I use a High Power screen, basically i just used a pair of Dolby 3d glasses as filters. they are made of glass, so heat isn't an issue. (with a polarized setup, you usually have to set them a bit far from the lens or they'll melt overtime, cause they're made of plastic)
And yes, this was on an HTPC, using a 4870 video card via IZ3d drivers (they have dual projection support)
Worked really well in lots of games. And as far as video material goes, there isn't that much out there, though i do have a few hours of footage. (no movies though)
The downside with doing it the "cheap way" like i did, is you have no color correction box, and the gamut is a bit different for each eye.
The consequence of not using color correction is, on really bright primary and secondary colors you'll see those colors brighter on one side, and dimmer on the other.
This is only on really bright colors, so on most movies and games you'll rarely see this come up, but you will every now and then.
It's not a deal breaker, but it's definitely a flaw we could do with out.
Of course if you buy everything from Infitec you shouldn't have this issue, but the price is really high if you go this route.
Last i checked it was about 2,000 for the filters (which really, is exactly the same as the glasses only a bit different shape) and about 2,000 for the correction box, not to mention Infitec branded glasses are much more expensive than the Dolby 3d ones, and from what i hear, not as good as the dolby 3d glasses.
(supposedly the dolby 3d glasses use different wave lengths that result in better color fidelity)
