Thanks for the suggestion. I had spoken to a mover, and they mentioned it would be an extra $500 to $700 to crate my TV, so I was trying to find a more economical option. Do you happen to know how much they charged her for this?
I know this might be a long shot, but I bought a 73738 about nine months ago, and have just learned that I will be moving cross-country at the beginning of October. This means I'm going to have to entrust my nearly new TV to movers. Unfortunately, I didn't anticipate this move, and so I didn't keep my original box. I'd like to box it up nice and secure to move, I just don't know how without the original packaging.
Anyone out there in the general...

I tried all three with no luck today.
Just watched Christmas Carol and Toy Story 3 trailers in 3D on 73738 through Vudu with 12.06 firmware and using Panasonic 300 BR player. Had to set TV to side by side 3d mode manually, but worked fine.
Yes, that's exactly what I was able to do. It was based on some instructions I found way earlier in this thread somewhere. I'm not sure of the differences between the 2009 and 2010 remotes, but all of the buttons referenced in the 2009 document were there on the 2010 remote when I went to teach the Harmony the discreet codes.
In the Harmony software, I just taught the Harmony the appropriate code, named it something like HDMI2(1) for the HDMI2 input, and then remapped...

I know the discreet input codes work for the 738 series when you put the remote in 'direct' mode. I had to use them to program my Harmony to work right. I don't see why the other codes wouldn't work as well.

As far as wiring it all up... does this schematic look right? I want to have the ability to watch TV w/out the surround sound all the time. (This will be our main TV and I don't need my kids watching Hanna Montana & SpongeBob in 5.1 surround all the time).
Looking at your diagram, I would have a couple...

It's like the Harmony gives it a signal to switch inputs before the TV is ready to take it. I need a delay in there or something. ...
Yeah, I hear you, and this is just 'one man's opinion', but:
1. Even with the different nose pieces, they're just too heavy to feel comfortable for more than about 10 minutes,
2. I really don't like the idea of having to tweak my picture settings (from where I prefer them) just to get my 3d glasses to work right,
3. The room also has to be pretty much completely dark for the glasses not to lose sync,
Those, combined with my previous comments, and having a chance to try...
Just to add another opinion to the mix - I own the Viewsonic PCD-150 DLP Link glasses, and to be honest, they're really too heavy to be comfortable, at least for my wife and I. Also, the TV tends to like to switch out of DLP Link mode randomly, and out of reverse to standard randomly, so it's a bit of a pain to make sure everything's set 'right' and continues to be set 'right' as I watch 3D content, making the whole viewing experience less enjoyable for me.

Thanks for the input, Philly. I did send it in. My receipt (Amazon) shows both the purchase and 'Estimated Delivery' dates. I highlighted the estimated delivery date, to hopefully call their attention to it. So, we'll see what happens.
