Thanks for your contribution!
Your latest sandy platform Z8 supports 3D playback together with HD audio streaming.
Let's simplify things at the beginning:
Update your Intel drivers first:http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/graphics
Disconnect your HDMI from your AVR and connect it directly to your PJ.
Don't forget to setup your PJ to 3D mode.
Make sure PDVD on 3D mode.
Thanks for the welcome!
You are welcome
Hoping we can figure this out and I can help contribute to the great info in this thread.
Because I am doing the build for a friend, the machine is at his house. However I will try and do what you suggested when I am there next (probably sometime during the week).
I am just trying to do my reasearch at the moment to figure out if I need a graphics card (like nvidia gts450 or something) or if the Intel HD3000 graphics is ok to get 3D working.
So if you want me to try anything please tell me so I can give feedback.
I will connect the HTPC directly to the PJ (Optoma HD33) like you said and then do I have to set 3D to "Side by side
" or keep it "Off" ? I want the projector to autoamtically pick up 3D content and switch to 3D mode rather than me manually doing that - I believe that is part of HDMI 1.4 not? So then in that case HD3000 (which is HDMI 1.4) and the PJ (Optoma HD33) which is also HDMI 1.4 should auto-detect?
I will also update the Intel HD 3000 graphics drivers too.
Also - What settings for 3D do I choose in Cyberlink PowerDVD?
