This article provides an overview of Cox 3DTV.
Here's what you need to view 3DTV programs:
- A 3DTV set that supports the HDMI 1.4 specification (these 3DTVs are dated February 2010 or newer).
Note: A “3D-Ready” TV purchased before February 2010 will not work with current 3D programming.
- Subscription to Cox Advanced TV service
- Cox HD or HD/DVR receiver connected to the 3DTV via an HDMI cable
- The TV manufacturer's specified 3D glasses to view programming
- The Cox HD signal
Note: Some 3D programming may not be accessible on CableCARD devices. Other conditions may apply.
The following manufactures offer 3D televisions that are compatible with the HDMI 1.4 specification.
Frequently Asked Questions
Specifically look for "HDMI 1.4" on your TV to determine whether or not it is compatible. Any "3D-Ready" TV purchased before February 2010 will not be compatible with HDMI 1.4 and therefore will not work.
- Confirm that your new TV is 3D-capable and includes the HDMI 1.4 specification for today's 3D broadcasts.
- Confirm that your Cox HD or HD/DVR receiver has an HDMI output connection; and that the receiver is connected to your 3DTV's HDMI input via any HDMI cable.
- Tune to the advertised Cox 3D channel number.
- Manually switch your 3DTV to 3D mode using the remote that came with the 3DTV. See:
- How to: Switch the Samsung 7000 Series 3DTV to 3D Mode
- How to: Switch the Panasonic VT20 Series 3DTV to 3D Mode
- Put on your 3D glasses, sit back, and enjoy!
Note: The Program Guide is not 3D. After changing your TV setting to 3D mode, the Cox on-screen programming guide will become distorted and illegible. After you have finished viewing in 3D, switch your TV back to 2D (also called HDTV mode) and the on-screen guide will be restored.
