Mitsubishi modified the box to restrict compatibility to its own 3D-ready rear-projection DLP’s only.
A great idea
A dongle to upgrade compatible TV’s to a 3D TV …

Way to go to limit your target audience …
Are you sure?
In a indirect way, yes
[B](May 6, 2010)[/B] Mitsubishiâ€™s soon to be launched HD converter box permits viewing a 3D HD Blu-ray player, 3D cable or satellite signal on any of its 3D ready HDTVs. The 3DC-1000, which debuted at the January 2010 consumer electronics show, converts HD 3D content to the checkerboard format used in all 3D ready HDTV rear projectors produced since 2007.
In 2007 and 2008 Samsung offered 3D ready HDTVs for PC gaming that used the same checkerboard format. Recently, Mitsubishi decided to modify the 3DC-1000 to restrict compatibility to its own TVs, via the EDID identification data sent along with the HDMI signal.
According to Mitsubishiâ€™s director of product planning David Naranjo, the 3DC-1000 converter will not accept the ID from these Samsung 3D ready HDTVs and so wonâ€™t pass the 3D signal in high definition.
Note: Mitsubishi never announced its converter would be compatible with 3D capable TVs other than its own.
