I have an LG smart TV that uses passive 3d technology and torrent 3d movies work great. Now I got a Ben Q w1070 DLP 3d projector and I need a separate player, of course, to play my torrents. well... I've tried the LG 3d smart TV upgrader, The LG BP620 3d Blu-ray player, and the Panasonic DMP-BDT230 3d Blu-ray player. The TV Smart Upgrader is not a disc player, only for media streaming, it works great for 2d movies but only shows a split screen for 3d torrents. The 2 Blu-ray players do exactly the same result for the torrents BUT they do show perfect 3d image when viewing 3d from an actual store bought 3d Blu-ray disc.


So... How do I get my downloaded 3d torrents to play properly on my DLP projector?

I would suggest using the 3D blu ray disc of the film you want to watch, it will work alot better

Well... thanks for actually replying. BUT... you obviously missed the point. I have downloaded movies, LOL. The purpose of that is to NOT pay money for discs. A plastic disc is a waste of money AND material. Streaming and downloading is the way of the future (actually, the way of the present)


Thanks for playing though.


Any other bright ideas? Please, someone who actually knows something about this stuff.

This forum frowns upon bootlegged movies. Furthermore, you ask about "Torrents", as if we have any idea what format the file is. If they are iso's, then just ask about iso's. If they are mkv's, might ask about those. But, as a rule, folks around these parts are not interested in helping you steal content.

You need to manually put your projector into SBS mode then it will take that splitscreen image being displayed and overlay the two images so that you can view them in 3D.


Shouldn't be too difficult to find in the menu on your projector.


Let us know how you go.

There is NO stealing going on! It's called SHARING. Sharing media content is perfectly legal. Bootlegging requires exchange of money. NO ONE is buying or selling this content. so... please get off your high horse.


As for me referring to the files as torrents, yes, my mistake on terminology, oops. most of the files are .AVS or .MKV format.

I looked for an SBS mode and did not find any such option. It's a BenQ w1070 with DLP technology if that helps with a suggestion.

Ummm, well, I'm not sure you've got all your facts straight there, but that's fine.


For Mkv, MPC-HC does all the 2D movies. Won't do 3D that I know of. I have no experience with Avs files. I use PowerDVD13 and the real disk, or an Iso of it for 3D, and MPC-HC for 2D.


Btw, there is a delete function for posts... As with most forum software.

Hey man, I don't own the projector but I did a quick google for the manual and maybe this can point you in the right direction.



1. Press the MENU/EXIT and go to the Display > 3D menu and press MODE/ENTER. Or you can

press the 3D Setting button on the remote control. The 3D page displays.


2. Highlight 3D Mode and press MODE/ENTER. The 3D Mode page displays.


3. Press / to highlight the 3D format that you need and press MODE/ENTER. The projector

automatically detects the format of the video when selecting Auto. If not, you need to base on the

3D format of the video to make an appropriate setting in the 3D Mode menu.



I'd imagine at step 3 you should be able to put in manually into SBS mode.

I have the W7000 and in the menu, it is possible to force it into 3D mode and force side by side. But, leaving it on auto and just allowing the player to send 3D content should work just fine. That's all I do with mine. Assuming the 1070/1080 are similar, I would think its the software or player you are using that is keeping your 3D from playing correctly. Not the projector.


If you've got a HTPC, just go get a demo copy of PowerDVD13 and at least get things working with that. It'll give you a month to try it out. I have to say, I actually like it. It's much better than previous releases I've used. If you're not happy with it, or have a better solution, choose some other player software you like and use that instead.

WOW ! Not one single person on this entire forum has an answer for this?!? This forum is lame.

Seeing as we haven't heard from you after offerring advice I can only assume you got it all working. So I guess the forums not that lame after-all eh?


Perhaps a "thanks for helping out" wouldn't hurt. Or are you a typical leecher of content as well as information...?

As an artist, I don't like piracy. As a liberal, I don't like the government's heavy-handedness trying to prevent it, and thus prevent legal copying as well.

There are a lot of short (and not so short) 3D videos on youtube which you can download in side-by-side format, and from other sources. Many of the IMAX 3D movies were produced using public money and are in the public domain. So don't assume he "stole" the movies (although he probably did). I have also downloaded a lot of movie torrents of old movies I already own because whoever is ripping and posting them gets much better results (video quality, file size) than I seem to be able to get on my own, despite many tries and much tinkering. I packed up most of my old DVD's and put them in storage, out of the way. (I live in a tiny apartment). So now if I wanna watch one of my old movies, I just go download it. And the movie studios and government may not agree, but if I have already paid $20 for a legal legitimate licensed copy of the 2D version of a movie, I don't think I should have to pay an additional $35 for the 3D version of it.


Now, that being said...


I just got a new Viewsonic PJD7820HD projector, which is supposed to be 3D ready at full 1080p. It uses DLP technology and I bought some cheap Sainsonic DLP-view 3D glasses. I upgraded the video card in my HTPC to a new nVidia GTX-650, downloaded the latest drivers and their 3D Vision player. I also have the 3Dtv stereoscopic player and Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 Ultimate. After several days of tinkering, I still cannot get any of my side-by-side 3D video files to play with the proper 3D effect. I have set the player software for side-by-side format and manually put the projector into side-by-side mode, but either end up with 2 separate side-by-side images, or a single image blurry with 2 offset images superimposed. Based on the symptoms, I suspect that my glasses are not syncing. I have 3 pairs. I don't think there is anything else in the room that should be interfering with the DLP-Link signal. The PJD7820HD is a new model, but of course it is built on the shoulders of previous models.


So... Is anyone using cheap Sainsonic DLP-Link glasses with a Viewsonic DLP 3D projector? Any troubleshooting tips?


Thanks!
