I don't think I did anything special. Just popped in a 3D title (in this case The Hobbit) began play and the TV (Panasonic 3D plasma) recognised the 3D signal and prompted me to put on glasses. 

Of course you do need to have a receiver that has HDMI 1.4 or you plug the PS3 directly into the TV.

Staying in Wellington. Check out my AirBnB in the Wellington CBD.  Mention GZ to get a 10% discount

You need to set up the PS3 display as 3D. This should happen if it's all plugged in and you run the "Automatic" display settings thing. It will then ask you what the size of your screen is and should just work.
