I haven't posted in a long while but I always check this forum as my #1
source before any A/V purchase/problems.
I installed the PJ @ 1 month ago. Setting up the 3D wasn't the easiest. The BD player (one of the newer Sony. @ 1 year old model I bought 5-6 months ago) was displaying a message that it didn't detect that it was connected to a 3D display. I honestly don't remember how I did it, but I fumbled around and eventually got it to work. I also don't remember setting up the 3D option but it was set to "Auto" and displayed 3D when I would play a 3D Blu Ray. Watched 4 or 5 movies in 3D. Very impressive. Until 2 nights ago.
I popped Avatar in the BD player to show (off)
a friend and... nothing. 3D option was set to "Off". In the 3D menu, only available options were "Off" and "Top-Bottom". Turned everything off and back on. Nothing. If I ejected the Blu Ray disc and put it back in, and then brought up the PJ Menu, it had Frame Packing, Top-Bottom, and SbS options available (and Off...). But no "Auto". I chose Frame Packing but the image was awful. Definitely not 3D. I don't know what "top-Bottom" looks like but that's what it felt to me. (See images)
I ruled out the receiver and the splitter as the cause as I took them out of the equation by plugging the BD player directly into the PJ. (I use "higher end" Monoprice HDMI cables.). Same issue. "Auto" options greyed out.
The Sony BD player is set up on Auto when it comes to 3D
If anybody in this extremely knowledgeable crowd has a solution or suggestions, I'd be very grateful to hear them.
Thank you in advance.
