Acer GD235HZ - 3D Vision = 3D Blu Ray?!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have had the Acer GD235HZ for quite some time now.

It has a nVidia 3D Vision ready sticker on it. I have updated drivers for my GTX 580.

I just got Hobbit Blu-ray and it comes with a 3D copy. I have a blu-ray optical drive in my computer. I have downloaded the plugins for VLC that enables me to watch blu ray on my computer.

Can I watch it in 3D with this setup? What do I need to do to get the 3D "working" ?

Thanks!

As far as software, I've never tried to use VLC for playback. I have a dedicated media center PC so I use ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 5 (TMT5). Just pop the movie in and will start playing, works flawlessly.

I believe they have a free trial if you just want to play around and give it a shot. Cyberlink's PowerDVD also has a free trial you can use to try it out.

You didn't mention whether or not you have a pair of 3D glasses, but if you don't you will also need the nVidia 3D glasses kit. It comes with the emitter you need to hook up to your PC and a pair of glasses.

You'll also be able to play games in 3D which is a nice bonus smile.gif
