3dFHDL 3D playback failure

    3dFHDL 3D playback failure

    Dear Fantec team,

    I haven''t been active for a while since I was only enjoying my Fantec 3DFHDL.

    However, I recently bought a great new TV Samsung F8500 (plasma 2013 line). It is praized for its great 3d playback capability with little crosstalk etc.

    So I started downloading some 3D movies (BD-50 files) of respectively 35 and 50 GB (TinTin and Promotheus).

    However both do not playback in 3D, only when I ask the TV to do a convertion (which is not that stunning). Both just start up as a normal movie (however with stunning quality).

    I tried downloading other 3D movies and I have the same problem. I did set the option standard 3D playback "on." All options I tried on my TV resulted in incorrect image processing, with incorrect image overlap. I really appreciate any help you are able to give me (I am running the February 2012 firmware which is the latest, right?).

    Many thanks in advance for your respons! :thumbsup:

    I feel like I missed an option on the Fantec or something likewise.

    Hi Wolfman,

    It is an ISO file. I just checked whether I had turned this option on and you were completely right. Many thanks for this update, it actually did the trick.

    I heard about it before but somehow it must have slipped my mind. Now Prometheus finally looks stunning in 3d!

    Again many thanks for the reminder, it helped me a lot!
