    Hi

    I didnt realise if you sat below the screen the 3d doesn't work.

    Is this the same with Active?

    The vertical viewing angle is quite critical on a passive set so mounting position is very important.

    It's far less so on an active set.

    Note that the horizontal viewing angle is very wide indeed on passive.

    So what is the optimal mounting height?

    Perfect, would be mounted flat on the wall with the centre of the screen at eye height (when seated).

    If mounting on a TV table stand then it should be at the perfect height by default.
