What I meant by "3D-ready" is that Mistubishi makes TVs that CAN do 3D but need a separate hardware purchase to do so. The screens can do it but the TV can't process it (or so I assume.)

This is only true of TVs made a couple of years ago or more which were built before the current 3D standards were finished. They handle 3D just fine, but it has to be in a different format. Most DLP and some older 3D plasmas required checkerboard input, which generally meant the signal needed to come from a PC, except for a few exceptions like the Avatar game that supported checkerboard natively on consoles. There are also some blu-ray players that will output in checkerboard.

All the external box does is convert the frame-packed or side-by-side content to checkerboard. More recent models have the converter built in, so no external box is needed.
