    Question Need help with 3d glasses

    Hello,

    I didn't find anything in the search, so I'll post a new topic.

    I've got the Philips 40PFL8606K/02 (8000er) and it is able to show things in 3d.
    The only thing I need: glasses...
    In the quick start guide is written that I need a "PTA 516 Active".
    It costs like 80€

    Now my question:
    The only difference between the PTA516Active and the PTA516Passive is the 2-Playermode? So I did understand...
    Am i right?

    So the passive one costs like 20 €, and I just wanted to buy ONE... so glasses for 80€ which make the 2-Playermode better, are useless for me, because for the 2-Playermode I need 2 glasses... and I'll only buy ONE.

    My question is, am I right with my thought, that I can buy the passive one? Or is there anything else that's different?
    Or is there maybe an other model of glasses which fits with my tv?

    A detailed answer with easy english would be helpful, my english isn't the best

    Hi,

    No, the model of passive glasses is actually PTA416. Passive and active technology are incompatible.

    You can only use the glasses corresponding to the 3D technology of your TV. With the otherones you won't have the 3D effect.

    Regards,

    Okay thank you very much

    But as you said 416, i recogniced, there was something else in the quick start guide...
    That's what's written:
    "To enjoy 3D on this TV, you need PTA516 * Active 3D glasses. [...]

    *PTA416 & PTA426 for - 50PFL7956 Cinema 21:9 Gold "

    Maybe this two models fit?

    Hi,

    for passive 3D (Easy 3D) you can only use the following glasses:

    - PTA416 (standard 3D glasses)
    - PTA426 (design 3D glasses - Oakley)
    - PTA436 (dual view gaming glasses - set of 2 glasses: left player and right player)

    for active 3D (3D Max) you can only use:

    - PTA516 (standard 3D / dual view gaming via switch)

    Okay thats helpful thanks.
    So when I buy the PTA 416, I can watch 3D on my tv, like I can with the PTA516, the only difference is, that I can't use dual view gaming?

    Hi,

    you cannot use glasses for passive 3D on an active 3D TV - it's a different technology!
