Post Stereo 3D Television Broadcasts and 3D HDTV Compatibility Issues



Neil Schneider from MTBS3D has pointed out something quite interesting, regarding the upcoming Hockey Night in Canada that will be broadcasted in stereo 3D too. Namely the fact that the broadcast will be in Side by Side format, but not all of the 3D HDTVs out there have the option to activate the stereoscopic 3D mode (automatically or manually) if the currently selected video input is not an HDMI one. And as you probably know HDMI output is a more recent addition to the Set-Top-Boxes, so older models will most likely be only equipped with analog Composite or Component video outputs and yo might not be able to activate the 3D mode due to that fact if your TV set only supports 3D over HDMI. You can of course choose to get a replacement unit that has an HDMI output if you have a broadcast that is going to be in 3D and want to be able to watch it, but what will happen if you figure it out at the last moment and you have no time to make things work. Another possible issue can be present even if you have a newer Set-Top-Box that does have HDMI output, but you haven't been using that as the image quality seems the same even over the Component connection and you don't have an HDMI cable handy. But you can much easily go out and quickly find an HDMI cable in the nearest electronics shop and thus solve the possible issue you may encounter with this.

So here comes a question and something that I want to ask owners of 3D-capable television sets to try on their devices, so that we can help other users that may be facing the issue described above as well as maybe even help 3D HDTV manufacturers to consider fixing that issue where it is present with a system software update for their products. So do try to activate the 3D mode in Side by Side or Over/Under mode manually when you switch the TV to use input from a connector other than any of the HDMI ports available ' try the component, composite, SCART if you have them present and report your findings in the comments below. Please provide the brand and the model of the 3D TV you have and if you could activate manually the 3D mode or notâ?¦
