When you first plug your new 3dtv in to your ps3 with the 3.30 downloaded firmware you should go in to the display settings as if you are setting it up again where you only had options for 1080 or 720 i think there is now 1080 3d aswell so you choose that.
Now once you start your 3d game it starts in normal 2d but then on super stardust anyway it is part of the normal game menu asking you play 3d or 2d you choose 3d and it then says put your glasses on e.t.c so you dont need to press the 3d button or choose side by side or any of that.
I only have hdmi 1.3 so dont really know why you need a 1.4
Yes John, I will experiment again later actually, as it was late last night when I was setting it up. I originally had my 1.3 HDMI cable connected but when I ran up one of the 3D games it didn't think I had a 3D panel. So I just swapped it for my 1.4 HDMI cable - this process in fact started the Detection process again and let me add the 2 3D Options.
Its very likely my 1.3 HDMI cable will work, I just didn't do a forced re-detection after I'd updated my s/w - I think swapping the cables over 'live' so to speak initiated this and the 1.4 cable was not relevant - as I also thought you didn't need a 1.4 cable for PS3 or SKY 3D viewing.
Anyway - I needed some new cables anyway, so now have four 1.4 cables - they seem quite cheap on Amazon at £5.99 a pop!
By the way I was playing Super Stardust HD in 3D this morning - Amazing it just the word for it, the way they scroll the Star Field looks spot on - a different experience from MotorStorm which is also very good the way the ground comes right out of the TV. Again it's the little effects that gets your attention. In the racing game the way the Mud splutters out of screen and when you crash bits go flying everywhere. In Stardust when you get destroyed is a really good 3D explosion effect, and also when you're zapping stuff, and the fireworks that go off at the end of Level.
It's impressive stuff indeed, if anyone had any doubts!
