    I want to buy a 2d to 3d converter blu ray player so I can watch blu-ray movies and porn in 3D.

    You can buy a Panasonic 3D which has a built in 2D to 3D converter. I have one and while I don't watch much 3D because I don't like it, the converter works pretty well.

    You mentioned Samsung TV's having a converter... I just bought a 55" 6500 series LED TV from them, and if their dvd players are using the same mock 3d tech.... I would look elsewhere.

    If you want the be-all bluray player at a sane price, just scoop up a PS3 second hand or on sale. You aren't going to find anything at the price point as quick at loading menus or skipping through scenes, or as multimedia handy. Plus they have pretty robust support for various codec's if you're ever going to dump crap onto a usb drive (cept' for x264 MKV's that you need to convert :34:). Won't do 2d > 3d up-converts though.

    I don't really get the 3D thing though. The first time I tried to fix my glance onto the background and was greeted by blur because the director/editor deemed that portion insignificant put me off...


    Be a baller and buy an Anthem dvd player :naughty:

    Try PS3 Media Server. It even supports external subtitles.

    Wha :confused:, you mean like streaming from a PC media server to the PS3, orrr is this an application you can physically install?

    Right now I just download 720p or 1080i rips and stick them onto a USB stick, after conversion, of course.

    Yes, a media server from your PC. It has some neat options, and most importantly can handle mkvs.

    I'm waiting until 3D enables one to have more physical contact with the viewer.
    Like licking a big cock coming from my screen. :tongue:

    I would think upconverting to 3D might be cheaper with a computer.

    Not to change the subject, but how well does 2 - 3D upconverting work? I never thought about it, but it sounds interesting. I still don't think I like 3D enough to buy the electronics for it. Something to look into I guess.

    You would really be balling with an Anthem A/V setup!

    Once you spend that kind of money, then you have to engineer the room with all of the sound trapping and focusing devices :biggrin1:

    Getting the equipment to play 3D is the easy part, picking an actual TV takes forever. Best options? I have the PS3 and a 2 sets of JBL speakers (old school). What the best TV on the market?
