Anyone who has any AMD card with his/her own experience results?
Well, I can now report on both...
I added an HD 5450 in a second slot in my HTPC (in addition to a gt430) in order to get 3d through an Optoma GT720 projector without the 3d Vision emitter.
To my surprise, the two cards went along nicely. Win 7-64, latest drivers on both (did not install the amd hdmi sound), Samsung 720p 3d to HDMI on the Nvidia card, the Optoma to HDMI on the AMD card; display management through Windows.
However, when I tried to play a BR3D disk, experienced a lot of erratic behavior - PDVD (latest build) refusing to play at all, with messages of incompatible driver, or playing only DVD's and not BRD's; tried different things - installing IZ3D, installing TMT5 trial, changing primary displays, installing AnyDVD, eventually uninstalling iz3d - no luck: crashes, errors, hang-ups. Eventually, both PDVD and TMT started consistently crashing without an error message on attempt to play any disk format.
Finally, I disabled the gt430 in Device Manager, and - miracle - PDVD worked flawlessly on the projector, showing gorgious, smooth 3d 120Hz frame-flipped through DLP-link (ironically, the PDVD 3d output setting is "Nvidia 3d vision"). TMT5 worked, too (I do not remember setting the output format). Again, no IZ3d installed. No crosstalk, no grainy checkerboard, nice 3d effect (projecting 30" diagonally on a whitish wall). Had to swap views a few times, the easiest way was through PDVD's menu.
I activated the gt 430, and tested again. IIRC (this was late into the night), PDVD worked initially once (yay!), but then started consistently throwing an 0116 error, "incompatible driver". TMT5 played with the wrong resolution/size, or froze - I do not quite remember.
But still - working full-res dlp 3d!
Planning to contact PDVD support, and to look into using hardware profiles, if there is still such a thing in Win7, in order to switch between cards.
Did not try the hdmi1.4 3d on the tv while both cards are active.
