    I have an issue with BBC HD 3D content which I believe I'm alone in as I can't find any posts on here with same problem.

    The TV detects 3D and switches to the side by side view - however it also starts to flash / flicker as soon as this switch happens. The 3D content seems to be correct (i.e. a single 3D image) its just the flashing makes it unwatchable.

    Updated to latest firmware (10.14) which made no difference. Issue is the same on freesat and freeview. Tried various changes to picture and 3D settings but nothing stops it.

    I've posted a video of the problem on youtube - this shows the flashing for all of the 3D modes (with side by side producing a correct single picture) and that the only way to get rid of it is to switch to non 3D content.

    3D blu rays through PS3 play fine, as does the smart hub 3D content.

    Anyone facing the same issue or have I got a faulty TV?

    I appreciate that but the OP said he was having trouble with BBC HD 3D.

    Still the same last night, unfortunately the only time I can check is the daily 11pm 3D highlight show! Will try again tonight to see what happens.

    anorax25 - are you using the built in freeview / freesat tuner or an external unit? I'm having the problem with the built in tuners.

    Hi Klanker,

    Aaah, I'm going through SKY. I will try the Freeview 3D connection tomorrow.

    Here's hoping it's not the TV.

    Oh dear. Just checked mine via Freeview BBC HD and it's fine. Sorry mate, looks like you have an issue, if it's still the same at 23:07 July 30th.

    Forget the Horlicks, I'll have another small wine.
