    Good morning everyone!
    My name is Rodrigo and a long been thinking of building a small theater that integrates my gadgets and stay with reasonable quality.
    My question is whether the items are compatible and equivalent, how i connect all of them and if i will get good project using these items, and if people have any changes to suggest. As the people here have much more experience than me, I count on your help.
    I want to integrate:
    PC + Home Theater Projector 3D + + PS3 + Cable TV HD
    The following items:
    3D Sound Card for PC

    3D 1080p Projector

    3D Home Theater Wifi w / Blu-Ray

    To facilitate, I'll put here also the connections of the apparatus of the PS3 and Cable TV.

    I have to buy the 3D glasses that model? I can watch everything in 3D? How to connect all these devices together? Sorry so many questions .... I do not know if it's relevant, but my PC's video card is a Geforce GTX 570.
    Thank you guys!

    I looked at your link for the 3D Home Theater Wifi w / Blu-Ray - and found this customer comment:
    SC-BTT273 5.1 Ch. Full HD 3D Blu-ray:
    "The webpage states 2 HDMI inputs. This model has NO HDMI inputs. You have to go to the BTT370 to get 2 HDMI inputs."
    This is a cheaper all in 1 unit HTIB that is not upgrade-able - if something goes wrong with it, you have to replace the whole thing..
    -- So you will be able to play 3d blu-ray disks from this player to the TV over HDMI, but will not be able to connect the PS3 to the system for sound.
    With no HDMI inputs - you will not get the best sound from the PS3 or your cable box....if possible, I would upgrade to at least that model (http://www.frys.com/product/6769625?source=googleps)....than use HDMI cables to hook up the PS3 to the receiver, the Cable box to the receiver - and an HDMI cable from the receiver to the Projector.
    For the sound card - states it has an optical digital output for the sound....hook up a toshlink cable from the sound card to the player...that will get the sound portion. For the video from your computer to the projector -
    On the projector - for inputs is states it has:
    Inputs 2 HDMI v1.4a, 1 VGA, 1 component video, 1 composite video, 1 mini-din (IR emitter), 1 RS-232, 1 +12V trigger, 1 VESA 3D port

    I looked up your link - and from a customer review there:
    "The 3D glasses are sold separately and are pricey, but work fantastic. "
    Found the glasses -they are $74.74 Each...
    http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-Technology-BG-3DRFGLASSES-Rechargeable-Glasses/dp/B005JRMLVK/ref=pd_b
    From another customer review on this projector - I found the following that compared the RF (the ones above )and the DLP link glasses - this person seems to prefer the DLP ones...and they are actually a little cheaper..:
    "It will work just fine with the DLP Link glasses, I prefer this one over the RF glasses. I've tried those in the past, just couldn't bear the flickering, you wont see flickering on the DLP link ones."
    Optoma BG-ZD101 DLP Link 3D Glasses with 3 Interchangeable Nose Pieces - $69.88
    http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-BG-ZD101-Glasses-Interchangeable-Pieces/dp/B003Q96CCC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1336074558&sr=8-2
    From another review form the DLP glasses above - looks like there is a setting in the projector to get it working...no external transmitter needed...
    "Works well with Optoma HD33.
    What I like:
    DLP link glass. Very simple to set it up. Go to the projector menu, find something like 3D setting, and look for DLP link to turn it on. That's it."
