UNxxB7000 UNxxB8000 3D Support Firmware Update Not Possible?

by -Tolik / March 22, 2010 8:46 AM PDT

I'm sure this has been disgust before but I failed to find it.

Is Samsungs first generation "LED" TVs not 3D capable EVER?!

What is the limitation of the TV? That it cant be patched to have a firmware to support 3D? The Sony PS3 is getting a firmware patch to play 3D content. Exactly whats not allowing the 6000 7000 and 8000 LED TV's play 3D content?

Thank you.

-Tolik,

The 3-D processing that is done inside of the television makes it not possible, as well as the new HDMI 1.4 High Speed requirement. Firmware can't install the hardware. I can't speak for how the game consoles will be addressing this, but even they may also need 3-D televisions to play the 3-D content with the patch.

The above post from me refers to the 2009 television models.

I didn't want to answer the question and cause confusion. Sorry about that.

Not all 2010 models will have 3-D capabilities either, and that also will be something that the consumer will not be able to add to, or upgrade to later.

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?
