3DTV is basically a "connector" software that checks if you have a compliant 1.4 HDMI TV and if so, it will enable the 3D options for your Nvidia-based 3D card without having to have the Nvision 3D dongle hooked up. If you are missing either of these you will not get 3D through any NVIDIA-based card (not that I am aware of anyways.)
If you don't have either I'd skip the dongle and get 3DPLAY TV and call it a day. They will email you a download link and it will integrate into your existing Nvidia drivers every time you update them.
The 3D Vision kit comes with a stereoscopic player that will allow you to play blu-rays, MKV files, look at 3D images, etc. and it also comes with a number of other helpful utilities. I am not sure if 3DPLAY TV comes with this or not since I already had them installed but I would imagine that they do. You would still need a dongle or 3DPlay in order to put the video card into 3D mode regardless if you use the player software or not.
I had absolutely NOTHING but problems from the software you are trying to use and PowerDVD to some extent. The Nvidia player does not allow you to select a language in MKV files and will default to whatever it was encoded with on the primary track. PowerDVD and the HT program you are using will allow you to select the track but they constantly crashed my laptop or did weird things once 3D was enabled.
