An Nvidia 3D Vision IR emitter is still required to enable Nvidia 3D Play on a PC that lacks a built-in emitter. (On the link below, see the NOTE on item 3 or download the User Guide.)

From what I can tell, you still need the Nvidia 3D Vision emitter to enable the 3D Play feature on your PC (just as I did years ago). (I have an opinion about this hardware requirement that I'll...

Nvidia 3D Vision (or, more properly, 3D Play) works just fine on my DLP projector (Optoma HD25-LV).

PowerDVD 16 Ultra software will probably serve your purposes better than Tridef. I gave up on...

Not to question your veracity in any way, but this news sounds too good to be true! Can you point me in the direction of more information? (Or to quote Doctor Evil: Throw me a bone here!) Thanks!

The catch here is that projectors use active 3D technology, unlike your current television, and the 3D shutter glasses will cut the brightness of the displayed image significantly. I strongly...

Glad to hear that you went with the RF glasses! As I mentioned earlier, I agree with you that they provide a visibly better 3D experience than DLP-Link glasses. I don't know of any alternatives to...

I don't own anything other than the Optoma HD25-LV so I can't answer your questions -- although I can make a very good guess: any projector that costs 3-4 times as much as mine will undoubtedly blow...

There are several Optoma DLP projectors in that price range. I am very happy with mine (HD25-LV), although I paid $1000 for it (two years ago).

DenM3, I would strongly encourage you to get RF glasses (and the required emitter) instead of DLP-Link glasses. The HD25-LV is one of the relatively few projectors on the market that can take...

It is true. And I'm not laughing.

PowerDVD Ultra 15, while hardly perfect, does a remarkable job with 2D to 3D conversion. I am not alone in this opinion.

Perhaps we can use this post as an...

The title I've most consistently heard to yield terrible cross-talk in 3D is DIAL M FOR MURDER. I also have DLP so this disc is a non-issue for me (as well as being a personal favorite).
