3D Compatibility check: PS3 > Denon AVR-1912 > Panasonic TC-P55VT30

post #1 of 3

My first attempt at setting up a new Panasonic TC-P55VT30 3DTV and Denon AVR-1912 with existing PS3 (slim - update current) was unsuccessful. Before I reset the AVR-1912 and start from scratch with batpig's FAQ, I'd like to know if others with similar setup are able to pass 3D bluray content thru the AVR-1912 to the 3DTV, or if I must bypass and go straight from the PS3 to the 3DTV.

This was my initial setup:

PS3 > AVR-1912 (2FT 24AWG high speed mono price HDMI)
Directv HR22-100 > AVR-1912 (2FT 24AWG high speed mono price HDMI)
____________
AVR-1912 > Kinivo HS420 4x2 HDMI matrix (2FT 24AWG high speed mono price HDMI)
____________
Kinivo HS420 4x2 HDMI matrix > Panasonic TC-P55VT30 3DTV (25FT 22AWG high speed mono price HDMI)
Kinivo HS420 4x2 HDMI matrix > Sony KDL-40XBR2 (40FT 24AWG standard speed mono price HDMI)

This worked fine until I popped in my first 3D blurry (Nightmare Before Xmas), and got the message that my display was not compatible (can't remember the exact wording). I did a search and learned that I needed to do an initial setup directly between the PS3 and the 3DTV. This worked and I continued to watch the movie.

When I switched back to my original setup, the 3D bluray again would not recognize my 3DTV as compatible. So, I took the HDMI matrix out of the equation and tried again. No dice. Then, I went back to plugging the PS3 directly to the 3DTV. WTF? Still no dice. I'm frustrated.

My next step, after reading batpig's Denon FAQ, is to reset the AVR-1912 and start over from scratch. However, if others know that 3D bluray playback is not possible from the PS3 > AVR-1912 > Panasonic TC-P55VT30, then I won't bother.

Please also note that the Sony Sony KDL-40XBR2 was always turned off and/or not connected when troubleshooting.

I would really appreciate anyone's incite. I've gone through so many threads and tried countless google searches. Either I'm not searching for the right thing, or my problem isn't very common.

OK, fixed my problem by resetting PS3 video settings and resetting up sources in Denon setup wizard. Now 3D passes thru receiver to tv. Win! Now to reintroduce the splitter...

PS3 3D BD works with splitter! However, Directv 3D channels don't. Hmmmmm.
