Default [Quick Guide] How to watch any 3D Blu-Ray(2D Locked or Not) on 2D HDTV

ok this is fairly straightforward and I have no clue if it has been talked about with this particular device but here goes nothing.

Ok so you have lets say you have purchased Titanic 3D and a 3D capable blu-ray player as an example I will use my own which is the Sony BDP S590

What you need is



  1. First go to the Display, BD or Video Settings of your 3D Blu-Ray player
  2. Once your there make sure Video Resolution is set to Auto so it can choose the best RES for when the 3D Video Wizard is hooked.
  3. Then Disable 24p or 24hz for BD
  4. Turn off your 3D Player
  5. Ok setup your 3D video wizard as per the instructions included.(you should know how to set it up if you own it.)
  6. Make sure you have the latest Firmware on your 3D Video Wizard
  7. http://www.cellnorth.com/frmwrupdate.htm
  8. Turn on your 3D Player and wait for the 3D Video Wizard to react, if it switches source back and forth or it does not react just press the Source button on your remote a couple of times, the Picture will come up eventually
  9. Once setup and you see your 3D players screen simply load up your 3D Blu-Ray Disc and the 3D video wizard will adjust itself to the 3D type.
  10. If you have movies that Disable 2D viewing from 3D disc(Disney, Titanic 3D(Open Matte!) and it loads up then youll know it worked.
  11. Now either enjoy the movie with the amber/blue glasses OR this is where it gets cool
  12. hit MENU on the 3D Video wizard and then Hit MODE here you will see 2 Options
  13. 3D FP to 3D
  14. 3D to 2D
  15. Select 3D ----> 2D and Vuola!

Enjoy your 3D Blu-Ray on your 2D HDTV(Titanic Open Matte looks amazing in 2D IMO and no it wont look washed out or anything when you turn the 3D to 2D)

The 2D version is 2:35:1
The 3D is 16:9 1.78:1


Any questions just ask, just trying to help those that dont have 3d tvs but do have that device and a 2D HDTV

Ill try to put up pics of the menus and what not if need be.

Thanks for the info but wouldnt it be just better to save up and buy a 3D HDTV? That way your getting a true 3D signal the way it was meant to be seen. Just sayin.

To each his own. I did this to enjoy the open matte aspect ratio in titanic 3d in non headache 3d(i can't watch 3d for that long). So whoever has use for this info great. If not I shared a bit of my experience.

I doubt I personally use this, but I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to inform others about it and how to use it.

That's very interesting.

I can't imagine it worth the $60 and the setup just to see the lower half of that cubby chicks butt but still.

If you have a projector (like I do) and you can handle anaglyph (which is pretty aweful compared to the newer 3D tech but the glasses can be under $1), then this works for all 3D Blu playback.

I'm nearly interested... I can pick up plastic anaglyph glasses cheap and have lots of glasses for 3D movies in my HT.

It's interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Edit- I use a 3D VIP 3D displayer to watch 3D blus on my non 3D projector which costs more but it has the actual shutter glasses and doesn't give you color changes like the anaglyph stuff. With that you could also turn off the 3D and watch the 3D version in 2D but ... it costs more. But,... it gives you more too because you can watch 3D Blus somewhat correctly.

Hey DJ I didnt mean for the way it sounded so I am sorry. I seriously did look into buying this but thats a moot point now that my LED/3D tv is arriving today. But its a good tool for those who dont want to go out and upgrade to a new tv. So thanks for the info you posted, it does come in handy for those looking into buying it.

Sounds interesting, and I was almost sold until I read that it uses anaglyph 3D and you're looking through red and blue filters. Unless I'm missing something? Is everything red/blue like those old paper glasses, or is there still a good amount of the color of the original source with the glasses on?

If anyone here wants to watch Blu-ray 3D movies converted to anaglyph on their existing 2D set-up, I have another method too. If you got the right stuff.

You need;
Some sort of display (telle, projector, monitor, h*ll, an old CRT will do...)
PC with Blu-ray drive
A decent graphics card, not amazing, but decent. For nVidia you need at least a 240.
Cyberlink PowerDVD from ver. 11 Ultra and up, but if it's 11, makes sure it's 11 Ultra
Anaglyph glasses (cheap as dirt on Amazon, or pick up an old movie that comes with 'em!)

Plug the computer to the telle. Open the program. Locate the 3D option, and set the output to anaglyph. Only red/cyan is supported on 11 Ultra, but I don't know if the purple/green ones work with ver. 12 (I prefer these colors for anaglyph, distracts me less, but that's probably just me).

Now whack in the movie you wanna watch and sit back and enjoy in wonderful 3D anaglyph amazement!

I know, read the first post and thought, "Dude...I got a button on my remote that does that. "

this is not to view ANYTHING in 3D, its to use this device the 3D VIDEO WIZARD which lies to a 3d blu-ray player making it think any 2d hdtv can accept 3d signal so it can play it in its amber/blue 3d, but the point of this post is to mainly enjoy Titanic 3D's open matte aspect ratio on any 2D tv. There are no glasses involved anywhere. Its just to convert the 3d to 2d. From a 2D only tv.

*bump*

I mentioned this product in the Jurassic Park thread as it sounds like a good option for those that want to see the remastered version of JP in 2D (only available on the 3D BD). It's currently just $36 on Amazon, sold by a third party but fulfiled by Amazon. Amazon themselves has it for over double that.
