Even on my humble 46inch Sammy the resolution drop is noticable - dare I say but SBS looks almost like SD quality.
No resolution loss for passive tvs and half over under. Note that passive display has 1920x540 resolution in 3d mode (540 even/odd lines) , so higher movie resolution will not make any difference. If your tv is passive 3d, half over under with high bitrate should look like the same as bluray 3d or with only small quality loss (because of re-encoding, not resolution).
Conversion is out for me.
Really was looking forward to keeping all my collection on the server.
Ah well, we'll just have to keep the physical discs around for a little longer (hopefully not too long).
