Does anyone know how to put the W1080ST in 3D mode, when I go through the menus its greyed out. My projector is connected to a Denon AVR-889 which supports HDMI 1.3a and I have been led to understand that should be enough for 3D. Just don't know if the 3D option is greyed out because the projector doesn't like the HDMI cable or the receiver or I am missing something. I am running old firmware 1.2 but that shouldn't be preventing 3D.

Thoughts?

You need a receiver capable of passing through HDMI 1.4 to get frame packed 3D on the projector. I had a 1.3 capable marantz and I had to use the optical input from my ps3 and bypass the AVR to get 3D on my w1070.

I think on HDMI 1.3 you might be able to get one of the SBS modes working though, for games or bluray rips. Pretty sure that works. Since SBS is no different a signal than regular 2D 1080p / 60.

Also make sure you are on the latest firmware because they added a bunch of 3D modes on these projector models.
