Any SBS video, etc. play as side-by-side images, and I can manually switch my monitor to play them, but I have other software for that. Of course, I can always use PowerDVD, but was hoping to have more features like HDR and MAD-VR built-in. Any suggestions?
MC Options -> Video
Video Mode: Set Red October HQ
Enable 3D Blu-ray and MKV 3D decoding
devices -> <your device>
Set device type appropriately
properties -> 3D format: auto (for HDMI frame-packed, select any other modes as appropriate)
rendering -> stereo 3d
enable stereo 3d playback
set madVR to enable and disable 2d/3d mode as appropriate
(only relevant for HDMI frame-packed output)
Also, I assume you either have an AMD card or you're on nvidia 425.31 drivers or older since you had 3d working in pdvd? If not, there are workarounds but they are not as streamlined in the 3d execution. Hope that helps.
I should also note that i am not currently using my htpc/jriver for 3d, just that I had it working when I installed half a year ago or so. I use a Zidoo Z9s for 3d and 1080p 2d movies. I am short a PC right now, so I only move the htpc/jriver combo to the theater room for the odd 4k/hdr movie.
