Currently, I have an ASUS M3A78-EM with about 4 gigs of RAM and a ECS NGT520C-1GQK-F GeForce GT 520 I went with the secondary GeForce card, because the on board ATI controller just was not cutting it. My TV is an LG 55LM6400 The TV allows me to select the 3D viewing option for different content types.

I have TotalMedia Theater 5 and PowerDVD 12. I can playback 3D Blu-Ray content without any issues, but once I try to load up a 3D Full SBS MKV, all hell breaks loose wink.gif I am looking to upgrade my HTPC, but want to know what other people have had success with. I don;t need anything "top of the line", but enough to play this content.

Another question I have, is in PowerDVD, when Full SBS playback "works" i notice my display looks correct, but in TM5 the content is very narrow. Meaning, the top and bottom black bars are huge compared to the actual video. It might have something to do with TM5 not setting the 3D content correctly. Also, TM5 crashed after about 3 minutes. I tired viewing the content using the COREAvc codec and windows media player, as well. Again, the picture was narrow, but it worked pretty well. Like a said my TV allows me to select the 3D option for SBS, so in Windows Media player the 3D looks fine, but extremely narrow.

I appreciate any help form this community.

I did an update to PowerDVD and so far things are working pretty well with my current setup. I'll keep you all updated, but in the mean time if anyone has any comments, please let me know.
