fine but BluRay 3D will experience "judder". This is Mitsubishi's response:

"We are working on a software update that will address the 3D performance issue. It will also add the ability to stream 3D Vudu content.

ETA on the update is in the next week or two.

I apologize for the inconvenience and we are working to resolve this. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Rumor has it Xpand will be releasing the X104 glasses later this year which will have rechargeable batteries....if you can wait.

Metallicats33,
Just a note. I've owned the Wd-73740 for a couple of months now and I also did not want to dump a lot of $ on unknown glasses with unknown formats. Mitsubishi was not much help either.
I would strongly suggest checking out http://www.dimensionaloptics.com/default.aspx
The ceo Steve will gladly walk you through any questions and make sure your absolutely happy with your purchase. You will have to use an external emitter with these glasses but they ARE rechargeable and you can also select different color schemes if you so desire.

It is a few hours later, but I am assuming you tried them. How'd it look? What type(s) of 3D did you try?

Finally got to use them, got home at 9:40 and the wife said she was watching private practice on the new tv so far I've played some ps3 games and watched some 3d movies trailers. Looks great, the xpand 103 universals work just fine with the internal emitter but I had to set the glasses to 4 blinks (Toshiba tv's) for them to work
So far im satisfied, I've never used active glasses before but I think this looks better than the passive 3d in the theaters.

If you end up picking up Transformers: Dark of the Moon tomorrow, I'd be curious how that looks on the 40 series. It was some of the best 3D I'd ever seen in the theater (IMAX), just curious how it translated.

I was planing on getting it, we also saw it in the theaters and are curious if it will look just as good or better. Im still messing with the glasses, seams they work on setting 5 as well (phillips) does anyone else have the 103 universals? What settings do you use for your's?
I find it strange that the Mitsubishi manual list them as compatible glasses but the glasses don't work on the mistubishi setting...

Transformers: DOTM's 3D release isn't till the end of November. Bay wanted to make sure he could get it done right for home 3D or as I call it, Milk you for every cent twice. Today is just the Plain Jane movie. All the extras and 3D is 11-30 release date.

Cool Beans.

The Mitsubishi setting shown in the X103 instructions is for the external IR emitter that Mitsubishi sells in their starter kit that has an adapter.

These emitters were for TVs from last year and before. The X103 glasses were introduced last year as well so the included paperwork would indicate the setting for Mitsubishi as the setting for that external IR emitter.

This year Mitsubishi built the IR emitter into the TV but they also changed the IR protocol to the new M3Di IR protocol (a new industry standard instead of manufacturer exclusive) which is different than the older Mitsubishi external IR emitter.

The new protocol is also compatible with the Panasonic setting in the glasses.

However since the glasses were introduced last year and the printed material is from that time, the included instructions would not list the new Mitsubishi settings.

I wouldn't buy from here. Personally I don't know this company but call the number and it doesn't sound like a business phone and these websites are a dime a dozen with scams.

I bought a 73740 from Pauls this week for a good deal. They had a good sale and was better than this seller and authorized. I talked to them on Monday and called back to order Tuesday but my rep was off and he called me backed to thank me for my purchase tonight and said the price has gone up again since my purchase and was glad I got in on the deal. Expect my tv Tuesday or Wednesday. Also bought the Mitsubishi stand for this on Amazon/Walts for this since Pauls did not have it. Getting antsy waiting for all to deliver.

WARNING!!!!


The site is a scam and the TV they are selling is a scam. Mitsubishi has that company listed as an unauthorized reseller:

I've has the same issue with my 73740. Generally, I change the setting to something on HDMI 1 (that's my input from my receiver) before I turn the TV off. When I start it up, I start the same source and then switch to another input if I need to

I've got a laptop hooked up to the HDMI port, but the laptop doesn't recognize that it's hooked up to the tv if I start up the tv on that input, which is why I always start with something on HDMI 1. I'll start the TV, wait for it to start up and wit until I hear the Windows "chime" that indicates that it's recognizing the HDMI input. Then I switch to HDMI 2 (which is labeled "PC" on the set).

The only problem I seem to have is that my PS3, which is hooked directly to HDMI 3 since I don't have HDMI 4.0 on my receiver, that the Harmony remote will not change the TV input to HDMI 3 even though the remote is set to use the HDMI3 command. I still haven't been able to figure that one out, so I have to keep the Mitsubishi remote around and change it manually using the menu when I want to use it.

Has anyone else had the same problem with HDMI3?

FWIW, I'm using a Harmony 890, but I'm not sending the TV signal through the wireless emitter - just direct infrared.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Well I got another question, I just noticed last night a black spot on the screen. Its definitely not on the outside and it resembles a dead pixle but bigger. What could this be? No one else in my house could see it until I pointed it out but I know where it is and now everytime the image gets light in that area it jumps right out at me.

Has anyone heard much about the Panasonic 310 3D player? Thinking about getting it to go with the 82740. Thanks!

Just received my WD73740 today and setting it up. I have the Panasonic 310 also. The 310 has two HDMI outputs. I had it set up using only one HDMI out with my Samsung DLP and it worked fine. Today during setup, the 310 would keep on changing the 3D out from checkerboard back to HD. I am running all devises thru my Onkyo TX-NR3008. After a couple of hours messing around of using the one HDMI port directly to the receiver I tried using the 2nd HDMI port and running the audio only to the receiver and the video directly to the TV from the Panasonic 310. It worked just fine with no problems. The 310 is a very nice player. The remote is great, never learned how to use a remote so fast. I don't understand why the player did not recognize the Onkyo 3D HDMI 4.1 compatible. I like the 310, would rate it 4.5. Also like the hand passover the top of it to open the DVD drawer and also close it. Except when I am dusting the top it will always open up and turn on the player, really just a minor issue.

I received my 73740 today and playing with it. I wonder if someone could help with the calibration settings. I am partially color blind and always had to rely on someone else with the color/warm settings when watching a movie. So I am hoping someone would post their settings so I could set them up on my TV. I know this will take a several minutes out of someones time but I do need the help. I have seen them for the 73738 forum but not here. Much appreciated.
