    3D with 42PFL7656K/02 and HTPC (Nvidia GT 430) possible?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a little bit confused since I bought my 42PFL7656K/02 regarding watching 3D Blurays.
    I only have a HTPC and also bought a sony bluray drive.
    I started with my onboard ATI HD3200 which seemed to be too weak and I also
    struggled with PDVD9/10/11 not recognizing my 3D TV.

    So I tried to inform myself and read something about HDMI 1.4, so I bought a
    ATI HD 6450 which seemed to have HDMI 1.4 -> but no luck. PDVD9 played the
    3D content as if it was row-interleaved but the TV doesn't recognized it as 3D content
    and displayed it in normal 2D (which looked not that good) and switching to SBS or top-bottom
    made it even worse

    So here I read some post where it the problem seemed to be the graphic card and
    one time the Nvidia GT 520 was a successful choice.

    Now I just wanted to ask if the GT520 (or the performance stronger GT430) is a good choice
    with my 42PFL7656?
    And what Video player should I use? Is PDVD11 also known to work with this TV? (Which option should I use
    in the 3D settings?)

    Any hint is welcome!

    Greetings from Austria,
    Johannes

    I used to have a 430 with my 9705, and 3D was easy to get, as long as I did & pass the 3D test the driver had (else 3D could not be enabled). But I switched back to an ATI card, which is fanless (6450 I think) - and I haven't tested 3D with that...

    Just bought a new hdmi 1.4 cable.
    Activating 3D in PDVD11 is not really working -> "Cannot activate stereoscopic view. Please change 3d device."

    I currently found the following list at nvidia support page:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/3dtv-pl...uirements.html

    There is a philips 42PFL7606K stated as supported. Is this the same model/type as 42PFL7656K?
    (I will also write to Nvidia support forums for that.)

    I'm a little bit frustrated

    Greetings, Jo

    Hi,

    yeah - it's the same model (for different shops). Should be working...

    Thanks for this really quick reply.
    Sky is getting sunnier again
    I will double check with nvidia forums and report here.
