This is exactly what I do, except I use Arcsoft TMT 5. I just pop a 3D bluray movie disc in and Arcsoft TMT 5 automatically switches my TV into 24Hz, 1080P 3D mode. The picture looks bright, vibrant and at full resolution on my D8000 Samsung LCD. I use the 3D glasses that came with my Samsung.
However, before I could play 3D movies in TMT 5, I had to run the Nvidia 3D TV wizard first to tell it to use 1080p, 24Hz as my default 3D resolution. I also have AnyDVD-HD running in the background to remove advertisements/trailers/BDlive.
EDIT: I just installed PowerDVD 12. It seem to run very nicely on my HTPC. In fact, it runs super quick on my HTPC; faster than Arcsoft TMT 5 when starting 3D or 2D bluray movies.
My HTPC is a 6 year old Q6600 quad core Intel based HTPC (with Nvidia 545GT + Creative Labs XiFi).

1) Download latest nVidia drivers and install.
2) Go to start menu> nVidia folder> and run 3d setup. This should not require nVidias 3D emitter so make sure you choose the setting which is applicable.
3) Set PowerDvd to automatically play 3D movies in 3D.
4) When playing 3D, go to nVidia control panel in task bar and make sure resolution is set to 3D, 24hz, 1920p.
5) If the picture displays similar to the blurry 3D picture of your stand alone player, it should be working.
Your glasses need to sync with your TV and have nothing to do with the HTPC.
