I got the 3D extension kit this weekend for my 40plf8605h. There are some additions to my menu system now that seem to have something to do with 3D. My cable company (ziggo=a dutch company) has a 3D show case channel. But I can't seem to activate my system. Also 3D movies on youtube which I watch with netTV do not seem to support the 3D capabilities of the TV. Or doesn't the TV support 3D capabilities? I got those double screens that my manual talks about but when I go the the 3D menu there are 2 options (3D indeling & 2D/3D) where both options have a stopsign above them. According to my manual I should select "3D indeling" to make from the 2 seperate screens one 3D screen. But I can't seem to select that option.

yesterday new software is uploaded to the web, the release 140.
this software has also support for the 3D channel via Ziggo.
there has to be automatic detection, this is currently not working in oyur set.
therefore these 2 items in the menu are not active.
with the software update to version 140 this should work fine.
just try it.
I have bought a 46' 8605 a few months back and recently bought the 3D upgrade set. When I first tested the 3D games on my ps3 (back then firmware 3.41) the 3D effect worked but the quality was horrible, there was serious overlapping, you couldn't watch a 3D game for 2 minutes...
Now with the new PS3 firmware update it did not work at all. In the meantime a technician came and updated the tv with the new firmware ...140.... something. The PS3 games still did not function in 3D so i cannot test if the picture quality has improved, but reading other forums (tweakers, avforums) i shouldn't get my hopes up...
I was hoping that i could play GT5 in 3D aswell but so far it seems that only the 3D blueray player from philips gives a decent image... so far 3D Ready...
i've had a conversation with a philips employee today and he said that they're working on it but don't have a timeframe, it could be weeks but also months... and i don't know if it will work then.

Reason: additional information to this thread
still no news about PS3 3D gaming support?
I spoke to philips agent today, and i work in a store selling these tv's. I myself own the 40pfl8605h
the new firmware 140 does not include support for Ziggo nor does it include support for the PS3.
However, in the next few weeks there will be a new update. Dunno if they will come at the same time, but expect it soon.

7-December news (thanks to Petasis):
Sony released today firmware 3.55, which seems to solve the problem!
Member Petasis already tested "pain 3D" & "Gran Turismo 5" 3D on his 9705 with success!.

I have the 37'' versie 37pFL8605/12H. When is there a 3D support for this screen?? A larger screen does not fit my room.
i m also very annoyed about the poor 3d quality of my philips tv.
i have done a panel repair through the philips service and the pictures looking better but crosstalk is still there.
i m not sure about that my glasses are defect because the lot of ghosting..
is philips working on a better software or are the problems state of the art for philips 3d tv.
I heard that the 3d glasses have also influence to the ghosting (x-talk) problem...
I would like to concur with Gad's post above!
I am a loyal Philips customer.
Having covered all the bases with numerous replacements, cables and extra purchases we can confirm that after 4 TV's there is something very wrong.
3D is unwatchable!!!
The issue has been confirmed by shop sales assistants and reps!
I too would like an explanation.
Heard it too. When the shutter glasses don't open and close fast enough so you see an image with your right eye, that was meant to be seen only by the left eye and vice versa.

The explanation is simple: they didn't have 3D technology, the other brands were already selling 3D TVs, so they bought technology from another company (xpand) that was integrated in a hurry to some TVs...
So, no local dimming in 3D, no settings for 3D, no conversion of 2D to 3D, ugly cheap-plastic made glasses and a transmitter that you glue on the TV with sticky tape...
