3D TV and nVidia - What is needed?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have two GTX480's and im planning on getting a 3D TV.

Just wondered what exactly do I need to play back from PC to TV either for movies or gaming as http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/3dtv-play-requirements-uk.html leads me to believe that I need a IR Kit, would a simple HDMI or DVI link not work?

You will connect your PC to your TV via HDMI cable.

 

And than puchase the 3D TVPlay software.

 

You can trial it for 14 days.

Sweet, so I don't need the IR kit?

Nope you don't at all. thumb.gif

 

That IR kit is for 3Dvision.

 

Remember though with 3DTvplay you can only game either at 720p 60hz or 1080p 24hz.

 

If you want 1080p 60hz, you need to get a TV with checkerboard 3D format. However this is an unpopular format and most TV manufacturers dropped it in recent years. 

 

My Samsung 8 series from 2010 supports checkerboard, but for example the 2011 version of the same TV does not.

yep. Due to HDMI 1.4 limitations 1080p 24 fps max. Which sux.

 

The reason that checkerboard can do 1080p @ 60 fps because with that format you get 960*1080p resolution per eye. Hence it can support 1080p 60 fps

With AMD you get Tridef. I honestly think it is better than 3DTvplay at 720p. 3DTVplay is very good if checkerboard method is used, however there are few TVs that support checkerboard nowadays.

 

Therefor Tridef is a good alternative, but last I check tridef did not support NVIDIA SLI. I am not sure if it changed recently. The OPs 480 SLI might be useless with Tridef.
