Tru3D Samsung 3D AdapterVia Electronic House (by way of HD Guru) comes a bit of news that should please owners of Samsung DLP TVs looking to expand their 3D content options beyond PC sources. A new adapter kit from Tru3D, available for $298.99 in early August 2010, gives Samsung DLP TVs the capability to play 3D content on 3D-ready devices such as Blu-ray, cable, satellite, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Mitsubishi owners have been able to enjoy expanded 3D content with the help of the 3DC-A1 “checkerboard” converter. Tru3D’s Adapter Kit for Samsung DLP TVs includes the Mitsubishi 3DA-1 adapter and an EDID spoofer that essentially tricks the kit into passing a 3D signal on to a Samsung TV.

Playing tricks in order to get one’s television to do anything might sound devious, but Samsung DLP owners should have access to the same range of content as those watching other sets. Tru3D provides that access with this affordable, easy-to-use kit.

Tru3D’s Adapter Kit for Samsung DLP TVs is compatible with the following models:

HL-T5076S 50″ (127cm) 1920×1080 (1080P) checkerboard 3D Lamp DLP

    Mitsubishi now have available the 3DC-100S kit that works with Samsung sets without use of the Tru3D adapter.

    This simple procedure appears to unlock the Mits 3DC-1000 / 3DA-1 so it works with the Samsung 3D DLP sets!

    1. Power off the adapter (leave everything plugged in and connected)
    2. Press and hold the 3D Mode button then press and hold the Power button
    3. Observe the 3D status light until it blinks. You want it to blink once, if it blinks twice (5 seconds apart) then restart at step 1.
    4. After you get the unit to blink once, release the Power button then release the 3D Mode button.
