For reference on my previous system (to support HiDef), see:
After a long hiatus while enjoying HiDef, I now see that 3D is starting to take off.
So, time to rebuild/retrofit the HT for 3D
Put 3D on hold to update other sections as I think they need more work and I'm not so sure 3D is ready.

nvidia hack - enable 3DTV Play on any HDMI 1.4 Device for Free:
3DTV Play? - no checkerboard?
Stereoscopic [BD] player - http://3dtv.at/Index_en.aspx
free (max 5min), 39Euro full - DLP TV viewing format for checkerboard
Windows Media Player version 11.0.6002.18311
HDMI1.4 checkerboard for all! 3D Vision software fix here:
For gaming, get iZ3D and then Tridef (neither are renewable and the trials only last 3 weeks)
how much $ are these
- looks like Tridef is better for games than nVidia - also looks like Tridef has checkerboard?
For BR3D, either TMT5 or Spectroscopic player
Sony PS3 - firmware 3.60
Comcast DCX 3400 DVR
Can't get Auto 3D to work, yet (setup Native through menu after poweroff), however, I can manually set up the following:
897 XF3D SbS 1080i
898 ESN3D TnB 720p
G4 on Demand
Mits HC3000 projector - bedroom
Panasonic PT-AE 3000U projector - living room
Samsung LNT4661FX/XAA LCD 46"
Samsung Plasma 58C8000
allows checkerboard mode for 3D (thanks Frank) - windowed 3D and 60Hz sequential gaming
- current shipped firmware 2011/01/31_001035
- crosstalk test at https://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1291751
In order to enable all 7 3D format options (including checkerboard) on Samsung C, rename HDMI/DVI 1 as "DVI PC"
This will not work for Comcast ESN3D (my 898) TnB 720p
- have to use a different input?
