Looks like the 3D HTPC issues are getting close to being resolved. It's actually a little sooner than I was afraid it might be. Hopefully, next week will involve a lot of installation and testing.
TMT 5 works with 3D Blu-ray iso's, right? Have you tried launching it from within Windows 7 Media Center? Their web site seems to indicate it should work that way. I use My Movies as the GUI for the Blu-ray collection, but I still have the black level bug to sort out (again).
Hopefully, all I'll need soon is for AVS to ship my RS40.
This setup was crashing Powerdvd 10 (latest version from a few weeks ago), it was bent about HD audio streaming to the receiver, it worked fine without the Pioneer hooked up.
I'm impressed with TMT5, it looks much nicer than TMT3 and bit more modern than PowerDVD10. Best of all, it just worked with the out of the box settings. I didn't have to tell it what 3D display I was using, nor fight with it to keep the HD audio settings like I sometimes have to do with PDVD10 + the Nvidia GT430.
by all accounts reading on ATI's site and the HTPC forum, the 5450 should not be able to output 3D BD frame packed video, but it most certainly does. I will check to see how TMT5 interfaces with MCE7 tonight and let you know.
I am going to do some A/B tonight between the Samsung 7900 and the ATI / HTPC setup. My bluray burner + a pile of 50GB dual layer disks arrived today, so I have to set that up as well.
PS. I hope Octava have gotten their stuff together, I wanted to throw their 5x2 1.3 from about 2 years ago in a river. I had such sync issues, I finally decommissioned after a while.
