When Mitsubishi showed its 3DC-1000 3D converter box at CES, it was compatible with Samsung’s 3D-ready televisions. Both companies use the same checkerboard 3D format.
However, HD Guru Gary Merson reports Mitsubishi modified the box to restrict compatibility to its own 3D-ready rear-projection DLPs.
Thanks to new EDID messages sent with the converter’s HDMI signals, Samsung will no longer be able to receive 3D in HD via the Mitsubishi box.
