So I wanted to just use a laptop for my htpc. I had a inspiron n5010, I couldn't get it to play 3d blu rays. I thought it may be an hdmi 1.4 issue so I bought a brand new laptop that dell said had hdmi 1.4, the inspiron n5040. I have a mitsubish 73640 DLP tv, with dlp-link glasses. I've used both powerdvd 12 and totalmedia theatre 5. I set the source on automatic, and the output to 3d dlp (checkerboard). I bypassed my denon 1712 in case that was an issue and have a 1.4 hi speed hdmi cable directly to the tv. Both software will play the movie, and it does sorta seem to have 3d turned on. It get a off-set double image. However no 3d from the glasses. I tried setting the tv automatically detect - the glasses just kinda blink. I set the tv to automatic, it basically overlays a light/dark checkerboard pattern over everything but does not show me 3d. I can play 3ds from youtube satellite ok - just not 3d blu rays. Can anyone give me any tips on what I might be doing wrong? Video card is intel HD 2000, i3 processor.
