I've a LG 3D TV but never used the 3D feature.

Yesterday I watched the women's final and today I watched Murray's match.

The 3D was fantastic and really enhanced my viewing.

However after both matched I had a terrible headache; I very, very rarely get headaches so can only presume it is connected.

Anyone else experience this?

Oh, and well done Andy.

Is it an active 3D set, with the powered glasses or passive 3D? because i did read once that active 3D can sometimes cause headaches.

Surely if its a LG it will be the proper passive system that does not flicker unlike the dreadful active system which induces flicker and therefor headaches !

No, some LG TVs (plasma AFAIK) use Active 3D

The "idiot" on QVC was saying yesterday about this is active 3d not passive which gives you headaches, i go to the cinema very often to see 3d and i have an LG passive set.
Not once have i known anyone who has had headaches from either (and a lot of my friends already wear glasses), nor have i seen conclusive proof that this happens because of passive 3d, it is more than likely the "user" who needs to seek advice for a possibly worsening eye problem.
The problem is that it is now becoming an urban myth that 3d gives you headaches. The odd person maybe but not everyone.

It's a LM660T - passive smart TV.

Eyesight not as good as it used to be, but never had a problem with headaches before.

I did not know LG made such dinosaurs as this -- there advertising makes much of there passive system and there is a youtube demo showcasing passive . I don't own either but at freinds I can watch passive with ease but I can't even do 5 mins on a active screen .

Not from the BBC

BBC places 3d programming on indefinite hold
