another question about the glasses. Is it possible to use both dlp link and the emitter glasses at the same time?

Why are you so sure that the HDMI chips in these TV's are not 1.4 compliant after the software update? The PS3 gained 1.4 compliance after a firmware update.
DirecTV now sees my TV as a 1.4 compliant device as does my PS3. These specific devices would not output 3D unless they detect a 1.4 device and there is no manual override to do so.
I just don't believe these TV's are displaying 2D in checkerboard. This can be tested using a test pattern.
I don't claim to be an expert and I will let more informed forum members chime in. Please let me know if you have some links, etc explaining what you are saying. I'm not trying to have a debate or offend you but there seems to be too much assuming in your post.
Didn't see this at first. This article is much more informative:
Basically the TV now supports all mandatory 1.4a 3D formats and detects them via a flag in the signal.
From page 2:
"All HDMI 1.4a 3D compliant signals include flags that will inform the TV
what type of 3D signal is being sent."
Whether these TV's have HDMI 1.4 chips in them or emulate 1.4 compliance via software like the PS3 I don't know. However I think it is safe to say they are 1.4a compliant.
Would you say the PQ on these sets is better than last years models? I am considering the 60". Bestbuy no longer carries these, so I cannot look at these first hand. I would have to go off last years online reviews and apply any feedback to that.
I will also say I have a Sammy 40 "LCD and been looking at 50" plasmas.
You can't upgrade HDMI's version with firmware. It's hardware.
The PS3 outputs 3d, but it's still HDMI 1.3. These TV probably use similar 1.3 tricks to allow 3D, but they're still 1.3.
So what I'm seeing from this information, is if the signal is 3d, for example through 1080p60 checkerboard, SBS, or T/B and the device is not outputting 3d flags, just a regular old 1080p60 signal, then automatic won't work right? For example, if I loaded up a SBS video or game on my PC. It wouldn't be sending 3d flags, but it would still be SBS 3d.
