Question regarding 3d on Cox Cable - how to set LG 55LW5300 to top-bottom

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a LG55LW5300 tv. I have cable service through Cox cable and noticed they have some 3d stuff in their On Demand section.

However, the content is in top-bottom mode. I've noticed with some of my inputs I can get the TV to allow me to choose between the different versions of 3d. However, when I have it set to my cable box, the top-bottom and left-right are both grayed out. So, how do I force my TV to allow me to choose top-bottom?

It seems really weird that in the one instance where I actually need top-bottom, it is no longer available. Yet, when the picture isn't top-bottom and therefore that choice is completely unnecessary, it shows as a choice.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you have your box connected via HDMI? I have the 55lw5600 and I can access those options only whn connected through HDMI. I also have cox but my content is SBS not top bottom. (HBO and the Free 3D content).

Yes, it is plugged in via HDMI. We have the whole-home DVR and it is isn't through the host box, it is through one of the other HD DVR boxes that receives its programming through the host box. Do you think that could be part of it?

That could be the issue

Its an auto format issue with the HDMI sync and the TV will not allow you to choose those formats unless it thinks its 720p or 1080i/p. Set the output to a fixed resolution of 720p or 1080i instead of auto and it should work fine.

I purchased the exact same tv over a week ago but I have comcast. HDDVR, HDMI hook up like you etc. Mine was the same way so I called and was told I needed a 3D HDDVR so that could be the issue as well.

When viewing 3D content through the cable VOD i have top/bottom and SBS options

good luck
