There could be an increase in ghosting if there is a synchronization issue of some kind. However, I tend to agree with you. After all, its the projector that syncs the ir-signal for the shutters with the incoming frames from the hdmi source....not the computer. Maybe the frame rate is slightly inconsistent coming from the card? Unlikely, but I would like to rule it out.
For whatever reason I do seem to be experiencing more ghosting than some posters with the same content. For example, the opening titles of The Guardians owl movie ghosts for the floating 3d titles regardless of warm up time. Everyone who has looked at this on my PJ can see it. At least one poster here doesn't see this....and for me it is hardly subtle. Everyone should see it. I also see flicker...and others apparently are not seeing this.
I also get picture breakup into blocks with avatar 3d randomly...so there is an issue there.
It sounds like your PJ has about the same amount of ghosting as mine does. Have you tried Despicable Me yet? The white backgrounds seem to be really ghost-prone. The 3D titles in the owl movie ghosted much less after I switched to the newer AMD card, and the 3D effect was of course more pronounced. Although there is still ghosting, the feather that pops out when the owl dives down in the front of the movie title seems to project much closer to me than with the Nvidia card. My projector was thoroughly warmed up for all testing. I guess I could put the 450 back in and try out the new drivers just to be sure.
I've tried different HDMI cables and have even bought an HDMI 1.4 receiver in the process of chasing down these ghosts.
I recently borrowed a friend's PS3 but have not played a 3D movie with it yet. The killzone3 demo (720p i think) ghosted like crazy and looked like garbage, though.
Interesting that you mention the breaking up into blocks during difficult scenes. I occasionally get that too! I thought that my 6850 card, i5 2500 and 2000Mhz memory would have enough horsepower to render 3D flawlessly. Maybe it's an issue with the software player (TMT5) or drivers.
My latest moment of 3D amazement was the dark title screen for Tangled. I think overall, 3D pop-out effect on RS40 just seems to work better with light colors on dark backgrounds. Movies like Avatar that have "shallow" 3D depth overall tend to be good.
