As far as i know the tv does the IR synching not the ps3. the ps3 will generate a 120hz output (input for the tv) will recognize the 3d state and the refresh rate and sync the glasses.
And before anyone jumps the gun. Yes I am aware that the ps3 is not hdmi1.4 compliant. meaning it does not have the 100mbps ethernet inside the hdmi plug.

for question, if there is a custom firmware in near future.. do you think it is possible to hack the 3d system that it works on 3d beamer (120hz) or similiar systems and not only works on sony 3d tvs?
i saw the 3d pack for pain, cheered and grabbed it. the only modes that had the 3d symbol were mime toss and clown toss.
grabbed my red and blue glasses, loaded one up, nothing no 3d effect no double lines with out the glasses on.
so i tried a pair of glasses from the cinema 3d (tinted things) nothing no 3d effect whatso ever..
seems unless you have £2500 spare you cant have 3d sony!
I'm in the same boat with you mrgreaper!
I got a free voucher for Pain when I bought my PS3. So I've had the game for quite some time. I also have a 65" dlp hdtv that's 3D capable.
I set my tv to 3D mode. I loaded up Pain (after downloading the update, and the free 3D packs from the store). When I go into the levels, nothing has changed! The screen looks like it always does. I'm not sure if there's an option we have to select to force it into 3D?
I also downloaded the Super Stardust HD demo, thinking that maybe there would be something in there that would give the option, and nothing.
Has anyone gotten the 3D to work? And if so, was it automatic or did it give an extra option somewhere to use it? It would really suck if you could only use the "latest" tv's for 3D.
For those that can't see 3d on their 3d tv. Do you need to reset the ps3 video settings? (either via the settings or press and hold the power button). I assume the latest firmware has some additional smarts to recognise the new mode.
You need the latest FW. It has enable 3d in settings, I believe.
