Run through the PS3 setup just like you did
Also make sure in the Optoma menu that the correct 3D setting is selected. (for us it was VESA)
Then I knew going into this that my current Pioneer Elite VSX03 THX was not a 1.4 HDMI 3D pass-through receiver so I had to run a separate HDMI cable from the PS3 to the HDMI 2 of the Optoma; then a Optical cable to the receiver from the PS3.
Make sure you turn off the audio of the Optoma
At this point the whole system should operate automatically.
We have watched Despicable ME and Jurassic Park so far in 3D in Eco mode and with no ambient light I find that the slight dimness from the glasses does not detract from the movie. your eyes adjust after a few minutes so you will never know.
As for a response to HUNGARY regarding HD25 after a bit of use:
I have had my HD25 running at least 2 hours a day for the last 3 weeks and I absolutely love it! My room is smaller, 15 x 17 and I have the projector shelf mounted upside down at the top of the rear ceiling shining on a Elite Sable 120" fixed screen. The room is a dark green with a black ceiling and I have acoustic treatment to either side of the screen and curtains over that. I replaced a ceiling fan with dimmable track lighting for now and even with the track lights at half brightness (enough to eat and see everything) The screen looks great! It complete darkness of course, everything pops out and while I have never seen a really high dollar home projector I am very satisfied with the HD25. Blacks are very good, I am sure with some tweaking I can get them a touch better but in a dark room any bars are not noticeable enough to detract from the movie experience. Cable looks good and Netflix looks very good as well.
I pulled my initial calibration settings from online and I do really like these settings and would recommend this to anyone just getting started. Once I reach 200 hours I will go through Spears and Munsil Version 2 and see if there is any fine tweaking to do. My settings for normal watching and 3D watching are the same and I think in 3D it looks just as good. Like I said before, there is a slight dimming from putting 3D glasses on but even I never saw it go to the point where I wanted to turn the projector to Active Mode and I forgot about it as soon as the movie started.
In Eco mode the projector is silent. It sits about 6 feet up and 4 feet behind me and I cant hear it. Even in 3D mode which does turn it up a bit, I still cant hear it. I would recommend in smaller rooms to insulate the rear, upper, corners of the room because the fan does send an echo that can be slightly annoying. I am pretty sure this would happen to every projector on the market in a small room.
Once College football starts I will get a chance to see what this thing can do with a side sliding glass door uncovered and ambient light at the same time. I think it will perform wonderfully.
Here is my calibration settings for anyone interested.
DISPLAY MODE: USER
COLOR: 9 TINT: 2 (I couldn't find these so they are default for me)
NOISE REDUCTION: 0
BRILLIANT COLOR: 1 (Brilliant color and dynamic black greatly increase projector computing and make it much louder. if calibrated you don't need these features. just think of them as artificial and something you don't want anyway)
DYNAMIC BLACK: OFF
COLOR TEMPERATURE: WARM
COLOR SETTINGS: NUMBERED: HUE, SATURATION, GAIN
RED: 0, -1, -10
GREEN: 10, -2, -3
BLUE: 10, 0, -22
CYAN: 8, -4, -3
MAGENTA: 19, 4, -16
YELLOW: 20, -7, 4
WHITE: RED-(0), GREEN-(0), BLUE-(-1)
COLOR SPACE: AUTO
