    Seems that Netflix and Dreamworks' partnership is still solid--
    In addition to plugging an "exclusive" half-hour (2D) featurette for Mr. Peabody & Sherman, the 3D version of Turbo is now available, for those who, er......probably missed it in theaters.
    (And yes, that's the movie, not the cheesy-looking Nicktoon series, although they put in a promo for that too.)

    At this rate, I should probably not bother to rush to the theaters for MP&S3D, it'll probably be up by fall.

    Anyone know why Netflix 3D is available on the Sony 5100 but NOT on the higher-end flagship, dual-HDMI 790????

    I've never been successful at getting any 3D content from Netflix to play in 3D. It's always in 2D. I suppose I'm doing something wrong, but I have no clue what it is.

    Does it say its in 3D? If yes, and you cannot play in 3D its probably your connection speed is too slow.

    Yes, it says it's 3D. Wouldn't having too slow a connection have some sort of indicator? I click on a 3D title, and it plays in 2D. I have Neflix, via my LG TV, LG 3D Blu-ray player, TiVo and Roku. It works on none of those. All are all directly connected. Not WiFi. Maybe it's a FIOS thing? I know it required fast service, but I've never had a single issue with any connections. Even with multiple people connected, we never experience any slow downloads. Normal streaming works beautifully. I tend to think it's something else, but if I need a faster connection, I have no clue how to do that. I have the fastest that FIOS offers.

    Does it start to dowload (shows 20%, 30%, etc. loading) but then gives you a message of "retry or play it in 2D" ? I get that sometimes. Other times it just starts playing it in 3D.

    I'm using a Sony PS3 and I first get the prompt "Do you want to play this title in 3D?". Select YES and then "3d signal has been detected" from the Sony KDL55NX810 TV.

    Retry, darnit! (Just means your connection isn't quick enough, but you'll still be able to get it in bits and pieces while it reloads. If you give it long enough to reload.)

    No. There's never any download issue or question or anything. It just starts playing in 2D.

    My stuff still doesn't support 3D, but I've heard the new Netflix software also breaks into the end credits to promote crap- if that's the case I guess I can live without it.

    It registered 31.78 mbps - the Netflix page says I need minimum of 6mbps and best at 12 mbps. No clue why I can't do this.

    When I was first getting my 3D setup going, I ended up having an HDMI cable in the mix that wasn't up to spec for 3D - is it possible that could be the case?I just got error messages until I replaced it and then it finally all worked.

    Well, all my 3D Blu-rays look incredible. I'm just giving up on the streaming. It's not like there's a lot I want to see, anyway.

    Just checked and only 19 3D titles (The Hole, Turtle's Tale, etc.) listed under their 3D grouping.

    Yes, I contacted the tech staff at Netflix and they will try to get this fixed soon.

    And no 3D titles are available for streaming in Canada, which is bloody annoying.
