Nvidia 3DTV Play Support Update Utility Extends Compatibility

November 18th, 2010 · 10 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


It seems that Nvidia is working hard in further improving the support for the 3DTV Play before releasing it as a standalone product probably by the end of this month. They just made available an update utility (not a standalone driver release!) that needs to be installed over GeForce driver v260.99 or v262.99 in order to update the list of supported 3D TVs by adding 18 new models from manufacturers like Philips, Samsung, Sony and Vizio. The update is more important for owners of owners of Samsung 3D-capable TVs that were not supported as the update introduces support for 9 additional models and if yours is still not in the list, then you can help Nvidia to add it by reporting your TV’s EDID info to them.

The list of 18 new HDMI 1.4 TVs that are now supported:

– Philips 40PFL8605H/12
– Philips 46PFL8605H/12
– Philips 52PFL8605H/12
– Samsung PN50C8000YF
– Samsung PN58C7000
– Samsung PN63C8000YF
– Samsung PS50C7000
– Samsung PS50C7700
– Samsung PS50C7705
– Samsung PS58C7000
– Samsung PS63C7000
– Samsung PS63C7700
– Sony KDL-40HX805
– Sony KDL-40NX710
– Sony KDL-46NX710
– Vizio XVT3D424SV
– Vizio XVT3D474SV
– Vizio XVT3D554SV

    They want customers to send the EDID of each TV individually to them for addition to a giant list of 3D TVs in the driver?
    DOING IT WRONG.

    Surely there is just a “3D Supported” bit set somewhere, My PS3 can detect 3D TVs without needing a list!

    Yes, in theory… that is why we have standards such as the HDMI 1.4(a) used in these 3D HDTVs, but apparently there are some issues with some of them.

    Hi,

    Is there any TV supporting 3D vision full HD 120Hz ?
    As the HMDI 1.4a only support 720p or 1080/24p with shutter glasses, is the DVI DL is the only link supporting full HD 120Hz ?

  • 4 Bloody // Nov 18, 2010 at 12:19

    For the moment 120Hz at 1080p are only possible with DL DVI. All of the currently available HDMI 1.4(a) 3D HDTVs are limited to 1080p 24Hz 3D mode and 720p 50/60 Hz 3D mode…

    My Samsung PS58C7000 still does work with a GTX460 even with the patch. Shame

    Bloody:
    720p/60Hz is 60Hz per eye (=120Hz) 1080p is 24Hz per eye.

    gsolid: Try this workaround:

    While I’m glad the software now supports more TVs, it would be great if it didn’t just support them somewhere in the bowels of Nvidias development studios. ;-) *hint hint*

    Nanite:
    Bloody is correct in his description. 720px2@60Hz is not close, but really not equal to 720p@120Hz. The main area in which this’ll be likely noticeable is 120Hz 2D gaming. (The gfx card will output updates every twice as slowly.) Not to mention that 2D 720px2 isn’t supported by the graphics drivers atm.

    Belo my Sharp Quattron 3D don’t work. 3DTV Play crash any time during setting!

    My “Toshiba REGZA 42GZ1 in japan” is “not HDMI 1.4 compatible” would become.
    I want to support by all means!
    It’s supported HDMI 1.4(nVidia Controll Palen is enable stereo settings).
