Can you elaborate on this? I have seen issues with the media the file was stored on but not with the files.

Just as you stated. The issues on the files can cause the file to degrade over time. It is very slow. I have also made several copies of the same file and have noticed the degradation in video resolution.

That does remind me, Vudu has one of the most extensive 3D libraries I know of.

My projector still supports 3D and its not so old. I also have a 3D Plasma set but it never gets used.

The VR option is a good one... I think that as VR grows in popularity 3D will certainly come back though 3D looks a bit flat in VR.

Plus I got some news that is confirmed true. All HDTVs and hire built in 2015 and later are guaranteed to be "shutter 3D ready." all you have to do is do the exact same thing you did with the Sega Master System: buy an add-on dongle (which goes either in an ethernet port or USB port or something haven't got it yet so I don't know exactly which.)

I the only thing you really need in order for this to work is to get the TV to understand the timing of the shutter sinkers it doesn't matter whether the display is OLED or LCD or plasma or whatever new technology comes on the horizon. It doesn't matter whether or not it's 1080P or 4K or 8K or whether it's 60 HZ or 120 HZ or whether it's 24-bit color or 30-bit color. If you got the timing right it'll work.

Sony says they're syncers will work with their TVs guaranteed from 2015 onward and maybe some models earlier might be able to understand it.

And also even though it isn't explicit if you have all this equipment any Sony "disc player" or Internet movie player will work with the computer and TV and the internet and get any information needed to play 3D blu-rays. And in theory it should get 3D4K Discs. (is a 4K disc technically a Blu-ray or is its own separate format known as 4K disc.)

Also Sony said look for MVS on the back of the package. You have to be a little bit of a detective to find it but if you find it that means there's a 2d compatible 3D mode that they just don't want to blur in giant letters 3D because that'll scare some of the fish thanks to 3D hating being popular thanks to the aborted 2012 Super Bowl Broadcast.

Garbage. Pure garbage.

Also, learn how to spell sync.

Probably due to the upcoming Cinera OLED viewer, the Royole Moon OLED is right now at $299 Prime using a $300 clip on coupon from Royole.



Royole Moon

1080p x 1920 OLED per eye, about 48ļ horizontal field of view* Real 3D w/ 2.3 update. Integrated headphone.
* "800" @ 20m" which is about this from the middle of the theater:

or about 2PH for Academy/16:9 Widescreen movies.

That's bollocks. Complete and utter bollocks.

Mine is one of the bad ones. The better ones are still going strong, and I have one on order. Point being, that a few minor tweaks aside here and there, this set has been going for nearly 40 years.

But these contemporary TV's seem to be unsaveable when something goes wrong with them. It's an appaling step backwards in terms of production. I've been lucky with my Sony 3d set, it has lots of great features like the advance white balance settings which has helped me fix colour problems on a handful of discs. It also has lots of inputs, which has come in extremely useful for things like my Wii and VHS. Contemporary sets just don't have this. I'm dreading it packing up for so many reasons.

I used to split my time between each room/tv fairly equally (I watch a lot of old TV and videotapes, and prefer the old TV for that), but with the old one out of order until I can get the replacement tube, the Sony 3D will get a lot more useage.

I'm personally not enamored with 3D movies in the PSVR. The resolution is too low, on mine the image keeps drifting off to one side, which is annoying. Plus it's region locked, and that will stop me from playing the classic 3D stuff I have on RegionA.

So when I turned on the TV, the right side would dim and then the TV would shut off and the led bar would flash red 6 times in a row. I read about it and apparently it is the led board that goes off and needs to be replaced. As the TV was already 5 years olds ( minus 2 days, and that is very important for the outcome), Sony gave me a brand new xh9005. I’m really happy with it. The TV is amazing and was well worth losing 3D for a brand new 2020 model. I already had a very basic projector and that was my main movie watching setup. I’m now looking into getting one that supports 3D, maybe a dlp that always have fantastic 3D reviews.

So they couldn't replace the board? Or repair it? That's pretty bad, especially when compared to the situation I have with my old TV. Personally I'd have tried sending the set to a local repairshop first. Sometimes they can haveparts from other TVs that have failed, and on some occasions can cobble a working one together.

I read online that the solution is somewhat simple if you have the parts, which I doubt they would have. But to be honest, even having lost 3D which is an absolute bummer, I absolutely prefer the outcome of my warranty claim. To get a brand new top model tv after my nearly 5 years old tv broke is just amazing. Sony definitely lived up to my expectations and I feel completely justified by having everything Sony in my home theatre.

It would be more justified if the new TV could still do 3D. The only thing Sony I have is a Beta VCR.

I could have gotten an older refurbished model or the same model I got, but one used for display. Instead I was rewarded with a brand new one straight out of the box. That to me is customer service done right.
I would love for this one to be firmware upgradeble to 3D. It is allot brighter than my old one so it would be a fantastic experience. Already watched a couple of 3D anaglypgh videos on youtube and was pleasantly surprised. Silent Madness is in my near future and Iím very happy that Dynasty will also include an anaglyph option.

The good news is there are still many shutter and polarized used and refurbished 3D TVs out there. And some of them are really low-priced.
