I got 2 movies,one is the ultimate wave,the 3d on this was really nice, especially the cgi stuff, little floating ghosts and planetary shots...Transformers dark side of the moon,is almost un watchable to me though,all the action looks blurry and out of focus,the only thing that looks good is the slow motion cgi and landscape shots.Maybe im missing something but i remember all the demos in the stores looking better than this. I am using the rechargeable sammy glasses,I think i would enjoy a pair that wraps around more,I dont like the flat feel of them unless all the lights are off in the room,even then id still prefer a more contoured set of glasses.
Still cant get the sammy player to work even with 3d turned on as soon as the disk plays it grays out the 3d option?
To play a 3D disc automatically in the PS3 and the Samsung Blu-ray player the disc
1. Needs to be Blu-ray NOT DVD.
2. The Blu-ray disc must follow the 3D Blu-ray format.
All other types of discs that follow other 3D formats will not trigger the 3D circuits of the PS3 or Samsung Blu-ray player.
The PS3 and Samsung 3D Blu-ray player will always sends frame packing 3D along with the announcement that the signal is frame packing and what is the resolution of the signal. The settings in the TV are not for "How the TV displays" the image - that if fixed and always the same - it always displays 3D in the checkerboard format and the TV coverts non-checkerboard signal to checkerboard internally.
The difference you see between the two movies is just that, the difference between two movies. One is better 3D mastering than the other. Demos in the store normally try to use better quality 3D Blu-ray discs because if you saw a poor quailty
3D disc, you would not purchase the 3D equipment.
The settings in the TV are to tell them what type of 3D is coming in so that the TV knows what type of 3D processing to use to convert the 3D to the checkerboard format.
1. The Off
setting tells the TV that when a 3D signal that HAS the 3D announcement is received, figure out how to take one eye view and display that as a full screen 3D image and do nothing if the 3D announcement is not in the signal.
1. The Automatic
settings tell the TV to read the 3D announcement in the incoming signal to determine what processing to use.
2. The Side-by-Side
setting tells the TV that there is no 3D announcement in the incoming signal so assume that the signal is 3D Side-by-side and process that way.
3. The Top-Bottom
settings tells the TV that there is no 3D announcement in the incoming signal so assume that the signal is 3D Top-Bottom and process that way.
4. The Checkerboard
setting tells the TV that there is no 3D announcement in the incoming signal so assume that the signals is 3D Checkerboard and process that way.
5. The 2D+Depth
setting tell the TV that the signal is not 3D but use the special processing to make it a pseudo 3D signal.
If any of the "on" settings are selected and a signal is received that HAS the 3D announcement, the TV overrides the manual settings and automatically processes the signal correctly converting the signal to Checkerboard for display.
I do not know why your Samsung is not recognizing the 3D disc if it is a correct 3D Blu-ray. If the Samsung is connected directly to the TV via HDMI, then it should know the TV is 3D. If the Samsung goes through an AV Receiver, then that AV Receiver needs to support 3D because the Samsung will not be able to establish that the TV at the other end is 3D if the AV Receiver does not support 3D. You may want to ask that question in the 3D Source device section of the AVS forums.
