Hi deshanv, my suggestion would be that you need to download the latest 3D firmware for the PS3. I read somewhere that this is required before you can play 3D content.

Cheers

Got the latest 3.50 firmware? You need that for 3D discs to work in the PS3.

Thanks guys, I have already downloaded the firmware. It is the Monsters vs Aliens 3D movie that came with my 3d Samsung tv.

Nope mate,

I'd say it would be an issue with the disc itself, as mentioned by Gavin in this post (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=64&topicid=68445) it is apparently a common problem with this particular movie.

Without knowing for sure, but don't you also need a 1.4 HDMI cable?

A cable wouldnt stop the PS3 from at least showing the disc is inserted.

Id say there will be a recall/swap for the movie soon enough....

The HDMI 1.4a cable is required for 3D content but as Gavin said, the PS3 should at least pick up that there is a disc in the system.

Well i presume it would of anyway..

I updated my 120GB PS3 last night to v3.50, put the AvM disc in and it played in both 2D and 3D straight away, looked good too.

You don't need an HDMI 1.4a cable for the PS3, as its only capable of 720p 3D resolution which is well inside the bandwidth specs for 1.3. (Actually HDMI 1.3c supports 3D up to 1080i resolutions)

I very much doubt you need a different cable for 3-D. It's really about bandwidth and most HDMI cables will cope with that fine.

For the new Ethernet link you might need a new cable depending whether the current "spare" pin actually has a cable in it and engineered in the right way.

Probably should have been more specific, HDMI 1.4a would be required for lossless audio and 1080P+ resolutions.

The PS3 is capable of higher resolutions for 3D content than that isn't it?

Which PS3 can't deliver anyway.  Even then, I reckon the majority of cables will still do OK.  Like stuzzo said, it's a bandwidth thing and there's no difference between 1.3 and 1.4 throughput, right?

I do wonder if PS3 can output lossless PCM and 3D at the same time, rather than bitstreaming  has anyone heard about that?  I guess it's harder to tell without the nice little light on the display? Laughing

Edit: Apparently SCEJ confirmed no lossless for either PCM or bitstreaming.
