Avatar got you all jazzed up for 3D at home, but the thought of buying a new 3D gear dragging you down? The HDMI Licensing group has solved half your 3D problem; all devices with HDMI 1.3 connectors with an Internet connection can be upgraded to output 3D. Unfortunately, you'll still need a new HDMI 1.4-enabled 3D HDTV to view these HDMI 1.3-upgraded 3D content.
You'll get only half or a quarter of the full 1080p 3D with the upgrade, however; HDMI 1.3's limited bandwidth is only wide enough to supply 1080i 3D images from a Blu-ray player or a satellite receiver, and just 540i 3D from your cable box. I've been told the difference between full 1080p 3D and 540i 3D is essentially the difference between Blu-ray and DVD, which means you'll likely see a noticable difference on larger sets, which for most folks is hardly enough to justify spending another $400 on a new HDMI 1.4 box.
