Question about Sony KDL46HX800 46 in. 3D LCD TV

Open Question

Hi, i bought the Sony new 3d TV, i dont yet have any original blu ray 3d disc, but i managed to download some of 3d files to test the 3d feature. when i play the 3d files the picture is split identically into 2 halves, i know when i turn the 3D on the 2 halves should overlap identically forming the 3d video but this is not the case. in the middle of the screen the video is doubled as if the 2 halves just overlaped at the left and right parts of the screen and not in the center. of course when i look with the glasses the picture is doubled and not watchable. like this : [][] 2D when 3D it should be [] but in my case it is [[]] i went to samsung store and i got a 3d file that they use as a demo for selling the tv, i tried it there its an MKV file it was working ok. since sony doesnt support MKV format i converted the file to mp4 and i tried watching it but it did the same thing. what am i doing wrong? or is the tv malfunctioning?

This phenomenon is known as cross talk and is prevalent on LED tvs in 3D mode. Sony says they are working on the problem and are advising to use shutter glass(3D), and though there will be some improvement, it does not solve the problem completely. I was skeptical about 3D from the start. May be a future software update will resolve the issue.

The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data.
This year is a busy year for smartphone market. As one of the most competitive one, blu ray movie becomes first choice for movie fans who would like to enjoy Blu-ray/DVD discs on a bigger screen. Directly watching movies on blu-ray disk is remarkable, although difficult it is. Now it is a good choice for us to choose an advanced software to help us to decode Blu-ray to some portable devices in an easiest and fastest way.

A new firmware update is just around the corner in October that will support 3D Blu-ray movies. Of course ,if you want to play 3D blu-ray movie on iPhone 4 or other gadgets, you need the blu ray ripper.The update will also include the Music Unlimited service. Sony continues its forward march into the burgeoning world of the 3D home market, announcing at the 2010 IFA press event in Germany, and recounted by Engadget, that the playstation will soon receive a firmware update that will allow it to play 3D blu-ray movies. The firmware will also include the recently announced"Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity" service.

The PS3 currently supports3D games, but Sony has not yet to fully push for 3D blu-ray movies until now. Spokespeople for Sony also claimed that 20 3D blu-ray titles would be available within the next 12 months, including Avatar, The green hornet, and the upcoming Spider-Man. The last two titles have not been released, but both are being released in 3D by Sony.

It's reported that Disney and Sony have joined forces to co-market blu ray 3D hardware and software beginning this fall. For an undisclosed limited time, select bundles of Sony Bravia 3D televisions will come with the exclusive release of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and Bolt on Blu-ray 3D.

Twentieth Century Fox recently extended their agreement with Panasonic to market Blu-ray 3D software and hardware by bundling James Cameron's Avatar on Blu-ray 3D exclusively with Panasonic 3D Viera HDTVs beginning this December. The move was designed to counter Samsung's alignment with Dreamworks to bring together all four Shrek films to Blu-ray 3D exclusively with Samsung's 3D HDTVs. Warner has partnered with LG to offer three IMAX nature films on Blu-ray 3D with their 3D sets.

The odd man out in the current Blu-ray 3D market overwhelmed with exclusive manufacturer and publisher deals are consumers. To date there are only two titles available at individual resale on Blu-ray 3D: Sony 's Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and starting next week, Monster House. The only other confirmed titles are Disney's A Christmas Carol in mid-November and Sony's Open Season by year's end.

Sony's Resident Evil: Afterlife is expected to be the first day-and-date Blu-ray 3D release in either December or January.

Does the Playstation 3 support 3D DVD"S. I just bought a Sony 3D capable tv and hooked everything up and the PS-3 says it doesn" support 3D format.

With the new 3.50 update that Sony released it unlocked the ability for the PS3 to play 3D blu rays. Are you sure you have updated to 3.50 as you will need to do this before playing any 3D blu rays. I am sure if you update to this version you will find everything will be fine.

Hope this helps

Gets stuck displayong BD-ROM and won't play

Your Blu-Ray player needs a firmware update from Sony. Here is a link to the page to download the firmware

You will need to download the firmware and burn the files to a cd-rom disc. First you double click on the downloaded file to extract the files to a folder. Then you will need to use the "burn image" setting in your cd burning software on your computer and burn those files to a cd-r disc. Then when you insert the disc into the Blu-Ray player it will start the update process. DO NOT DISTURB the player when the upgrade is happening and it usually takes about 30 minutes. Periodic upgrades will be needed with the player to be compatible with the new format of Blu-Ray discs. The full instructions are on the web page.

Need to activate dvdxcopy gold

this software in my own experience is not very user friendly. I recommend getting on a torrent site and trying different DVD software instead actually. Unless you purchased a key, then click on help, and there you should be able to enter your key code to activate in the 'About' section or Register.
