To 3D Or Not To 3D
Hey Rob, glad to see you're using/enjoying the 3D: ) Question for you (and anyone else for that matter)...
Have you run into the 3D "corruption" issue this TV exhibits? I played my first 3D film yesterday and was nearly heartbroken at how horrible the 3D was on it. I went to a lot of trouble to get a Z9D, in part due to the fact that it was as you say--one of the last 3D TVs out there.
I started up Jurassic World: FK and immediately noticed something was quite wrong. In PDVD I switched to "right eye first" and it helped but it was still messed up. I tried two different sets of glasses, different movies, and went from PC to PS3 trying to get it to work right but to no avail.
First I thought it was an issue with my TV (given the way I got it, off kijiji, I didn't really have any recourse). I searched online though and found this seems to be a common problem for this set.
I had the exact same problem--bad crosstalk almost as if the glasses were not synced properly despite me seeing them "turn on", and a really
annoying flicker at the top 1/4 of the screen. Basically unwatchable. I was thinking maybe it was a "broken" feature as what I'd heard about the X930D, but as can be seen in some of those links above^ people were saying the TV just needed an [Android] restart from the menu (not a regular power cycle or a factory reset but an Android system reset). I found this hard to believe and was really fretful the TV just had borked 3D.
I then tried this "trick" of restarting the Android system and though I was skeptical...it worked!!! 3D looks fine now. A little bit of crosstalk (and I'd actually say more than my old HX750) but it's active 3D so I guess some is too be expected; but much
better than it was and no horrendous flicker. It seems almost as if the set messes up the 3D if you have too many resources taken up in the Android system?
Have any other 3D users experienced this? It seems like if you go to use the Android apps you will run into this problem again and have to restart before every 3D viewing? It doesn't harm any settings (again this is not a factory reset) but seems to be somewhat roundabout. I also heard on the newer f/w this has been fixed? Can anyone confirm? I'm going to upgrade my set to Oreo (as I don't think it will affect me and my old-skool AVR) but are there any other issues I'll encounter with the Oreo update? Or is it all good other than the CEC thing with the AVR/soundbars?
