The display is not compliant to HDMI 1.4a 3D; you will need the Mitsubishi 3D Adapter if you insists on HDMI 1.4a.
Mitsubishi 3DTVs (738 and 838 series) currently support the side-by-side 3D signal format. For support of other 3D formats, such as top-bottom and frame packing (3D Blu Ray standard), Mitsubishi 3DTVs will require the use of a 3D source device that outputs the 3D checkerboard format or a 3D source device coupled with the Mitsubishi 3D adapter. In all cases an emitter and matching 3D active shutter glasses or DLP Link active shutter glasses are required in order to view 3D content. Please refer to our web site www.mitsubsihi-tv.com
for the most current information.
The supported input formats are:
- Side-by-Side (960+960) x 1080i=1980 x 1080i for 3D broadcast
- Checkerboard for everything else (Blu-ray 3D, 2D-3D converted DVD/BD, 3D games)
So it supports only one
of the HDMI 1.4a 3D mandatory formats
. In particular it does not support BR 3D (Frame Packing, 1920x2160). Basically the display's HDMI is HDMI 1.3.
There are two ways to get 3D movies from this display.NVIDIA framework
PowerDVD 10 Mark II converts every 3D video signals (from BR 3D [frame packing], 2D-3D converted DVD/BD) to checkerboard, then the display converts it to 120Hz frame sequential and that works with a GeForce card and NVIDIA 3D Vision Kit.HDMI 1.4a frameworkMitsubishi 3D Starter Pack
- 3D Adapter (converts HDMI 1.4a 3D video signals to checkerboard [HDMI 1.3])
- 2 pair of 3D eyewear and matching emitter
PowerDVD 10 Mark II (with a future patch) outputs frame packing 3D video formats (1920x2160), the 3D Adapter converts it to checkerboard, then the display converts it to 120Hz frame sequential. The emitter and the glasses should work. As there is no graphics card that supports frame packing (1920x2160) right now, you will have to wait for a driver update. (NVIDIA 3DTV Play driver patch, ATI's driver patch etc.)
