    Hello all,

    I have recently bought a 50" LG 3D plasma TV which is very nice and all, the problem I have is.

    I have the game Halo:Combat Evolved and noticed it has a 3D option. So I tried it but the image is weird, not like 3D ive seen on other TV's. On My LG I can seen two images overlapped,like the image has been split down the middle and each image is streched to fit the screen and when I look through with my 3D glasses I still see both images. Also If i cover one eye (with my 3D glasses on) I can see one half of the image and vice versa. But I can also see the oposite image slightly too.

    Im not sure if the problem is my TV, my Xbox 360 or me. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    P.S I connect my Xbox to my TV with a VGA lead.

    Sorry, but I think you need to use a HDMI 1.4 Cable to properly transmit the 3D Signal.

    As far as I know, you will need to have an HDMI 1.4 cable to properly transmit the 3D signal. I thought I remember 3D not being able to enable unless it detects a 3D tv, but using VGA might confuse it.

    You might want to try the RGB Component HD cables. I have heard some games like Gears of War 3 work with component cables. Based on the way it sounds like it sends the signal, it may work.
