    To 3D or not to 3D, that is the question.

    I tried viewing it in 3D but I just can't cross my eyes to get the side by side images together. Oh well.

    3D? No thank you.

    3D became popular in the 1950s and 1980s. Now that we're in the 2010s, I'm just waiting for it to die a death again, like it usually does every 30 years.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Olympic Games and 3D TVs - the perfect mix?

    Nope not interested in 3D at all, seen a few films at the IMAX and to be honest wasn't overly impressed. Its nice but its just not for me!

    On the plus side though I do manage to get a free headache everytime I watch anything in 3D a feat only the wife can usually create with their constant nagging!
    Thanks,
    Sacred

    Re: Features - QOTW: Olympic Games and 3D TVs - the perfect mix?

    The opening ceremony in 3D was outstanding and so is SOME of the footage, though for general filming the cameras are too reserved and don't capture great moments as well as planned filming.

    I'm using a panasonic plasma and active 3d btw, is great at night, in day can be a bit head-achy and on TV currently you sacrifice half of your resolution for 3D. If they could get the quality upto the standard of a 3d bluray and/or integrate it with super hi-def then it's a great combination.

    Basically a few niggly bits but once they're gone, there's little reason to not watch in 3d.

    If I'd been able to watch the opening in 3D I would have, but I don't have a dish.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Olympic Games and 3D TVs - the perfect mix?

    The side by side 3D is not the way forward when watching 3D, you lose the HD res, standard HD channels are much better on the eye & that's what I'll be watching the Olympics.

    I'll be save 3D for my BD disc's...

    On a side note, well done to the BBC for trying 3D this way, I know Wimbledon last year was the first screening BBC did of 3D over a free terrestrial channel, also Loving all the extra HD channels on Free sat. Glad to see my licence fee going this way & not to line a so called presenters pocket for rubbish chat shows, that's what ITV is for & the relentless adverts that pay for it !

    3D gives me migraine, so do the Olympics. I'll be watching neither.

    I think SxS is used because it's the only way to guarantee usability by people with varying equipment - e.g. someone with a non-3D-aware Freesat box can still use SxS, whereas they can't use frame packed streams (HDMI 1.4) as the recorder won't know to record the subchannels, and isn't physically capable of sending a "real" 3D signal without HDMI 1.4 compliance. Similarly Sky HD boxes are only HDMI 1.2
