Yes, I am using a 3D Ready TV (mitsu) and the Mitsubishi 3DC-1000 start kit.
Games play just fine but I cannot play 3D Blu-ray with my 1.3 AVR. I just get 3d video without any audio being received. I edited my post above to contain more info that the receiver "Signal Info" screen provided.
It seems that when I am watching a 3D Blu-ray (passing through 1.3 AVR) I am getting full 1080p 3d video, but no audio is getting "locked in". It is finding and losing it multiple times per second. I don't know if this is from not confirming that I have high speed hdmi cables, not using a 1.4 avr or ??
I ask since I have the 3D converter to my DLP and no, PS3 3D games do not pass-thru my 1.3 reciever - just audio.
I've been playing 3d games since July with my 1.3 avr. Video and audio (7.1) works great) FWIW, I am using a Yamaha 1065 AVR.
My 4 x 2 switch arrived yesterday so this weekend I'm going to try it.
But I just read the PS3 3D for BD will NOT allow HD audio output.
From the Sony PS3 Update page:
When Dolby TrueHD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in Dolby Digital during playback of Blu-ray 3D content.
When DTS-HD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in DTS during playback of Blu-ray 3D content.
Correct but you can still enjoy standard dolby digital/DTS. I know this disappointed me thoroughly as well.
I guess if I want the full deal I'll have to purchase a stand alone blu-ray player. No worries, I'm happy the PS3 does 3D games well.
Or could I simply upgrade the AVR to a 1.4 3D capable model? (sorry if this is what the thread is all about) I suppose that would be the easiest solution.. except I just bought this AVR last spring.
