Default Something that has perplexed me about my HTiB/3DTV...

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I figured this was the closest area. If anyone has an explanation, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I bought a 3D TV back in August. A Panasonic TC-L42ET5. I own a low end Sony Home Theater System, the HT-SS370. The system is not capable of 3D pass through, but I didn't think a whole lot of that. I don't use the 3D feature on my TV a ton, and I have an alternative set-up running to my PS3 for 3D Blu-Ray playback (extra HDMI cable straight to TV, ToSLink to receiver).

However, I discovered something quite interesting that I haven't been able to figure out...

Both my cable box and X-Box 360, connected via the SS370 in the exact same fashion as my PS3 (HDMI) are able to properly display 3D signals. I can watch ESPN 3D and play 3D games on my 360 with no additional or alternative hook ups.

Why then is it only the PS3 that has the issue? I was confident that the SS370 did not have any 3D capability, so how are the cable box and 360 able to bypass that?

The PS3 uses a different type of 3D than the 360 and the cable box. They are SBS so really it's just a doubled image that is put together through the SBS 3D feature on your television to create the 3D image.The PS3, specifically 3D Blu-rays, uses actual encoded 3D, so it requires HDMI 1.4 to process, which a pre-3D receiver isn't capable of.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification. I thought it may have something to do with Side by Side, because I know ESPN 3D comes in on all the non-3D TVs in my house as well. It just displays stacked images stretched out to fill the screen.
