Is there any real difference between these 2 projectors other than who can sell them. The specs look the sme
I haven't followed the whole discussion to check for workarounds, but all may not be lost even as things are now (although a person may have to jump through some hoops to get it to work).
I have an RS40 and had it hooked up through a receiver that is a couple of years old (pre 1.4). I tried playing the football game that is currently on ESPN3D and got an error that my display wasn't 3D. So I disconnected the HDMI cable coming out of my audio receiver and plugged it straight into an HR22. Then I watched a little bit of the football in 3D without even thinking about any resolution issues. The 3D seemed to be working fine, although I didn't test it for long. I then switched over to a Jessica Simpson 3D show I had recorded earlier and watched it for a few minutes (much of it looked like it was 2D without the glasses on and then the image separation would come in and go away sometimes). I switched back to the football game and was surprised to get an error that my display doesn't support 720p 3D (or maybe it said 720p SBS) and I got no picture.
So, I started again with the football game going through the receiver and got back to the error about my display not being 3D. When I moved the HDMI cable to go straight from the HR22 to the RS40 I again got to watch the game in 3D. I noticed that a message came up saying the signal was 1080i SBS and I believe this message was from the RS40. And the light on the HR22 for res said 1080i. Going to the Jessica Simpson concert and then back again resulted in not being able to watch the game, but instead getting the error about not supporting 720p. And pushing the res button on the HR22 did nothing (the light stayed on 1080i).
BTW: I assume I can watch the game this way with TOSLink for audio, but didn't try hooking up the audio for this as I don't really plan to watch the game. I do want to be ready for the national championship game though.
