Hi, I recently purchased a samsung series 6 smart 3d tv. When I click on the 3d button in my remote, it displays an error message as "Not Available". I really need some help here. Thanks in advance.....

What is it supposed to mean?

I thought that samsung tv converts the actual picture to 3d ..... So what is a 3d source?

For example

Here in the UK we have two main TV suppliers, both digital, (Satellite or cable), as analog TV has now ceased.

Both suppliers, Sky and Virgin, offer the normal range of non-3D channels, but so far only Sky offers 3D channels, for some sport and some movies.

If a subscriber has Sky then they also need to subscribe to Sky's 3D option. Whether or not that needs a special box I can't say. But we cannot watch 3D TV here in the UK without subscribing to Sky's service.

That might be different where you live, but no 3D tv will convert ordinary non-3D programs to 3D. The programs must be televised in 3D before a 3D capable tv can show it.

So, who do you get your normal TV channels from, the source, and do they offer 3D content?

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate the help.... I am currently using a digital connection. So I guess that I will have to ask the service provider for more details... Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
