I think Hollywood is releasing tons of 3D. Just not in the U.S.

I hear 3D is huge in China so Hollywood would release 3D version of a movie in China but not in the U.S., i.e., Noah.

For some...

How about:

5: run a digital optical/coax cable from the BD player out to the receiver input. Is that not an option?

EDIT: Just read PS3 is the BD player. I believe PS3 has digital optical out,...

Is "defective return ratio" a measure of initial quality or long-term reliability? I am thinking initial quality since one usually cannot return a TV after 30 days (usually, right?). If it's a...

You mean how well performing they appear to be. "Well built" implies reliability/durability. We should refrain from that phrase until after a year or so has passed. ;)

Ah, tricky thing that is. But I do agree that banning was an overreaction. He could have been suspended for several days and be allowed to come back. Permanent banning seems overly harsh.

Are you serious? So a dual-core, 4K upscaling capable 790 may not be able to do Netflix 3D that a lowly 5100 can do because of software? Since you proclaim yourself to be a software programmer, is...

Technically 790 is a 2012 model that was carried over into 2013 hence no Netflix 3D. I hear you though. 790 is more than capable of handling Netflix 3D so it's not technical limitation but utter...

I believe 3D-capable TV and BD players from model year 2013 and on should have Netflix 3D (and of course PS3).

My Sony S590 doesn't but S5100 from following year (2013) does. My son's Vizio TV...
