The ps3 is what makes the projector go into frame packing 3d mode (which is what blu-rays do). So I would start looking for a setting in the ps3. The w1070 detects this mode automatically even though there is no setting for it.

Thanks, Flint, I will play around with the PS3 settings next time I visit.
I will also take along my spare (Panasonic) 3D Blu ray player to test this theory.
