3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have:

A Display

The first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect.

A Source

While your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3.


In order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience.

3D Glasses

All 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV.

HDMI Cable

To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

Had very high expectations for this player. The setup was very easy and the bluray playback was excellent. However, I did not purchase this JUST to play my blurays, my PS3 already does that just fine. I bought it for its streaming and Netcast features, which unfortunately work either satisfactory at best, or, in my case (specifically CinemaNow), not at all. CinemaNow just failed to connect, everything else did. CinemaNow support passed the blame to LG, and LG advised me to send the unit for servicing. I told LG that sending a product for servicing one day after receiving it is not an option. So, am returning it back to Amazon and will hunt for a different network streaming bluray player. LG customer support did try to help, but ultimately were unable to and like I said, having to have a brand new product serviced out of the box is simply not acceptable.

UPDATE 10/20/2010

LG customer support CAME THROUGH! Decided to give them one last chance and this time someone answered who actually knew what to do (I know, shocker!). Anyway, "Oscar" was very helpful and told me to reset the LG's IP address from AUTO to Manual and supplied a new IP address and CinemaNow works beautifully. All the other Netcast sites continued to work as well. I will be keeping this unit!!!

UPDATE 9/17/2012

I have just thrown this player in the trash. It stopped playing virtually all media, satisfactorily. Everything I put in it would stutter, digitize, or just plain not play at all. What a horrible piece of garbage. LG should be ashamed of itself (yeah, right). Updated to Panasonic DMP-BDT500 -- so far am very happy with it. It is a superior machine, both feature-wise and more importantly, construction-wise. So, in short, less than two years worth of playing, and LG craps out. No more LG for me.

I am mostly pleased with this Blu-ray player's features and performance. I have it connected via HDMI to a 3D-capable AV receiver and as expected it does a great job playing Blu-ray DVD's as well as upconverting standard DVD's. I haven't been able to test the 3D capability because I'm still undecided on a 3D TV. The networking capability works very well; I had no trouble connecting to my secure wireless-N network, but the wireless connection speed seems much lower than I'm getting on my notebook, probably due to the LG player being buried in a cabinet with other electronics. This means that streaming from the internet or a PC via DLNA is somewhat slow, and wired Ethernet would be advisable if you do heavy media streaming. Standard YouTube video streaming, however, worked pretty well due to the lower bandwidth requirement.

The only thing keeping me from giving this unit 5 stars is that the photo display capability has a serious limitation that is not documented and has not been remedied by LG tech support. In spite of the advice to keep JPEG's below 3000 by 3000 pixels (24 bits/pixels), I found that the image will not display properly if the file size exceeds 3.0 MB, regardless of pixel dimension. This problem was duplicated by LG tech support on images that I supplied them, but although they stated their engineers were working on the problem, it has not been fixed in over two months. This is probably not something that most people will care about, but if you want to stream photos from your PC for slide shows on your hi-def TV, the BX580 would be a good way to do it if it worked properly with normal JPEG files.

All in all, a very nice unit, especially considering the substantial discount price that is available on Amazon!

I got this as part of a deal when purchased with a 3D tv. This player has a feature called Homelink which allows you to play media off a network drive. I have a NAS that's on the network and this player plays everything I've thrown at it flawlessly. Its allowing me to move the mac mini I have to the bedroom since I no longer need a media pc. I can't attest to the 3d blu ray playback since there seems to be a lack of 3D blu ray discs but I'm impressed so far with what I've seen.

I got the BX580 is in a bundle from Amazon with the LG 55LX6500 LED 3D Internet 1080 HDTV, and 4 pairs of LG 3D glasses. This player has way more option than I need, and all the connections and capabilities are duplicated on the LG 55LX6500 HDTV. But for someone with an HDTV without those features, the player fills in the gaps.

When all the pieces were delivered and hooked up together, I played a new 3D Blu-Ray disk (Monster House 3D), as well as a new full 1080 HD DVD (Avatar). I also played a lot of older DVDs in the old standard 3:4:5 (1.33) analog TV format, some of which are only 720 resolution. They all play well, but only full 1080 HD sources have the razor sharp definition that is now the expectation. From now on, all I will buy are Blu-Ray. No more DVDs, though I'm glad I can still play my old inferior DVDs.

I don't have any negative issues with the BX580 player. It was a fantastic experience. The only negative I experienced was that 3D gives me a headache after awhile, but that is an issue with the active shutter technology, and not the player equipment.

Neither the LG player nor LG HDTV comes with HDMI cables, which are required for the best results. I originally had the player hooked to the TV with composite video cables and the analog sound (red-white audio cables) -- because I only ordered HDMI cables from Amazon after the player and TV were delivered and I found out HDMI cables were NOT included. If you want the full digital capability of this player, including 5.1 or 7.1 sound, then you must hook up with an HDMI cable. Those red-white-yellow RCA analog cables are for legacy (non-HDMI) analog peripherals you have.

You can hook up your digital 5.1 or 7.
