Hi,
I believe the 110 is a 3dvision only 3d projector, it will do other types of 3d but you would need to buy something like a optoma 3d-xl converter.

Sadly the 3d bluray player you have will not output 3d as 3d bluray players use hdmi 1.4 3d and your pj uses 120hz for 3d.

So to sum it up.
You have the wrong 3d pj for a 3d bluray player.


However you can use something like powerdvd in conjunction with a nvidia card to play 3d blurays from a pc or laptop.
Acer 110 is only 3d from a pc ;)

If the projector was with a native 720p resolution you could also get an adapter to convert HDMI 1.4 3D output from the 3D Blu-ray player to the frame sequential format that such a project could understand. Though it might be an easier thing to go for a 720p 3D-capable projector with HDMI 1.4 support than to buy an adapter as these adapters are not very cheap. In your case however the Acer X110 is with 800x600 native resolution which is not suitable for use with a standalone Blu-ray 3D player, though you may be able to make it work using a PC as a video player. But again getting a 720p 3D projector with HDMI 1.4 could be the easiest thing to do to make things work.

You might be able to use software player with Blu-ray 3D support such as PowerDVD to play it from your laptop, however these software players also do have some requirements regarding what hardware they support and what output modes for 3D they work with, so you need to check if your laptop has the appropriate hardware that you can make things work.
