Huge success. Naturally I couldn't wait to try it out so I did it tonight. Tarzan looked great in 3D. I had audio issues though. I used a coax to analog converter but apparently there' s an issue of PCM or non-PCM and all I got was sound like a helicopter taking off. I tried to change the BR player audio output but the sound booth is far from the screen and I couldn't read the screen from the booth or operate the BR player from near the screen. Maybe I'll get a cohort to stay by the screen and tell me what it says.
We've used an HDMI to analog audio converter on the non-3D BR players with success so I ordered another one of those - they do claim to pass 3D as long as all the outputs support it. I can't use one that we already have in the system because they go through the 4*4 matrix and booth monitor and those don't support 3D. This will be a bit of a kludgy system but it will work I think.
By way of explanation, the 4*4 matrix currently has two BR players, one English region, the other European, plus a cable TV box and PC hooked up as inputs. The outputs are the booth monitor, central (main Optoma) projector, and two side projectors (Sharp or Sony, I forget). I put in an 2-to-1 HDMI switch so I can bypass the matrix and hook the 3D BR player directly to the balan going to the Optoma. The soundboard is an analog Soundcraft GB4 so getting the audio through it is a bit of a workout. I put this all in another thread but figured I'd repeat it here for simplicity.
Thanks for all the help. Now that I know it's going to work, I'll order a few more 3D videos.
