Problem playing 3D content on Apple TV 2

Hey guys,

I have a Samsung 3D TV (6 series) and an apple TV 2. I'm trying to play 3D content (SBS files) from the apple tv 2 (streaming from my NAS). The movie does play, but in "3d" mode the picture is visibly blurry. The 3d effect is still there, but it seems like the two images from side-by-side are not lining up exactly with one another (fuzzy would be the right term, I guess).

To make sure it wasn't the TV or the movie itself, I played it from a USB. 3D mode works perfectly directly from the TV.

The only two problems I see now could be:

1. HDMI cable connecting the apple TV to the TV (This is a couple of years old, and I'm not sure if it could be the problem)
2. Apple TV is on my wifi network (and hence streaming wirelessly from my NAS. still not sure if this could be the problem since all other videos play perfectly).

Any ideas would be highly appreciated.
