What 3d tv models have passive 3d for split screen --> dual full screen?? (gaming)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Sorry for the obnoxiously long title but it pretty much asks the question. I'm looking to buy a used 3d tv. But I'm finding hard to see which 3d tv's are 3d passive and then make a dual screen game into a full screen (overlayed).

Is there a list somewhere?

Thanks!

I have a Toshiba 55TL515U, but I think any Passive 3DTV from LG, Toshiba, or Vizio will work as long as it supports Top and Bottom and Side by Side 3D modes, I think they all do. I have been doing this with games on both the Xbox and PS3 with my 3DTV. Be aware you can buy LGs Dual Play Glasses for a RR and LL set, or make your own using some hacked movie glassed (see my thread below)....

How do you find which tv's have passive 3d? For example there's an add for LG 55LW5000. I tried looking on the specs on the lg websiteand it says it has cinema 3d, but I couldn't find anything that says yes or no to passive

I think all the LG 3DTVs called Cinema 3D are Passive, in the specs it says it has FPR 3D panel, which is passive.

I believe you are looking for something like "Dual View" where the Left eye view is one game player's view and the Right eye view is a second game player's view. The orginal signal is a split screen either side-by-side or top bottom.

The objective is to use full screen for each player and not have the player able to see the other player's screen AND still use one TV.

Almost all 3D TVs have manual side-by-side or top/bottom settings that will display as you want. That is not really a TV issue, the issue is glasses.

For passive (polarized) 3D TVs, you need to find glasses that have two lenses that are polarized for left view only and another pair that have two lenses polarized for right view only. These are not sold. You might be able to break apart a couple of pair of glasses and swap lenese across but because a left lenses is not the same shape as a right lenses, they will not fit in the frames very well.

For active 3D TVs, you need glasses that have settings for 3D, Dual View A (left view only) and Dual View B (right view only). These are also hard to buy and even near impossible for most people to make at home.

Cure Mode did explain what to do with the glasses. So now im wondering if the LG BX327 can do dual view. Anyone, anyone?!

In the features section it looks like it can!

Actually, they do sell dual play glasses for LG's LM8600 models and higher TVs. Or you can make them yourself. Its super easy. Just take two passive 3D glasses and pop out all the lens using a phillips flathead screwdriver. Put all the left lenses onto one pair and the right lenses onto the other(they should pop out easily).

This is an old topic, but it is something I am trying to do, unsuccessfully at the moment. I have a new panasonic LED 3D tv (TCL55ET60) that I just can't get this dual view or dual play function to work. Trying to with a PS3 game, Black Ops 2. There is a setting in the game for dual play, I have it turned on, it works for a brief moment then switches back to split screen. 

 

It is a passive 3d screen, just not sure if there is something I am missing to do this right.
