Scan Computers - not yet compatible with Nividia 3DTV Play. Driver issues.
So I have been hard at work on this one and there is nothing I can do to get this running without lag on Win7 or get 3DTV play operational. So will need to sit tight until I here back from Optoma this week. Will post up an update soon.
Does anyone have the HD33 up and running with Win7 (64bit) without lag and with 3DTV play working??
I do not have the projector (yet) but I've been reading about it a lot. This may or may not work to get the 3DTV Play working but worth a shot: I noticed in this Nvidia 3D forum a link to this blogger's site for instructions about using the 3DTV Play with displays that are not currently supported officially by Nvidia. The fix is basically using a custom .inf for the display to enable 3DTV Play.
Could you please test and report back if you got it working? I'm eager to know the result since I'm planning to use the projector mainly through PC as well and gaming with PC is a big part of it.
I think it would be also helpful to use this Nvidia support site to upload the projector's display info to Nvidia for them to add the support officially. Maybe they will add the support faster if many people upload it
Hi and thanks,
Am hot on the topic now, just swapping out the HD67N for the HD300x and will test the theory and report back shortly. I do have a direct line into both Nvidia and Optoma due to what we do however everyone is off till Monday/ Tuesday and we have a presentation on Monday whihc it needs to work for.
Will be surprised if it fixes the lag ! But you never know.
Give me 30mins and some match sticks as its now 0130 in the morning,
Well a quick post to say Nvidia 3DTV play test screen working well. MMmm 1080p 3D @ 24Hz.
Big thanks for the tip, the instructions were simple and very easy to follow and took all of about 5 mins including teh reboot and test. I now apparently have a denon
Tested - TMT 3 plat (Great apart from having no keyboard controls to skip)
FSX - Amazing
DiRT3 - Did not work in 1080p 24hz only allows you to select 25hz so when am awake tm will look through config files to see if I can manually change that
Stereoscopic player - Amazing
P.S. Lag still present? Any suggestions on that one?
Thanks for testing, good to know that it actually works!
Would you be able to test also 720p resolution and 120hz refresh rate with frame packed 3D material, effectively sending 60hz to both eyes? I'd think that using the desktop with 1080p/24hz is very sluggish, you should see a lot of lag with mouse movements etc and therefore in 3D gaming you should use 720p and in movies 1080p. HDMI 1.4a doesn't support 1080p/60hz for each eye in 3D through the cable because of the limited bandwidth so you need to use 720p resolution in desktop to get higher refresh rate to work.
Hi all need some help I need to find out how far back in meters the hd33 has to be back for 120" screen.
The reason I need help is because 1.I am about to take the plunge 2. I have no access to a pc as mine is in repair (dodgy mother board ) and apple ipod has no flash for the calculators
Thanks in advance
13.1" to 15.8" with 14.3 being optimal,according to projector centrals calc.
Thanks for your help do you know though what 14.3 is in meters as I'm in Finland and meters are how we roll
3.32 to 3.98 gives 254 cm diagonal
Excellent ! cheers for the help
Re the 2d to 3d conversion....I suppose you could simply plug in a blue player that has this function....and that should work ?????
Hd300x £999 at avpartsmaster (plus vat sorry was at work and didnt see the plus vat bit)
Taken from their site:

A basic distance chart from Optoma regarding the HD33. Hope this help people!
Lovely just what I was looking for thanks.
Some additional info that helps the desktop lag, it does not resolve some of the in game issues. Soon as you switch to 3D resolution the lag is re-introduced.
The HD300X has frame interpolation, colour and edge-enhance processing enabled by default, which will induce lag to the video signal.
Try turning the projector's display mode to “REFERENCE” - this should disable all the post-processing and reduce the lag to a minimum.
If you are running in 3D mode, you will need to disable “PureMotion,” “PureColor” and “PureDatail” manualy via the OSD to reduce the Lag. (They can be found in under “Image -> Advanced -> PureEngine”
Do not use LBX mode in 3D as it introduces crosstalk and soar eyes.
Will testing a number of games over the next few days so will come back soon with a full run down.
1080p 3D movies are great
3DTV Play Nvidia update due out in a couple of weeks which will add the HD300x to the certified list.
Beaten to it!
So I'll just repeat it again. For those out there waiting for the EDIE firmware upgrade for the latest N-Vidia 3DTV Play NVidia have confirm that a software upgrade will be ready in a couple of weeks.
This means that you will be able to see the projector in the list!
mine arrives tomorrow!
Can anyone who's owned a HD20 comment on the noise of the HD33? I love my HD20 but the noise it makes drives me mental so looking to switch for something a lot quieter.
You lucky lucky person I still have to wait 14 days for stock to arrive at the shop I'm buying from
It's seems to be a quieter. Although the noise a projector delivers is selective to some degree in my experience.
It depends where you are sat in relation to the projector, what Lamp mode you are running it in and whether you have the volume up on your surround sound system!
If you are interested you can pop over to our showroom and have a listen to both unit's and this will let you know for sure which is the quietest.
I have to say that I think its nice and quiet. In fact I had someone around yesterday and that was one one of their first comments. Considering its a chunky fella doing alot of work its not intrusive in anyway.
The only time it makes a noise is when its switching in and out of 3D for applications.
i got a very good deal from Anton at Progressive AV!
was the last one he had too...
btw, Projectorpoint are doing an extra free pair of glasses and a mount for 1359...
Mines about 1.2 meters above my head and with the sound muted on my amp and it's almost silent I even put my ear next to it to check the fan was working when I got it
In 3d mode it does hum a bit and I can hear it sitting down but it's not that loud I think it's because it outputs more lumens so the fan kicks up a gear
I have mine on normal lamp mode and I think its quite loud tbh louder than my old xbox and thats loud.
Quite impressed with it, although I do suffer a little rainbowing.... 3D is awsome! I no longer see it as a gimic!
Played Wipeout HD on ps3 and was amazed can really see the corner comming at you when going 200mph!
Just ordered my hd33 today with 2 pairs glasses and rf module (glasses and module not supplied with projector here in Finland) should be here tomorrow. Very excited all I need now to complete this day is to go buy an ice cream
I think that's a fair comment.
Anybody wanting to see the projector in action, simply give me a call. We've got it hooked up to an Onkyo TX-NR609 and Panasonic DMP-BDT310 3D blu-ray player. If your worried about stocking issues, please don't worry as stock is available together with eyewear.
Anybody have any best settings info for the hd33?
There are some settings on the avs forum for American version would this work okay for eu version?
