Quick User Tutorial for Enabling 3DTV Play on Any HDMI 1.4 Device

April 28th, 2011 · 6 Comments · General 3D News

If you are having trouble setting up a 3D HDTV or a 3D monitor that uses HDMI 1.4 interface to work with Nvidia’s 3DTV Play software, either because of some strange and unknown issue, or because the specific display is not yet available in the list of officially supported products, then this tutorial from the user bgnome over at the MTBS forums might help you. It is quite easy to be used as it is based on Brad Gearon’s EDID Override Inf file, so you may want to try it before giving up on playing games in stereo 3D mode from your PC on an HDMI 1.4-capable 3D monitor or 3D TV set. Also if you do try it, feel free to share your comments and success rate below…

    Bloody, Can you tell whether these methods can be used on the upcoming LG and Samsung monitors which you say will NOT SUPPORT 3dtv Play.

    It may work with them as well, this is an official workaround kind of solution, so there are no guarantees whatsoever that it will work with anything… ;)

    all those monitors have announnced hdmi 1.4 connectivity for better or for worse. although they lack direct support for 3D Vision, hdmi 1.4 makes the 720P60 and 1080P24 frame packing modes mandatory for 3d viewing. therefore if you can get 3DTV play to initialize with the EDID, override or not, you should be able to view 3d in those modes at least.

    The same trick can be used to enable 3Dvision on any DLP 3DTV or 3D projector without a 3Dvision kit, in fact that’s why the emulator was created, it was posted in the forums here about a month ago:


    We have a lot to thank Alexpk for, he also patched “ldecod” to create the first SSIF / MVC decoder able to convert 3DBlurays to SBS video files, long before any commercial players or rippers were available, the guy’s a genius!

    This hack seems to work great. I have 2 emitters so I didn’t bother with the emulator. But the driver makes my non-3DTV appear as a 3DTV to the 270.61 drivers. I can enable 3D and I get an over under picture on my screen. I just need to pony up for a 3DTV now.

    Not a good idea with a 4KTV you get stuck at 1940×1080.. took a while to get back to where I could see the whole desktop. We need an inf file that has the higher resolutions too.
