I finally got the TV and both the glasses work. The 3D picture quality is excellent for the price. I have Tron and Lion King. Im kinda disappointed with Tron because I discovered the movie is not all in 3D.

Im gonna skip Beauty in the Beast for now because I already have the 2D version though.

Recommend me a reference quality live action 3d movie, besides Avatar(I got a Panny BD player for that).

Its the Samsung UN40D6400 btw, Thanks everyone for the help.

Resident Evil:Afterlife is live action. (Well, mostly undead action.)


Some others I have Captain America, Thor, PotC: On Stranger Tides, Alice in Wonderland, Pirahna.

That Smurfs movie looks mostly live action.

Drive Angry is a kinda love-it-or-hate-it movie, but the 3D is excellent - natively shot by someone experienced in the field (Patrick Lussier, who previously did My Bloody Valentine 3D and is now slated for Halloween 3D), with great depth and tons of pop-outs.

As for live action to avoid, well, I'm sure you've heard the horror stories about Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender. Neither directors Louis Leterrier and M. Night Shyamalan nor cinematographers Peter Menzies Jr. and Andrew Lesnie had any idea they were shooting a 3D movie, so composition wasn't done with the extra depth in mind and neither has pop-outs. To make matters worse, Prime Focus and Stereo-D, the conversion companies, were quite rushed to complete these conversions and got sloppy or lazy as a result.

Both have some scenes that look good in 3D, but also some that seem completely flat, and many depth errors - cardboard cutouts, etc. With the right expectations they can look nice in places, but it's probably not worth much extra. Plus The Last Airbender 3D release is barebones, as opposed to the 2D edition with a bunch of special features.

An idea from reading a part of the 3D adapter's manual: Did you turn the 3D adapter & TV off, then power them up in this order: TV, Sony, 3D adapter?

If so, did the 3D adapter power up automatically with the Sony? If it didn't, you'll need to turn it on manually. If it powers up only when you insert a 3D disc in the Sony, perhaps it isn't ready when the Sony does its 3D-device check; since only the adapter is HDMI 1.4-compliant (the main reason it even exists), if it's not fully up & running the 3D-device check will fail. Turning the adapter on manually should fix that.

Hi.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6 6080se laptop with ATI Radeon HD 6770m graphic card. I managed to make an image file from a 3D disk with another laptop and copied it into my own laptop. Now I'm trying to mount it into the Virtual CloneDrive (5.4.5.0) and play it with the PowerDVD 11 through my Samsung 51 inch 3D Plasma TV.

The problem is, when I open the movie with PowerDVD I get an error which says my graphic card driver is incompatible. How should I solve this problem. Will it be solved if I download the latest driver for my graphic card? If yes, please someone give me the proper link to download the appropriate driver.

Thanks in advance.

Default Anyone have the Panasonic 3D Blu Ray Theater System?

I just got the Panasonic SC-Btt350p-K Full HD 3d system. Anyone have one? I saw it at goodwill today for 128$, looked on my phone real quick and saw that it got good reviews, so figured Id pick it up. At 128, I figured it couldnt be beat.

The sound quality is really good from what I can tell. Using a wired connection for the internet, but im not use to the menu yet. So far, I only have 2 complaints. From what Ive seen, it is not DLNA capable, which was a big dissapointment. The other is just a small complaint, which is that it doesnt have a digital audio input. Just optical. This wouldnt be a problem, but my tv only has a digital audio output. Im going to buy a converter at monoprice, but its still an unwanted inconvenience.

Anyone else have one of these? Im hoping im wrong about the dlna aspect of it, and jsut havent been able to figure it out yet.

EDIT
As a side note, it says not to mix speaker brands, but Im curious, is this just manufacturers wanting you to buy more of thier products, or could it really damage the system?


Gah, i must not be doing something right...

Accessing media files on the home network via DLNA was straightforward enough, but trawling through large music libraries was a slow process. Slideshows weren't as elegant here as in the Picasa viewer, with a large Loading message appearing each time a new photo is requested. A PAL MPEG-2 file was the only video that would play, with our DivX, WMV and AVC files all appearing greyed out.
I havent been able to figure out how to access dlna yet. So hopefull my 1 con that actually means something wont.

This is an awesome thread idea! Awesome Paranorman poster btw.
Both your setups look great!


I use:
An HTPC (AMD Athlon Dual Core 2.7 GHz Processor, 8GB RAM, Nvidia GTX460, LG BD Drive)
140inch Screen
Optoma HD67 (3D DLP 720p Projector)
Nvidia 3D Vision (glasses and emitter, which is placed on the center speaker)
Polk speakers and Onkyo receiver.


I sit around 9 feet away from my screen and it fills my view completely making it a very immersive 3D experience. Being DLP, I've never experienced any crosstalk/ghosting.
And yes, despite being 720p, the image looks pretty spectacular.
















Men in Black 3D Trailer. I put the Pringles can on the speaker to show the scale of the screen .

OP, do you think that your L & R front speakers are to close together?

The poster is a print made by James Rheem Davis an artist who's work has been sold through cinemaoverdrive.net in the past (Not sure what's going on though as I get a bigdaddy page when I hit that now). I believe cinemaoverdrives commissioned work to be licensed but don't quote me on that, I could be mistaken. More of his work can be found here: http://www.giantsumo.com/

If you aren't familiar with screen prints like these you should drop in on the 'Posters' thread in the "Home Theater>Home Theater General Discussion" sub forum. Also hit up http://www.mondoarchive.com/ to check out tons of great work.

You know, they don't look 'too' off to me, maybe a foot either way. To be honest I think people are just so use to seeing speakers on the sides of screens that it seems like where they 'should be', but it isn't, they 'should' be behind the screen, closer to where you've got them.

These are awesome pics of your respective set ups! Need to learn how to upload images onto this site.

My sig tells you what I'm using. Don't have a screen. I use my wall because I dont have very adequate ceiling height to mount it but to be honest....I think it looks fine on my audio tower. I may invest in a screen next year but for now....I'm good.
