3DTV Play Beta Instructions, Available for 3D Vision Owners

October 5th, 2010 · 13 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


As you probably already know the latest beta 260.63 drivers for the GeForce GPUs and 3D Vision do also come with beta support for the 3DTV Play software for the owners of 3D Vision. And today Andrew Fear, the product manager for 3D Vision at Nvidia, has published some documents with additional information regarding the 3DTV Play requirements and instructions for setting up and usage. If you do have a 3D-capable HDTV and 3D Vision and you still haven’t tried the 3DTV Play beta functionality in the latest beta drivers, then you should do it now. Below you’ll find links for downloading the two PDF documents, but before that lets see what are the supported 3D HDTVs and 3D-capable receivers that should work at the moment with the 3DTV Play beta software.

    i use an aw2310 for 3d gaming, picture viewing, and random 3d video from this website downloads. besides some backlight bleeding the monitor performs excellent with 3d vision. i was wondering if anyone has tried the 3dtv play with one of the tvs mentioned in this article and has also played 3d on my monitor or one of the current 23-24 inch 3d monitors. if so how is the comparison in quality of 3d? for example batman arkham asylum looks incredible in 3d on my monitor , how does it look on a 3dtv play tv? thanks for any feedback

    No PS50C7000 support… not that it really bothers be because;
    A: dont have a graphics card thats good enough,
    B: dont have 3D Vision and
    C: dont have my PC connected to my 3DTV anyway..
    but I’d like to have the option if I did. Hope support is added for the final release, I’ll be a good excuse to upgrade my PC and move my plasma into the study :D

    Do I uderstand correctly, that I can use the Panasonic TX-P42G20ES witch has 1 HDMI output suporting the 1.4 standard with my nVidia 3d computer ?
    p.s. I have a superduper HDTV PC :)

    I have a 3DTV plasma Samsung PS50C7700 (same as PS50C8000 in U.S.)

    With an HDMI 1.4 receiver as ONKYO TX-RS608 the Samsung 3DTV works very well with 3DTV PLAY… ;)

    Tried Batman AA in 3D 2x1920x1920@24p… Beautiful !!!

    Only the USB 3DVISION IR emitter is needed, not the glasses… Push the 3D button to activate 3D…

    The Samsung glasses are used for 3DTV PLAY in game…

    I suppose it depends on the results from the beta version for the 3D Vision owners, but hopefully by the end of the year it will be available as a final product for both 3D Vision owners (free) and as a standalone product for purchase if you don’t have the 3D Vision, but do have a 3D HDTV and want to use the 3DTV Play…

    I don’t know if guys realized but the Samsung 3D TV Plasma were left out of the requirement list. I own a Samsung 3D Plasma PN63C8000 and I’m in contact with Andrew and he said they found a bug with these TV’s that prevent 3DTV Play from working.
    Also, I can’t play bluray3D using PowerDVD 10 2213 version + 260.63 drivers + Sammy 3D Plasma. Bloody, if you have some time, take a look at this thread: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=182269

    Batshi, I can’t believe you were able to use 3DTV Play with your Plasma 3D TV, that sounds like music to my ears. You are the 1st guy that own a Sammy 3D Plasma and that states that was able to try the software. I guess not everything is lost for us Sammy 3D Plasma owners.
    Can you only make it work with the HDMI 1.4 receiver, or if you connect the HDMI cable directly from TV to PC will also work??? Please, let me kno that and email Andrew about that at afear(at)nvidia.com , he’s trying to find a solution for this problem. He gave me a link for software to get my TV’s EDID, so he can figure out what bugs these Plasma TV’s have with Nvidia drivers.

    Cheers…

    It works well with the LE40C750 and gForce 275 GTX (dvi to hdmi) :-)

    But with the 1080p limited at 24p on a game it’s awfull :( At least 720p 60fps is great :)

    I hope that my gtx 460 will work at 1080p 60hz when i will own my 3dtv

    3dtv play…..any chance on 8800 gtx??

    Hi , sorry but my english is not perfect so I need to understand exactly what I would like to know. I already have a 3D vision hw with a projector Acer H5360 and it works great. I’m going to buy an amplifier with 7.1 sound and I’m afraid that my PC won’t recognize anymore the projector as it will be connected by the amplifier in the middle (so the PC will recognize the amplifier and the 3D Vision won’t start). Is it correct to say that buying for example a Yamaha RX-V667 I won’t have this issue?
    Thanks for Your attention.

    Hello, I have a Sony 40HX800 3d tv, and it is supported and the 3d on it is amazing; BUT!!!

    How can I run 3d games in 1080p 60HZ, I know my tv supports all 3d, 1080p, and 240HZ, so why doesn’t my pc give out some 1080p 60HZ goodness???????

    appreciate any help

  • 13 Bloody // Nov 28, 2011 at 21:25

    The current HDMI 1.4 specifications limit you to only 24Hz 3D in 1080p resolution, there is currently no way to avoid that, so you need to play in 720p resolution where you can get 50 or 60 Hz per eye. The 240Hz listed in the features of your TV set are referring to an internal algorithm used for processing the input image, it is not referring to being able to accept 240Hz input from HDMI.
