Here is a detailed description of what you need to do on PC depending on your hardware and selected mode: - "vendor specific stereoscopic" mode: - NVIDIA: - you must install NVIDIA 3dTVPlay (14 day free trial, after that you have to pay for it), navigate to NVIDIA control panel and enable 3d. You can do this only when: 1) your drivers are 280.xx or never, 2) you have only one 3d tv connected to your computer. If you have both a 3d tv and a monitor connected the 3d cannot be turned on. If you have more than one graphics card and your SLI is turned OFF, the 3d tv can be connected only to the first of them - otherwise it won't work. Again, if you have a monitor connected to the other card it won't work. - 3D works on all 8600 and up NVIDIA cards, - your 3d tv must be listed on the NVIDIA website - it won't work on other models, - ATI: - your drivers must be 11.3 or never, - it works with any 3d tv, - the tv can be connected in any way you like it but it must be a HDMI or DVI-2-HDMI connection, - you can connect other monitors to your machine, - if you have two graphics cards you have to disable the crossfire - the 3D won't work with that, - "framepacked stereo " mode: - choose the native tv resolution (usually 1920x1080), - press the 3D button on your remote control and select the "top-bottom frame packed mode" (the name may vary depending on your tv model), - play using the pad or software cursor - hardware mouse cursor will not work, - works with any 3D tv, with any additional monitors connected whatever you like, SLI or no SLI, crossfire or no crossfire.
