I've recently upgraded my projector to a Panasonic PT-7000 (called the PT AT5000E here in the UK) with the hope of playing 3D blu-rays from my HTPC.

I've used the setup for playing regular blu-ray for a long time with no problems but I can't seem to get it working with 3D blu rays.

My setup is a Core i5 processor and an AMD Radeon HD 6570 graphics card with the latest catalyst drivers. I usually run it through an Onkyo 616 AVR but for the purposes of testing have connected the PC directly to the projector.

For playback I've tried PowerDVD 12 and TotalMedia Theatre 5 with no success. As soon as I attempt to play 3D content the projector loses the signal.

I'm pretty AV and computer literate but this has got me stumpted and I'd be really grateful if anyone could help.

The only thing I can think of is that you might need to ensure that the PC is sending CE video timing and not PC timing. The projector probably doesn't recognize a 3D signal with PC timing as a valid 3D input and hence won't switch to 3D display mode.
