Your Sony is a true 3D Bluray player, and any HDMI cable listed as "High Speed" should meet the specs for 3D signal transmission. Check the labels on the movie packaging to see if they mention anything about "red/blue" or "red/cyan" glasses. If they do, they're not the type of 3D movie you want.
Here are the 2 movies:
I bought both movies used.
I think you are onto something with the red / blue glasses. The movie Final Destination came with a pair of paper 3-D glasses that have one red lens and one green lens. I tried them and the 3-D effect is there, but it looks awful, IMO. I just "assumed" that the Vizio 3-D glasses would work as well. But they don't. One of the Amazon reviewers complained about this fact:
I have a 3D TV and bought this Blu-Ray disc based on Amazon's product description that stated "To watch this movie in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television that comes with active-shutter glasses and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player". When it arrived I was a bit concerned to see that it came with two pairs of red and green filtered glasses and there was no mention of 3D TVs on the box. There were two discs though, so I hoped one of them contained a proper 3D movie for 3D TVs - No such luck so I returned it, which to Amazon's credit, was a very simple experience actually. I just printed out a UPS return label from Amazon's website and dropped it off at my nearest UPS Store and hopefully they're paying for it. Amazon needs to change their product description otherwise they're going to get a lot of returns.
The other movie, Cats and Dogs was supposed to come with 3 discs, but I only got 2. So I think maybe I didn't get the 3-D version.
I didn't know there were so many formats for 3-D. So at the end of the day, chalk it up to a combination of ignorance, stinginess, bad luck, and operator error.
Problem solved, thanks for the help.Edited by losamigos - 10/4/12 at 9:49am
