3DTV play now works with HDMI checkerboard.

I just downloaded the beta driver 310.33 and paid for a license of 3DTV Play. FYI - This did not work with the 14 day trial period.

My TV is LG 60PZ550

I now have 1920 x 1080 x 60 Hz with 3D working.

I played Sleeping Dogs in 3D and noticed a big difference in quality from 1280 x 720 x 60 Hz.

The Nvidia forums have been down for months, but I think this is new.

Thanks!

Works for me on the trial though.

On a Samsung U*55D8000, checkerboard worked perfect with HDMI checkerboard mode.

Already had 3dtv trial installed, didn't reinstall after or anything.

Good things come to those who wait, maybe if this was released a few month ago when i had the 55es8000 i may of kept it, found it had too much lag in 3d though so racing games was a big no for me, it got returned.

I know when i used teh checkerboard for the es8000 it looked amazing, very nice 3d gaming image, infact the best i've seen :) and it has zero pixel trailing,ghosting in 3d at 60hz, this is what got me hooked on zero pixel response time 3d gaming, pushed me towards a dlp 120hz pj in the end and it has the best of both worlds, no input lag and what looks like a zero pixel response time allthough there is blur where there was'nt on the es8000, strange that a es8000 seems to have a better pixel response time than a dlp in 3d.

Great that it's finally here though,maybe some other options are coming soon, none of them are any good tome though as the 3dtv's have too much input lag in 3d tobe a 3d gaming tv.

3dvision interleaved and 120hz are still the best for zero added input lag 3d gaming so i'll stick with them ;)

Shame it came a bit too late for you.

As you say though, Checkerboard format delivers a really great pic. I used to use it with IZ3d and 1080p 60hz 3d is fantastic and hard to spot the difference between that and 1080p on the other modes.

I'm sure many will welcome it.

Thanks Mustang and Mocca for posting about this new Nvidia driver feature (BETA 3.10.33)! I usually skip beta releases so close to a WHQL release.

The 3.10 drivers + 3DTV Play provide a new dropdown option for Checkerboard in addition to 3D HD (HDMI 1.4a spec) on the 3D settings page. 1080p60MHz with 3D via Checkerboard (so up to 60 fps per eye) over HDMI cable is not as good as 1080p 2D but better than 720p. DLP means no ghosting. The ability to raise the brightness without added ghosting makes up for what Checkerboard does to fine lines like text.

For my Mitsubishi LaserVue L75-a94 an added benefit is the Nvidia driver can now compensate for the TVs overscan when playing games. Before the Checkerboard 3D mode only the desktop could be resized. When 3DTV play output the 3D HD video is was only at the standard 1080p or 720p resolutions. Now I can choose the resized output in the game settings. 1920x1080 is really 1824x1026 visible for my TV due to the overscan.


Kind of figures (but not surprising) that things start improving for Nvidia S3D with the Oculus Rift getting into the game.

Does anyone know of any 2013 HDTV's that still support 3D checkerboard. My LG 60PZ550 needs to be replaced. I really liked playing in 3D with 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz with checkerboard. LG still support it, but since my TV only lasted a little over 2 years, I would like to stay away from LG now.
