I now have an Optoma (refurbed) projector in my house and a 100" screen so I had more time to play with this one. It's weird. The top menu is disabled when the disk starts playing and the pop-up menu button does nothing. After hitting next chapter several times, I finally get to the menu section. There doesn't seem to be any way to bypass all the preview stuff except hitting Next. Ok, so from the menu, you can pick episodes like Crash Landing On Mars, Worst Days On Planet Earth, etc. For each of those, you're prompted to select 2D or 3D. And then it works fine for the episode. I don't know what the problem at the theater was.
I've accumulated maybe 25 3D blurays in the last month or so and mostly there's no issue playing them. Just watched Guardians of the Galaxy and Madagascar 3 and both were great fun. My friend says the 3D is better than in the big theaters. Maybe because this is active and those are passive?
Anyway, big success. I'm going through the thread on good 3D videos and seeing what I can find for cheap on Ebay. And I plan on taking a run to the local thrift shops.
