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
http://www.bestbuy.c...=hd33&cp=1&lp=1

3D Home Theater Wifi w / Blu-Ray
http://www.amazon.co...cnet_mp-3450-20

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/...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 have to buy the 3D glasses that model?

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.co...JRMLVK/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.co...36074558&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."
