That clears things up nicely.
So based on that, is it crazy to think that a 3d PS3 video stream could be converted to 120hz frame sequential output via stereoscopic players "live view" ?
My crazy idea:
PS3 will only output 3d via hdmi, which is hdcp protected. It will also only switch to 3d mode if it sees the correct 3d EDID info coming from the display. It is my understanding (though this could be wrong) that as long as the EDID info contains the correct 3d format flags it will still work even if its not hdmi 1.4
Following this post here: http://dme.ghost2.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=17726
An HD Fury 2 or 3 can have its EDID info updated to support 3d formats. The post linked even states that it was tested as working with 720p60 PS3 3d output.
The whole idea of an HD Fury is to convert hdmi into vga / component. So if it can indeed trick the PS3 into outputting 3d to the hdfury, I would have component 720p60 framepacked 3d on the other end, HDCP free. Thats all in theory.
If then that component was hooked up to an Avermedia mtvhddvrr capture card (it captures up to 1080i HD via component) I was hopeful I could view the live video stream via stereoscopic player (it has a "live stream" option).
Now in fantasy land if everything up to that point actually works (insert laughing here), I do not know if Stereoscopic player could work with a framepacked stream. If it does I would convert it to 120hz frame sequential just like I do with all my video files, and send it to my 120hz projector.
The whole idea is to use my HTPC and for half the cost of Optoma's new 3d-xl box (around $250 or so)..... Play 3d games from my PS3 on my projector !
Why does this have to be so hard lol
I'm not trying to record anything, just play it live.... at this point I'm not even remotely worried about controller lag and such.... just trying to move the video stream down the path.....
/End crazy idea
Any thoughts ?
