View Full Version : 3D over USB

Hi,

I want to ask the developers of the TV firmware to allow me to enable 3D, when viewing films over USB.
It would be much easier then to buy a DVD player and burn a DVD every time I want to view a side by side 3D film.
By the way, I would be fine too, if I could enable 3D in NetTV.
At the moment I can watch 3D on HD Sat channels only and there are not very much such channels :-(

I bought a PDL7906 which is a 2011 model, however unfortunately no 3d usb support. There was a rumor on this website that a firmware update was planned end of september.

Oh, you are talking about 2011 model, I have a 42PFL7606K/02 and think this is a 2011 model. Perhaps, I can get the feature.

Confirmed by philips support team. In the future firmware 3d via USB will be added. 3D wil not supported in AV, components and VGA sources because they are analog sources.
we'll wait.......

Hello,
I hope it will come soon, because the german television transmitter ZDF has publishe a 3D docu but we can't see it.

Hi,

Can you provide more information regarding which TVs will get 3D support via USB? Is it only 2011 models or 2010 as well?

It would be really nice if the support for 3D over USB would be for 2010 models also.

At me the TV 8605 talked to expert Filips has told that it would be necessary to write persistently to the company that it was possible to establish 3Д with USB, Samsungi and Panasoniki without problems read 3Д on the built in player, Filips lags behind, protects the copyright, and clients suffer

I own a Philips Cinema Gold TV (fw 14.80). I tried watching a 3D movie via USB that I downloaded for free from the following page: http://huberbuam.zdf.de/ZDFde/inhalt/7/0,1872,8352935,00.html This is a side by side 3D movie so this option must be enabled in order to see 3D.

I'm experiencing difficulties playing this movie. I mean it plays but after just 40 seconds, the TV resets the signal and the movie starts playing again from the beginning. I have to activate the side by side option again and then I'm caught in the same loop over and over again.

I'm sure the movie isn't faulty, I downloaded the file multiple times to be sure it's not a problem withe download. Does anyone also experience this?

Dear all,

I own a philips 50PFL7956H/12. And i allso encountered problems playing 3d content via usb, or via my pc linked with a hdmi cable. If i send a side by side 3d movie the tv displays two separate pictures side by side. if i select the option side by side, the tv goes black (it's trying to combine the two into one 3d movie, but fails) and then displays the movie as two side by side pictures againe. however if i go to adjust--> 3d and first select 2d, then againe click 3d and select 2d to 3d conversion then againe click 3d and now select 3d side by side. then the tv succeeds in combining the two side by side pictrues into one 3d movie. it works for me all the time and i hope this works for all of you to. However i hope philips will fix this in the next firmware update.

please poast a reaction if you tried this and it worked or did not work for you

Hi,

please write in English - this is an international forum. Or you can use the Google translator.

Why do you want to watch BDs over USB? Blu-ray player are connected via HDMI. For MKV support, see supported codecs: http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?1067-Supported-CODEC-overview-for-ALL-models-(TV-HTS-and-Blu-ray) - it's the same as in 2010 models.

If you need a player which supports more codecs, please take a look at Philips HMP devices (HMP3000, HMP5000).

Great news! 3D works with the latest firmware (21.10.) on my 7606! Thanks very much, Philips!

I can play my side-by-side mkv over DNLA and USB, and can activate 3D!

Didn't test it with resolutions other than 1920x1080 though.

For lower resolution videos, 3D could not be enabled, unfortunately.

Thanks Alex for the hint to the Huberbuam 3D movie!
Haven't tried it over USB yet (did you?), but through ZDF Mediathek, I could _not enable 3D.

Or, Did I miss something and this already works?


Feature Request for 3D movies over USB:

Enable 3D for video resolutions other than 1920x1080 from USB (Update: also works for 1280x720)
Add option to switch left/right side
Enable 3D for NetTV (works for 1280x720 I guess)



At the same time, regarding 3D pictures from USB/DNLA:

JPS is not recognized and enabling 3D JPG pictures wasn't possible (not even on 1920x1080 pictures).

Showing an interleaved JPEG of 1920x1080 worked in general, but the colours were fuzzy
- obviously the JPG compression messed up the colour between even and odd lines.

Feature request for 3D JPGs:

Enable 3D for side-by-side resp. top/bottom JPGs
accept .JPS as JPG-stereo with side-by-side image
accept JPG resolutions other than 1920x1080 for this
Allow side switching



Matthias

PS: Is there actually something like a categorized "bug"- and "feature request"- tracking system like on sourceforge?
Like 1 thread per item?
I have the feeling, a lot of issues, ideas and potential workarounds are lost in megathreads..

hi guys,

I have a 32PDL7906H and this weekend I have enjoyed some 3D movies via USB and also played with my PC connected via HDMI.

I don't know if this is correct or not but I found this website (www.3dsbs.com) where you can download movies in side-by-side format.

Still the only obstacle to be completely satisfied is the lack of support of DTS :(

Regards,

Philips - Thomas
11-03-2011, 07:26 AM
Hi

we do support 3D on HD content only!
About Pictures and 3D, we do not support 3D Images as we do not support the Formats, needed for this one.

Regards
Thomas

matthias
11-03-2011, 09:55 AM
Thanks for the fast reply!

Actually, the JPS File is a standard JPG, just with some additional info. So, if you rename it to .jpg, my TV can show it.

Ok, I understand that realizing interlacing for other non-HD resolutions is more effort, so I'd like to reduce it to just 1 feature request:

Enable 3D switch on 1920x1080 side-by-side/top-bottom JPGs



This is good enough, as I have to prepare the 3d pictures anyway. Just interleaving IN the jpg is not a good idea.

It would be nice if you could consider this for future FW releases.

Thanks,
Matthias

How does the TV recognize if the content is 3D or not?
On some YouTube oder mkv-files it shows the 3D options, on some it doesn't...for me they all look like side by side videos.
Is there a software tool to change the files so that the tv recognizes them as 3D?!

@tobsen: yes, but the resolution of the video must be 1920x1080.
And it doesn't work for pictures (yet -> Philips? ;-) ).

Ohhh well...basically yes. I do own the 47PFL7606K and I like it. But you will read about a lot of software issues that are really annoying. I'm very certain that Philips will fix them..but as long as they persist, I can't fully recommend it :-(((

tobsen
11-16-2011, 06:16 PM
The Problem is: there is nearly no good smart TV without these problems! I would like a tv with passive glasses, hbbTV and the ability to play as much content from USB as posible. So 3d included....
its a hard choice though...

OTB
11-16-2011, 06:20 PM
Yes, I know...been through that decision lately...
The TV is still nice and not everybody has problems. I don't have them and do love my TV :-)
When you say that you want to play much content via USB: the TV does not support DTS.

Hi Guys,

i've buy last week a 42PFL7656K LED TV and updated the last firmaware.
Now i try to play 3D mkv via usb, but my TV say's he can doesn't read or found a file.
i try some samples from 3D movies, only the sample of Shrek 4 will run and i can look this in 3D.

I read something that the MKV format must be H264 and not X264, it is possible, that in the next
firmware update also x264 supportet is?
Also the DTS format... now only AC3...

Thx
Thomas

Hi,

as far as I know, your files also need to have "real" HD resolutions (such as 1920x1080 - 1920x800 does not work).

Now running 3D mkv's over USB on my NTFS HDD. I ripped the 3D blu ray in 1920x1080p with AC3. You need 3 softwares and a little bit of time :) but now it works and i'm happy!

no skipping, no lags, no problems for fast forward.

matthias
11-25-2011, 03:38 PM
Interesting. Could you share some details?
What (video and total) bitrate did you use? Which video codec?
Did you specify a cluster-length for the mkv?

With 1920x1080, I got either smooth video or fast forward (depending on cluster-length) with mkv - never both together...

Thanks!

Hi,

yes - you can watch Side-by-Side (or top-bottom) movies from USB. You need to manually switch the 3D mode (via the adjust button) to Side-by-Side (or top-bottom). Also the video files need an EXACT resolution of 1920x1080.

Toengel@Alex

matthias
02-28-2012, 01:12 AM
I actually just discovered it also works if the video has a resolution of 1280x720. In that case, 3D can also be enabled.

So, it's possible to play movies/recordings over USB that come from 3D HD channels that are broadcasted as 1280x720p. No need to rescale - quite useful.
I guess this is why 3D works on NetTV youtube, too. (if they have 1280x720). I was sortof surprised at first to have assumed the youtube 3D videos were 1920x1080 ..

When playing true fullHD 1920x1080 mkv files with AC/3 audio the TV set actually plays the mkv file fine, but when I go to the menu and choose 3D side-by-side then the TV set freezes and reboots.

I don't know about 3D and not sure if this is related, but I had problems (http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?3080-32PFL6606-USB-Media-Player-Problems)with high-rate MKVs with fast-forward&rewind and motion jitter.
A workaround was to remux the mkv with a different cluster length for the a/v interleaver (--cluster-length).
Maybe this helps in your case, too.

To ALL who have problem with restart TV when try to play 3D content via USB or DLNA!
Yesterday I am try new ones to play 3d MKV. I was disabled Clear LCD option and other Perfect Motion options (they was disabled some times ago). What a miracle! When I try to select 3d options "Side by Side" or "Top/Bottom" tv is not restarted any more! I was trying on more than 15 3dBDrip 3,5-16 GB mkv files (720p -1080p с AVC, H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4). Played files via USB and DLNA (HomeMediaServer 1.21). Problem was gone!! Its solution helped some others people on forum.ixbt.com!
I am disappointed in the tech support, which for the year knowing about the problem of not able to find such a minimal and stupid decision.

I also tried disabling all video "improvements" on my 47PFL7656T and now I can actually watch a 3D mkv file that rebooted my TV set when some of these video "improvements" were enabled.

This really seems like a strange bug that the Philips developers should fix easily.

Any Philips guys to comment on this?

Another thing that really bugs me is the poor possibility to FF and REW during playback of mkv and other video files from USB or DLNA - any plans to improve this functionality?

It looks like Philips does not know how its product should really work.
It is very stupid situation!!! Users know Philips products much better then Philips...
I think Support should tell us about this feature - but we read this usefull information from user...
It is realy strange and stupid! IMHO

Please use the search and/or read this thread - this topic has been discussed a few times. Your movie must have this resolution.

I have the same question. If you have the link that leads to such answer, I will surely be grateful. http://imagicon.info/cat/12-19/text-smiley.png

Hi,

go to the support website of your TV and install the latest one. Then try a side-by-side movie. The movie needs to have a resolution of exact 1920x1080. Then try to activate 3D.

Does this mean that we can play 3D MKV content over USB and get DTS sound as well? (DTS passthrough to the receiver from the tv using audio return channel?)

no - DTS passthrough is also not supported.

I am happy to have found the post #79 of Romario_ne sharing a tip from another user.

I had problems with one 3D movie which is in mkv format and everytime I switched to 3D the TV made a clitch sound and restarted. Now how can a simple consumer figure out you have to disable both Pixel Precise AND HD motion so you can view this format in 3D ¿¿

I also came to understand later on that no other resolutions than 1920*1080 and 1280*720 will work. This means a ratio of ~1,778 . I would really love to hear an explanation as to why this is so. As to my knowledge this only applies to Philips TV.
I hope someone can answer and if it would be difficult to make a fix with a new firmware


Thanks

hey siddan; easy: for passive 3d the tv will take your picture and cut into half, so with a 1080 source you will get 2x 960 pictures. quality is... bad... only with active 3d you will get 1080 pictures

with 720 source and passice 3d you will get 2 times 640 pictures... maybe you can remeber 640 from windows 95, so now imagin the picture quality...

it simply makes no sense to create 3d content with resolutions below 720, and honestly, if someone does i'll wish him that he has to watch this videos 24/7.

Well, I wouldn't want to watch Active3D 24/7 either :-)
Actually, I'd rather watch passive3D 24/7, because the Passive glasses are much lighter compared to Active glasses.

Regarding the resolution - for a smaller TV, the halfed horizontal resolution is actually fine.
And without a special HDMI 3D Player and source, which does provide 2x1920x1080 (which is still rare afaik), you will have the same "halfed" resolution, even with Active3D

Still, I agree, for 3D, it would probably have been better to make a top-bottom layout "the default" instead of side-by-side,
as this would allow a finer horizontal=depth resolution.
Also, it would better match the line-wise passive polarization from Philips.

Even though, I still prefer passive 3D. I think it's much less straining to the eyes than active 3D.

I guess, decoding high-res H264, reordering the image data for 3D and image enhancements was probably too much for the media processor. Or it's a firmware bug.



I also came to understand later on that no other resolutions than 1920*1080 and 1280*720 will work. This means a ratio of ~1,778 . I would really love to hear an explanation as to why this is so. As to my knowledge this only applies to Philips TV.
I hope someone can answer and if it would be difficult to make a fix with a new firmware

I guess, this fixed resolution allows a hardware-accelerated preparation for 3D (e.g. from side-by-side to line-interleaved). Every other rate would require an hardware-accelerated arbitrary resampler, which is available for 2D, but which might not work together with the 3D hardware module, so from my understanding, it's a hardware limitation from the NXP media processor, I guess, but I might be wrong.

I haven't tested, if it possible to change the ratio of a 3D movie with the Format button. But if no, this is probably also due to a hardware limitation, so you're best bet would be to do some recoding and introduce 2 black bars to match the right resolution and ratio.

Update:
Actually, changing the format is possible, even in 3D, which is very good. So you can correct the aspect ratio as you need it.

bartb
05-22-2012, 07:36 PM
The resolution must be 1920x1080 or 1280x720.
Is there anyway to bypass this, through a hack or something so the TV always is enabled to do SBS or top-bottom? The reason is that real movie resolutions are not 1080p but rather 1920x800 (21:9).

I'm running into this not being able to play about 50% of the movies which are 1920x800 instead of 1920x1080.

I have a Philips 47PFL7606T/12 and I want to know if it is possible to play 3D movies SBS from USB device if it is a .mkv file?
And second do I have to make some adjustments before I go to SBS 3D?

Toengel
06-04-2012, 12:01 PM
Hi,

1) you need to install the latest firmware (via USB - see support website)
2) image resolution need to be HD (1920x1080 or the 1280x720 - not sure on the latter)
3) MKV is only a container - important are the supported codecs (see codec list) - e.g. DTS is and will not be supported

I own a 40PFL5507H/12
When I play movies over USB, the following 2 movies could not be converted from 2D to 3D.
1)
Video codec: V_MPED4/ISO/AVC
Resolution:1600 * 330
Frame rate: 29
Bit rate: 3326 Kbps

2)
Video codec: V_MPED4/ISO/AVC
Resolution:1920 * 800

What is the problem of those 2 video?


Lastly, is Audio Codec DTS core same as DTS ? Because my tv said DTS is not recognized.

When I'm playing Second by Wi-Fi support from my PC, picture laggs all the time.
When I'm connecting my HDD via USB to TV, it plays First file, but Second SHOWS, but impossible to start playing.

Is it firemware problem or ..?

Why it's not still in 2012 possible, to add codes, software, hardware to the TV, to let it play ALL from ur USB sources? I pay 600eur and still have to spent a lot of time in internet searching for answers.

p.s. my cellphone plays alltypes files + 3d even. Why's Big black box, can't afford for the same money same reability?
