I have an HTPC (Intel Core i5-6500 CPU and HD Graphics 530) with PowerDVD 16 connected to a Sony VPL-HW40ES HD Projector and Sony PS3 IR 3D glasses. (FWIW details on my HTPC on in an older thread
or MVC MKV files played by PowerDVD 16 on the HTPC feel like they're playing at half-rate per eye
-- 12 Hz per eye -- giving a sense of flicker and image shearing during
motion or horizontal pans
. When a scene is cut I can sense the wipe from one eye to the other as the scene transitions in a two-frame increment. During a scene like the animated Marvel logo in Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm seeing flickers of black
as the large bold graphic moves and sweeps around.
With a cheap blu-ray player connected to the projector, 3D is great. 3D also works fine through my PS4. But the HTPC is not doing something right
; it's not feeding or triggering some sort of temporal upsampling to give faster per-eye refreshes to make the 3D look smooth.
I tried a forum search, which was futile since the forum search won't search for "3D".
I assume this is a long-known problem. Are there any solutions?
