My receiver doesn't do 3D passthrough so I'm just going player > tv so I know it's not an issue there. The player definitely does 3D as well. I've tested multiple high speed cables and none have solved the issue and they were of differing manufacturers so it's not an issue with one cable. The transmitter appears to be working OK - I can see the red LEDs illuminated in it so I can only assume it's doing what it's supposed to be doing.
I've tested a number of discs. Life of Pi gives me the message that "Your Blu-ray 3D player has not detected that is connected to a 3D display" which would seem to indicate its an issue with the display. On Sony 2D/3D discs it defaults to 2D playback. The 3D menu options are there on the Sony TV menu so it's picking up that the transmitter's there but the only options are the simulated 3D ones.
The only thing I can think of is the glasses. I've only got one pair at the moment as my other
setup is a Panasonic projector and their glasses don't function with the Sony TV. If there was
an issue with the glasses I'm wondering whether the transmitter can detect that it's not
synced to glasses and therefore the 3D option doesn't present itself. I think I've exhausted
all other potential options that I can come up with.
If anyone's got any suggestions I'd definitely appreciate it!
not sure, you can test all the hdmi high speed cables you want but I believe, Sony used only HDMI 1.4a I think, some 1.3 ?.?.
though some might work ok for a while.
my quote: do not go through the quick menu options for the 3D use the
main menu and be sure it is set for 3D input turned on auto detect. the quick menu is for simulated 3D or
3D broadcast pic over/under; pic side by side and only simulated 3D.
it has been a while and since I have upgraded to hx850.
you may also need to have TV set to HDMI 1 or '2 may not work' (3D will not work through RGB cables (disconnect them)) you also have
built in i-manual and it may help direct you.
make sure you have the software on both the TV and BR player up to date.Edited by eaamon - 9/11/13 at 1:35pm
