With this new upgrade for the 738 and 838 series tvs,does anyone know if this will improve the 3d picture,since it wont be displaying 3d in checkerboard

It will still display the picture in checkerboard. The difference is that you will no longer need the adapter to convert the signals, as the TV can now do that itself.

While its older 3DTVs will still absolutely require an adapter, Mitsubishi is rolling out a software update for its 2010 line of 3D-ready HDTVs that will allow them to process additional forms of 3D video supported by HDMI 1.4 devices. The TVs shipped with only support for checkerboard or side-by-side format 3D, while the new update adds top-bottom (ESPN 3D) and frame packing (Blu-ray 3D) support without requiring an adapter passthrough.


So dose'nt this mean 3d will be displayed differently instead of checkerboard

No. It means the TV can now do what the adapter used to do, which is to convert top-bottom (ESPN 3D) and frame packing (Blu-ray 3D) into checkerboard.

This software upgrade will allow these TVs to receive all HDMI 1.4a mandatory 3D formats and display these images in the TVs native 3D format.
The TV's native 3D format is checkerboard.
