    I am finally getting a 3D. (thinking about going with an LG passive system) my question is this. I use a Sony home theater in a box system and I routs my PS3,Xbox and Direct TV system into that and then one HDMI from there in to my current TV. When I switch to 3D TV will I still be able to do that?? I know I will prob have to get new HDMI cables. But can I still run in through my surrond sound system?

    The receiver needs to be 3d ready. If it is, your set.

    Yup, optical from the ps3 to the receiver should work. I'm assuming your running your ps3 for bd playback.

    I had the lg passive and the input lag was horrible. Got the THX Panasonic GT30 and it's amazing. They're on clearance right now because of the new models coming out....55in for 1299.00 at BB
