Thank you, Hans. It looks as if Sony has what it takes for compatibility with computers! The 3D TV that first attracted me to this idea was a Panasonic Plasma type, and Paul's post suggests that this would have been a disappointment.

It was the 3D function that first drew my attention. I  have now seen  Korean (LG) 3D TV at a bargain price and will be looking at it today on my trip into central Tokyo.
