Yeah, I'm pretty sure buying the new 2011 glasses nets you Shrek 1-4 and Megamind in 3D... I was almost tempted to buy the set even though I have a Panasonic! (but I still stand by my decision to sell 'Avatar' on eBay... for $100+?... duh... winning!)


Oh, and I'm not surprised about Green Hornet, especially since it seems to have one of those Sony 3D covers (the cover art is an object/objects in the foreground and the Blu-ray case insert is the background) so they seem to have made it thicker to both (possibly) increase that effect and have plenty of breathing room for the extra disc (most, maybe all of their other 3D BD's are 1-disc'ers)


That's close. The last Samsung pack had Shrek 1-4. The current pack has Shrek 4 (only) and Megamind.

This is the new one that is in active shutter 3D. The original release was red and green glasses.

What? Not sure where you got your info from. But the current starter pack has Shrek the complete collection and vouchers for Megamind and Shrek 4. So you get all Shreks (1-4), plus Megamind, plus an additional copy of Shrek 4 (that comes with Megamind).

I know you were making a joke but Mitsubishi has been making 3D ready TVs since 2007 (at least I think there certain models that year were labelled 3D gaming ready or something like that, but they were technically 3D ready TVs I think). It's just the kit which has the adapter that converts the input's 1920x1080 3D signal to 1920x960 3D checkerboard which the Mitsubishi's can display (which BTW to my eyes looks just as good as 1920x1080 3D), and an IR emitter for the glasses didn't come out until June of last year. Also I didn't go this route (I have a 2009 Mitsubishi, the 3D kit, and a PS3 that I'm planning to replace with a stand alone Blu-ray 3D player eventually because the PS3 can only output DTS with 3D Blu-ray discs) but I read that some of the Panasonic Blu-ray 3D players output checkerboard, so you don't need the adapter with that player, but you have to use "DLP Link" glasses (which I read don't work unless it's pitch black in the room, so during daylight hours 3D doesn't work), which don't require an emitter to work, so the Mitsubishi 3D ready TVs had at least two methods of becoming 3DTVs, but yeah neither of those were released until 2010.

Some Panasonic 3D blu-ray players do output checkerboard and have dual hdmi outs (like the DMP-BDT350).

You don't have to use DLP link glasses with the above mentioned player, nor do you for any other source on a DLP tv.

And DLP Link glasses work just fine during daytime hours for me.

I screwed up my wording, sorry.

Good to know I'm wrong about the DLP link glasses, I just remember reading somewhere that people who bought them had tons of sync and 'rainbow effect' problems during the day.

With the Mitsubishi 3D ready TVs there is no IR emitter built in so if you only have a Mitsubishi 3D ready TV, and a 3D Blu-ray Disc player that outputs checkerboard (like a Panasonic one), as far as I know, you have to use DLP link glasses, since IR glasses won't work without an IR emitter, that's what I meant.

I bought the 3D kit which has the adapter, the IR emitter, and two pairs of IR glasses, but I can't mix IR glasses with DLP link glasses (use them at the same time) because the DLP link ones make you reverse the L-R signal, right?

When the Panasonic Blu-ray Disc players get cheaper (if they even will), I would love to buy one if it can convert DTS HD MA and Dolby True HD to PCM (I have an Onkyo receiver that accepts multichannel PCM, but not the other loss less tracks) and output it on the second HDMI output. But the irony is I don't need the Video HDMI output to output checkerboard since I own the adapter. But yeah I don't know what possessed Panasonic to make 3D Blu-ray Disc players that give me a 3D signal through the first HDMI out for a 2009 Mitsubishi 3D ready TV (which would be good if I didn't own the adapter) and give me a loss less audio signal (that is if it converts everything to PCM) through the second HDMI out for a 2006 Onkyo receiver, but I need to buy one before they change their minds and remove those features in newer models. With my PS3 I can only watch 3D Blu-ray Discs in plain DTS, it just doesn't cut it, especially Tron: Legacy.

I don't get rainbows or have syncing issues, but the picture certainly looks better when it is darker (doesn't have to be night time, just close the blinds as much as possible). :lol: My understanding is some home lights (can't recall what type) cause the glasses to lose sync because their "flicker" interferes with that given by the dlp-link.

With the Mitsubishi 3D ready TVs there is no IR emitter built in so if you only have a Mitsubishi 3D ready TV, and a 3D Blu-ray Disc player that outputs checkerboard (like a Panasonic one), as far as I know, you have to use DLP link glasses, since IR glasses won't work without an IR emitter, that's what I meant.

Correct (I believe). There was no "mitsubishi" IR emitter before 2010 to my knowledge. I actually had a Samsung 3D ready tv before my Mitsubishi, and I think those TVs were in the same boat as far as branded emitters go.

I bought the 3D kit which has the adapter, the IR emitter, and two pairs of IR glasses, but I can't mix IR glasses with DLP link glasses (use them at the same time) because the DLP link ones make you reverse the L-R signal, right?

If you can wear the DLP link glasses upside down they mesh just fine with the IR ones. ;)

(I tried it with xpand102's, it was not too uncomfortable, but nowhere near ideal, and I didn't do it for an extended amount of time. So I don't suggest it.)

When the Panasonic Blu-ray Disc players get cheaper (if they even will), I would love to buy one if it can convert DTS HD MA and Dolby True HD to PCM (I have an Onkyo receiver that accepts multichannel PCM, but not the other loss less tracks) and output it on the second HDMI output.

With my PS3 I can only watch 3D Blu-ray Discs in plain DTS, it just doesn't cut it, especially Tron: Legacy.

I am pretty sure the DMP-BDT110 (or maybe 210?) models are checkerboard compliant, and much cheaper than the 350 model was. I don't know if it has dual HDMI's though.

I actually just ended up upgrading my Onkyo to a 3008 (newegg has them at a great price on saturdays), rather then continually messing with my older Onkyo (plus the 3008 offers 9.2 as opposed to 7.1). Of course the fiance wasn't too excited about new AVR, speakers, and a sub given the cost (I got a great deal on most of it though, lol). :mrgreen:

Rango was 3D in theaters, right?

No mention of a 3D version, my guess is it's going to be another exclusive for Samsung 3DTV's, if they have a contract with Dreamworks, my guess is they have a contract with Paramount, but I might be wrong. Do Dreamworks' movies still get manufactured by Paramount or is it a different company?

That's awesome then. I saw the same question asked on the bluray.com forum and the answer there was you only got the two movies.

I thought the same thing yesterday, but actually the movie was not released in 3D, who knew that they made kid's movies these days that are not 3D.

Well, considering the first two Narnia movies are live action and weren't originally filmed in 3D... the conversion process would be a LOT more expensive and time-consuming than merely programming a second camera (for the other eye) into the rendering system for a digitally animated movie like the 'Shrek's or the first two Toy Story movies.

The other issue with having a 'Narnia' set is the fact that the first two were released/distributed by Disney and the third one is Fox.

The CEs are giving the studios more money then what they would make selling the disc in stores. I see why studios do this, but in the long run, it's only going to hurt them.
