Starting November 16, 2010, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. (MDEA) will make available a 3D software upgrade for existing customers of the following models:


WD-60738, WD-65738, WD-73738, WD-82738, WD-65838, WD-73838, WD-82838


No other models are included in this software upgrade.


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. A list of all supported 3D formats after the upgrade can be viewed here.


Please click here to download the complete notes regarding the software update.


3 ways to obtain this 3D software upgrade:


1 - Automatic upgrade via Stream TV™ Internet Media connection. If your DLP TV is already connected to the internet using your home internet router or broadband modem to use StreamTV, you do not need to do anything, as your TV will receive this update automatically sometime between November 16 and December 1, 2010. Should you like to receive the update sooner or for some reason your TV did not receive your Stream TV update, feel free to follow step 2 below. All software versions of 012.06 or higher will have this upgrade; all software versions of 012.05 or lower do not have this upgrade. To see if your TV has received or still needs this software update, click here.


For instructions on how to connect your TV to the internet, click here (PDF).


a.Automatic upgrades will begin November 16, 2010.

b.The TV must be turned off (make sure the front green Status indicator is off) for at least 30 minutes to download.

c.Your TV must be connected to a live AC outlet the entire time. If connected to a switch controlled AC outlet, the switch must be left in the ON position.

d.The router and/or modem must remain on and functional and not be turned off or unplugged.

e.Not all TVs can be updated simultaneously so it may take a few weeks to receive the upgrade.

f.Remember to download the PDF version of the new operating instructions here.

g.The upgrades received in this method are at no charge from Mitsubishi for the software upgrade, however the normal charges from your internet service provider will still apply.



2 - If your TV is NOT connected to the internet but you do have home access to the internet and you would like to download and install the 3D upgrade via your own USB thumb drive, please click here for full instructions.


a.You will need a FAT32 formatted (MS-DOS for Macintosh users) USB thumb drive, 128MB or higher capacity.

b.You should backup to your computer any files you have on the USB drive and then remove these files from the drive.

c.Remember to download the PDF version of the new operating instructions here.

d.The upgrades received in this method are at no charge from Mitsubishi for the software upgrade, however the normal charges from your internet service provider will still apply.



3 - If you who are unable to download the software directly from the internet, you may purchase a USB thumb drive with the software pre-loaded from Mitsubishi, please have your model number ready and call:


1-800-332-2119


Hours:

Monday - Saturday 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM PST

I think you need glasses that are specifically "DLP Link" like the Xpand glasses.



I am planning on getting the one of these sets today and hope it works with PS3 and dlp link glasses without the emitter because of this:

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. A list of all supported 3D formats after the upgrade can be viewed here.



I hope that is correct anyway. Anyone tried it and know for sure?

I have the 60738 model, and a PS3. I have not bought anything for it 3D related yet as I was saving up a few weeks for the kit. I just saw this update now and it looks like I might not need everything in the kit anymore. So if I use my PS3 for 3D gaming and blu-ray movies, the only thing I need to buy now is just the dlp glasses? No adapter or emitter?


These are some that I saw another poster mention.....


Xpand 3D Shutter Glasses

Xpand X102 DLP-Link 3D Revolution Glasses - Blue

NXG Technology NX-3DG Active Shutter Type 3D Glasses


thanks for any help.

You dont need the kit anyway if you have a panasonic 3d blu ray player cause it converts the checherboard itself. You just need a pair of dlp glasses.
