Hi All,
I am trying to 3D progressive playback on PS3 (Firmware 3.5).
But it won't playback in 3D...i guess it playbacks base view video only (2D).
(It was succeded on Samsung BDP.)
Blu-ray spec said the following.
- Existing Game consoles are not required to implement all functions defined in the BDAV-STD model in Stereoscopic Output Mode even if the Existing Game Console has the Profile5 indicator of PSR31 set to 1. (Part3 P.8.3)
- As defined in Part 3-1 Section 8.2.4, the Existing Game Console does not support the BD-J application environment during Stereoscopic Output Mode. (Par3 P.11.1.1)

Also the firmware 3.5 has limitations on Blu-ray 3D disc playback below.

  • Depending on the content, some BD-J (Blu-ray Disc™ Java*) features such as BONUSVIEW™ and BD-Live™ may not play in 3D or may not function properly on the PS3™ system.

Is it impossible 3D progressive playback on PS3?
Thank you for your advance.

This might be an obvious question but after updating the VFS are you starting a BD Title that is BDJ or HDMv? If you are starting a BD-J then it won't work on a PS3.
