Nvidia's store doesn't allow Australian's to buy 3dtvplay from nvidia store digital download.
I emailed them but no response from them.
I tried my Australian credit card Visa and the site said invalid location of funding source.
I tried Nvidia india and Australia is still unlisted as a valid purchase country.

Can anyone help or explain why Australia is left out?

It seems the problem is not only for Australia, there was a report form user that it is the same situation in UK as well:

Not sure if this is connected or not in any way to the recent problems that Nvidia had with their community websites...

The alternative for now is to look for a cheap IR emitter on eBay or ask a friend from another country to get you the license.

Thanks I already have a legit Nvidia USB emitter but not a 3dvision ready monitor - currently an AOC passive HDMI 1.4 3d monitor which is recognized as a generic CRT
by Nvidia drivers but my secondary screen is a HDMI 1.4a Passive LG 3dtv and is detected by Nvidia driver as a DLP (checkerboard) 3dtv without a VESA connection instead of HDMI 1.4a 3dtv
so won't work. I installed 3dtv play trial software then it worked properly with the LG 3dtv as a HDMI 1.4a 3d screen. But the trial has run out so I uninstalled 3dtv play.
When I did own an old 3d vision ready monitor it 3dtv play worked properly then but not with the AOC monitor.

For passive 3D monitors and 3D HDTVs I'd recommend to use this method to make them work:
http://3dvision-blog.com/7163-make-your-passive-3d-monitor-or-3d-hdtv-work-with-3d-vision/

This way you get 1080p 60Hz 3D mode instead of 1080p 24Hz 3D one that you only get using HDMI 1.4 interface.

Had trouble with the zalman monitor override after a few reboots where
windows wouldn't most of the time load properly get a background screen with mouse cursor but no icons or task bar, a system restore got the old monitor driver
back now booting fine again. Guess it's the nvidia driver maybe the problem.

Have you tried with the Acer driver as well, it might be working better than the Zalman one.

Yes I tried the Acer first, it worked but on reboot got no signal as it's DVI and driver is for HDMI I think. If I unplug monitor then replug it in it works properly then.
