Just looking for a bit of advice with 3D Blu-rays on the PS3. I can play them on my Samsung 3D TV but only in 2D - 3D Conversion. When I try and play 'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' in 3D it says "3D Experience Requires 3D Enabled TV and Player".
Also, when playing 'Monsters vs Aliens' it only allows me to watch it in 2D - 3D Conversion. However, when playing the game Motorstorm 3D Rift from PSN it allows me to play it in actual 3D without the need for the conversion.
Why is this? Does PS3 not yet support 3D Blu-rays fully? Are we waiting on an update? If you could let me know or give me any advice on this it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance! :)
Hey dude, click the link below.................
Thanks dude, much appreciated! So the firmware update is set for October instead of September now.
I'm sure I will be able to hold on an extra month lol. Thanks again man :)
Hi quick question how good is the 2 d to 3d conversion on the samsung considering getting one of these sets starwars and fast and furious would look pretty sweet let me know how close it is to proper 3d thanks
Hey Mate, it all depends what you are watching, Some things like Avatar are quite Passable, but things like Sky look sub standard, And it NEVER looks as good as normal 3D.
hi there ,, i had the same problem ,,, just needed new hdmi cable, needs to be latest model 1,4
if you know where to look you can find 3d blurays converted to side by side .....ooopss
and 2d-3d conversation is miles off . more so in films that in games
so the 3D bluray support firmware update is out, anyone tried a 3d bluray with it - thoughts ?
I'm having no luck with it at all right now.
PS3 (original 60G version w/ hardware PS2 support) updated to 3.50 firmware.
Samsung 50" Plasma 'C490' with shutter glasses
HDMI 1.4a cable from Vizeo
Monster House 3D -- no matter what I try to do, it keeps saying "3d experience requires 3d enabled tv and player"
I tried Cludy with a Chance of Meatballs, and it .. just worked. I didn't have to do anything special, I just inserted the movie, and played it.
HDMI 1.4 cable, btw? I didn't know the PS3 supported HDMI 1.4 cables (I didn't think they were pin-compatible).
I assume that 3D games are working?
The HDMI 1.4 spec is pin-compatible with all prior versions, it just has a few more of the pins 'in use' . And yes, I don't have any actual 3d games but the demo for things like MotorStorm 3D work beautifully!
I don't have the 3d version of Cloudy, just Monster House 3D
I tried to google around a little, and found - among other things - this:
When reading that, I get the sense that not all 3D movies will work on all players. "most" "should work", etc. :(
And I found your US board post on the subject. :)
This could be one of those "call support" issues, and report back what they say. I plan on buying 3D movies, and I would like to know what kind of problems to expect.
It works at last!
I didnt have much time to tinker with it yesterday but this morning I went in to 'Settings->Display' and reset it for HDMI, whereupon it immediately stated that I was attached to a 3d-compatible TV. Popped Monster House in, and it allowed me to start viewing it!
(I looked through the Settings->VIdeo before, but it was Settings->Display that made the difference. Apparently auto-recognizing an HDMI cable /isn't/ good enough! You have to manually set it to HDMI too)
i tried doing this, but no luck. i just bought the Resident Evil After Life 3D and it bummed me out because i cannot play it. I just bought my sony 3d tv in october along with my 160gb ps3. everything should be fine.... i will keep trying.
this is my tv model:
sony kdl - 55hx800
any help would be appreciated. thanks

I have sony kdl-55hx800 tv and PS3 with 3.51 update on it but I can't see Alice in wonderland 3d movie.
