No 3D activation on TV and Blu Ray Player

by saleupse / January 31, 2012 2:31 AM PST

Hi, I have bought a Samsung TV UE40D6500 and a Samsung Blu Ray Player D6900S. I have tried to watch a 3D Movie (Final Destination 4 in 3D), but there is no way to see it in 3D with the original Samsung shutter glasses. They are connected by HDMI 1.4 cable, but the TV does not switch to 3D Mode by playing the movie to be able to pair the glasses with the TV.
I select 3D Movie on the main menu of the Blu Ray and the movie has its own glasses (blue and red), but I want to watch it with the Samsung shutter glasses in better quality.
Why does it not work?

3D Blu-ray

In order to be able to do what you describe, you must have a true 3D Blu-Ray disc, not a regular Blu-ray disc with anaglyph glasses. A "Blu-Ray 3D" disc would typically have a disclaimer on the back alerting users that a 3D HDTV, plus 3D glasses, and 3D Blu-ray player are required. In addition, the case would have a "Blu-Ray 3D" logo.

I bought this Blu Ray two days ago and it has both versions on the disk, the 2D and the 3D one and on the cover there is the description that this it contains the 3D version of this film.
I am going to try with another Blu Ray disk to check if it is a problem of the disk or of the player (it is a 3D Blu Ray Player as shown in Samsungs description).

Correct glasses

The glasses are the correct ones, they work well when I switch manually from 2D to 3D. This glasses where in the TV-Box together with the TV.
I bought another glasses specially for the Samsung 2011 models and i get the same result.

While I think those are all 3D models there is some debate is that is "Full" 3DHD or not. I will not enter into that debate.

However I wonder at times when a title needs an internet connection to play. Then again I've found titles that don't play unless we block the internet connection.

My thought on all that? The industry needs to reset.
