I know you mentioned it was 2D->3D that you tested. The HT author stated that his results were the same with the conversion mode and also with a true 3D frame packed signal. Obviously this needs to be validated further.
One of our members made an excellent '3d Demo disk' with the L/R patterns that have been used in many of the 3D reviews and also a 100% IRE field that can be used to measure in 3D mode. I'll ask his permission to see if we can distribute the ISO and possibly burn to BD for those that need a disc. I have tons of blank 25 GB BDR's.
Ron - the HW30 stays at about the same lumen output in 3D mode as it is in 2D mode, ~900 lumens. Why is the VW1000 dropping to nearly 1/2 the 2D output?
