I am playing 1080p and 720p SBS 3D MKV files on my 3D HTPC and see ghosting effects in some players, not others. Need advice.
AMD 4850e Dual Core CPU
4Gb 1033Mhz RAM
1Tb SATA 3gbps HD
GA-MA78GM-S2HP Gigabyte motherboard
Audio from Optical cable to Pioneer vsx-1020-k HDMI 1.4a compat.
HDMI 1.3 cable to HDMI splitter, to Acer (was having no video through Pioneer and got frustrated)
Acer H5360 Projector ceiling mount
Optoma 3D shutter DLP link shutter glasses (aka no emitter)
Player 1 - sView 2009 Player, settings: Shutter Glasses mode
, SBS, L/R as is, 16:9 aspect
Result 1 - Perfect 3D, no ghosting, BUT stuttering
and what appeared to be left/right sync shift. Almost like the projector got confused as it lost frames on whether it should be Left first or right first, going back and forth. All elements in frame near and far appear crisp and 'focused' SOOO CLOSE!
Player 2 - Power DVD 11, settings, 3D on, DLP Ready TV mode
(is there another I missed?), tried left first and right first, tried all variations of HW accel on/off, etc
Results 2 - 3D effect with major ghosting.
Only nearest object in the frame has a 3D effect, all background elements are ghosted and washed out. Interestingly I chose interlaced I think (it was late last night) and that somewhat appeared to fix it. Some stuttering.
Player 3 - Stereoscopic player, DLP Ready TV(another mode I should try?), tried left first and right first
Results 3 - 3D effect with major ghosting.
Only nearest object in the frame has a 3D effect, all background elements are ghosted and washed out. Some stuttering.
One key difference is the 'shutter glasses' mode in sView 2009 vs. DLP Ready in PDVD 11 (Chkrbox?) The frame loss and stuttering may be causing the L/R sync freakout which could be underpowered CPU/lack of GPU accel or something else??? Can someone guide me on the best setup to watch 3D BR MKVs flawlessly(as close as possible) while taking advantage of the GPU capabilities of the GT240? MANY thanks in advance for your shared wisdom.
Do I need a CPU upgrade? That seems irrelevant to the ghosting I see in PDVD11 and SP from what I can tell. I will update this tonight if I see anything new or fix my observations. Please help.
