I've been meaning to buy a Blu Ray player but after blowing all my savings on this projector it's just not in my budget. Thankfully there's plenty of 1080p content available on the internet; even though the quality isn't as good it's still better than DVD.

That only applies to Frame Sequential 3D (a.k.a. Full HD 3D). When using TaB/SbS/Checkerboard, it doesn't matter what connection you use, since it requires no more bandwidth than a 2D 1080p picture. Even VGA would work for this type of 3D. This should help you understand:
2D 1080p: 2,073,600 pixels rendered
3D 1080p, TaB/SbS/ChkrBrd: 2,073,600 pixels rendered (or ~1,036,800 per eye)
3D 1080p, Frame Seq: 4,147,200 pixels rendered (or 2,073,600 per eye)
3D 720p, Frame Seq: 1,843,200 pixels rendered (or 921,600 per eye)
Now you can see why Frame Sequential 3D requires HDMI 1.4, since it uses twice the bandwidth as 2D. However, 1.4 only supports Frame Seq 1080p @24Hz, which is fine for movies but unacceptable for games. HDMI 2.0 will include support for full 1080p 3D, so cutting the resolution in half per eye in order to obtain 1080p 3D will soon be a thing of the past.
When it comes to 720p, since it doesn't require as much bandwidth you can use Frame Sequential 3D just fine and still get 60Hz. And like I said before, only Frame Seq requires HDMI 1.4. I would advise against running this projector @720p, though, because it makes the image quite muddy. From personal experience 1080p TaB is the way to go to get the sharpest 3D picture on this projector @60Hz.Edited by Psythik - 7/22/13 at 6:25pm
