Problems using BenQ MH530 with Nvidia Stereoscopic 3D

I have a PC with a Geforce GTX 550 TI hooked up to a BenQ MH530 3D projector and PowerDVD 13 with a high speed HDMI cable. When I setup Stereoscopic 3D in the Nvidia Control Panel it tests fine. I have set the resolution set to 1080p 1920x1080 24HZ the same as the native resolution of the projector.

My problem for example, when I launch a .mkv SBS or OU movie using PowerDVD, I get a message in red saying "Current mode 1920x1080 @60Hz is not HDMI 3D compatable." Nvidia Control Panel is set correctly to HD 3D 1920x1080 @24Hz so I don't understand. I set PowerDVD to SIDE by SIDE or OVER UNDER in the PowerDVD 3D settings and I still don't get a 3D image just a side by side or over under.

I have the same setup with another computer using a Geforce GTX 550 TI and ACER H5380BD 3D 720p projector 1280x720 and everything works perfectly. PowerDVD auto-detects if the .mkv is SBS or OU, it works like a charm so this other projector is driving me nuts.

Any help would be appreciated.

When playing a SBS/OU 3D .MKV file you need to disable 3D in the PC and powerDVD, just send the SBS/OU image to the projector manualy setting the projector to 3D SBS/OU to play the file. Let the projector merge the images not the PC or PowerDVD.
