There are no deffinite answers, only confusion... with incompatible OS's, players, 3d drivers, hdmi1.4a drivers and 3dtv models/EDID's.
The answer to the second question says 3dTV Play is required (note: this is different from nvidia's 3d player). However, per its webpage, 3dTV Play is available only on 3d Vision PC's (equiped with 3d vision kit). So, it seems, no vision kit, no 1.4a output.
Cyberlink only says a gf 400 series card is required, not a combination of a card with software/hardware allowing 1.4a output. So, which one is it?
After updating Powerdvd to the latest build (23??, providing "support for 3d vision in Vista"), I had 1.4a output initially showing up in the 3d settings, and then disappearing when I tried to play a 3d bd. Powerdvd would output only anaglyph; checkerboard was an option, but did not work (worked before with AMD 4650). I lost regular bluray playback.
Cyberlink's bd&3d advisor passed all checks, except "3d Display". So, the pn50c490 is not supported by powerdvd, or by nvidia, or by both; or 1.4a is not working at all, due to 3d vision not being set up, due to 3dtv play not working without a 3d vision usb driver/emitter, and this shows up as unsupported display.
(Btw, initially it confused the video driver with Live Mesh Beta's remote desktop, and failed; had to uninstall Mesh for the advisor to see the GT430)
I am confused and tired (and short on time; so, no url's supporting some of the statemens above). There are so many unknows that make it difficult to do controlled trials. I was hoping for people here to narrow the number of options down. But they say "it just works", no details.
Next steps should be overriding the EDID, in the hope of having the tv supported, and installing win7. And stop ranting.
Edit: and run the somewhat sophisticated instructions on the Powerdvd forum, this may be the key:http://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/13610.page
