New to 3D please help


Standard Member
Ok so I am new to the 3d tv world.

Is there a way to play 3d content from my pc to my tv?

What I have:

Samsung D490 tv
Samsung 3050 active glasses
Pc with nvidia GeForce GTX 260 card
Dvi to hdmi adapter from pc to tv?

I bought a 3d movie from sky box office the other day and I couldn't watch that in 3d even if I turn on 3d on the tv it converts the 2d image to 3d but i want to watch native 3d content and the option for side by side is grey and not selectable?

Please help, I really don't understand what I am doing wrong.

Try asking one of the lads on the pc gaming thread im in the process of changing my ps3/360 for a pc and have read a bit about driver compatablity issues with nvidia graphics cards not playing certain types of files on certain tv's and pj's without forcing some settings.
