    How to view 3D stills on 42PFL7606?

    Hi, I'm a new owner of 42PFL7606 TV.
    I'm doing 3D photography a lot, and would like to try watching the (still) pictures on the TV.
    So, I have a TIFF/JPEG/whatever side-by-side parallel-view images shot with Loreo 3D lens. The resolution is around 12 megapixels for the whole stereo-pair.
    What I shoud do in order to view such pictures in 3D properly on my TV?

    Thank you in advance,
    Oleg.

    Hi,

    you cannot watch 3D pictures with your TV.

    However, if you have a Blu-ray player you can watch a picture there (side-by-side) an switch manually the TV to Side-by-Side (only works on HDMI with HD resolution).

    Hmm... this doesn't sound good, but thanks anyway.

    Well, I have a non-3D BluRay player with USB port; can I use it to watch the pictures? And if yes, should I process them somehow?

    Thanks,
    Oleg.

    Hi,

    what about trying? ;-)

    Just try to watch one picture on the BDP via USB-Stick. Then switch TV manually to Side-by-Side...

    Actually I would prefer to save the time on trying.
    By the way I have a hint telling this won't work: when I play a 3D SBS movie on a non-3D media player (connected by HDMI 1.4), I see two pictures on the screeen, but the TV doesn't allow switching into 3D mode.

    But, going to the beginning, I'm sure I saw a thread saying the PFL7606 should play JPS files; I took this for granted when decided to buy this TV. With this thread I tried to go further and figure out how to preprocess the images for the proper viewing. And ... what a push-back ...

    Thanks, this works too!

    So, as for now I'm aware of two methods:
    a) Providing ready interlaced images on USB disk connected directly to the TV.
    b) Providing above/below (preferably) or side-by-side images on USB disk connected to an external player.

    Regards,
    Oleg.
