      yeah the tv does the decoding/detection. Sky's version is called side by side (sbs) but it also comes as over under (OU) which places the seperate images on top of each other.

      what you are seeing is the two images squished horizontally. This means that sky's 3d is more akin to 720p due to both images being presented in the single 1080i frame space.

      If you were to <ahem> acquire a downloaded scene rip of a 3d movie they mostly come in the same format and are called half-sbs. again the image is 1920x1080 split in half and are around the same size as a normal rip. you can also get full-sbs which are double the resolution wheighing in at at 3840x2160. These are the equivalent of a full blown blu-ray presentation. However none of our media centres are capable of playing these files back.

      yeah our set has a hardened panel on the front that is very reflective. You also dont want any direct light going into the glasses cause it flickers like mad.
