anyone using a 3dbee in conjunction with a radiance? if so, you got the bee before or after the radiance?
i'm thinking after will be best, but was wondering if anyone has any feedback?
I posted this in the Lumagen thread, but it might be useful to share it here as well:
During the period that I tested a 3D-Bee, I routed my Blu-ray player to an HDMI switcher. One output of the switcher went direct to the Radiance, and the other went to the 3D-Bee, which was then in turn connected to a different input on the Radiance.
The 3D-Bee will passthrough 2D video from Blu-ray or will convert it to 3D, but will not passthrough real 3D content. If you expect to watch genuine Blu-ray 3D discs, you'll need an option to bypass the 3D-Bee.
If you only have one HD display (with multiple HDMI inputs), instead of using a switcher like I did, you could connect your Blu-ray player to the Radiance, and then have one HDMI output from the Radiance go directly to your TV and the other to the 3D-Bee (which would go to the TV separately). That didn't work for me, because my Radiance is connected to two displays and already uses both HDMI outputs.
If it helps, I have a color-coded visual illustration of my connection map here
