dagbro Wrote:how about those of us with polarized dual projector setups? It's really great, all you really need is two projectors, a metallized screen, polarizers and a pair of passive glasses that cost a buck each. (i got 15 pairs for $20 shipped.)Thats interesting. Can you rotate the lens/filter 90° on a polarized projector to get the 3D effect?

i'm not sure i understand what you mean..
anyway, the light beam from each projector is polarized, either linearly and 90° apart, or circularly in clockwise for one eye and counter-clockwise for the other. then it's just a matter of matching the polarization to the glasses to filter away the "wrong" image. No electronic glasses, just one projector for each eye.

Don't you need silver screen for that?
- dagbro - 2010-12-24 14:57
yeah, like i said in my original post

Isn't this solution expensive, rare, and non-practical for home use?
- Vultures - 2010-12-24 17:47
Strange thing by the way. My Panasonic is regular shutter-glass 3DTV.
What is RealD logo doing on it?
- dagbro - 2010-12-24 21:41
well, in my case i already had a 2d home theater, so when the time(or, well, urge) came to replace my projector, i just kept the old one. Then i got the screen, filters and glasses.
it doesn't have to be more expensive than a current 3dtv, it all depends on the projectors you use.
and it's no less practical than a 2d home cinema. (software aside, or more specifically xbmc)
only thing is i have to roll down my white screen and turn off the second projector for watching 2d content. it's not as easy as hitting the 3d-button on the remote, but if you have a motorized screen it's close enough.
oh, Panasonic probably paid RealD a good bit of money to "certify" your TV, which could involve some incredibly high-tech testing... but most likely they just looked at it and said "well, it works"

Hi! Is there some source/web page, where I could search for an appropriate 3D projector (1080i), with the combination of polarized glasses - an affordable one...
Thanks for your suggestions

so i lost track sorry for asking:
but if i have a 3d capable videocard and tv with hdmi 1.4
And i have mounted an iso as an bluray drive will i be able to play the movie from xmbc with 3d? I mean checkboard 3d, not side by side.
I dont care about menu`s and things like that...
