Is Nvidia's 3D Vision required to play Blu Ray 3D discs in 3D using PowerDVD10 MarkII? If so, that increases the cost of PowerDVD by $179, the cost of the 3D vision emitter.

Hello,

NVIDIA 3D Vision is not the only option required for watching 3D content.

The cheapest would be to just use a regular monitor and a pair of anaglyph (red/cyan) 3D glasses. However, the 3D quality will not as good as it could be.

If you want better quality, you need to purchase a 3D ready HDTV, or NVIDIA 3D Vision and a monitor that is compatible with it.

Check the following for more detailed information:

Under "3D Zone" it says
"What You Need to Get 3D at home?
To enjoy **BLU RAY 3D** and 3D movies or videos, consumers must upgrade their PC or their home theater system. There are several components that are needed: "

Scrolling down to "3D ready HDTV" it shows
display = "supported 3D ready TVs"
graphics card support = nvidia 8 series and 9 series

I'm using a Sony KDL-55HX800 which is a 3D ready HDTV and a nvidia 9800 GT along with the Sony shutter glasses. This combo is advertized to work specifically for Blu Ray 3D playback, it doesn't. I meeting all the other lesser requirements such as win 7, RAM, CPU.

The advisor is meaningless because I fail only the 'display' test yet I can play BRD 3D in full quailty 3D if and only if I use a nvidia gtx580 graphics card. So much for the BRD advisor, it doesn't work.
According to Cyberlink support, I don't need either Nvidia 3D vision nor Nvidia 3DTV Play to play BRD 3D in 3D mode assuming I meet all requirements listed under 'requirements' and 'hardware support' as long as I have a " •HDMI 1.4 enabled 3DTV ". This is in direct contradiction to the Michaels's post "Things you need to know for BD 3D playback in PDVD 10 ULTRA Mark II". where he lists meeting Nvidia's 3D vision requirements as a PDVD10 MarkII requirement. I'm tired of these contradictions, and just want Cyberlink to either resolve the contradictions, or admit their site has wrong information.

Hello,
the 3D Vision requirements only refer to the users who wants to use 3D Vision.

If you have a system that is HDMI 1.4 compatible (VGA and Display).

on the bottom of this posting:

you will find links to more infomration if your Card is HDMI 1.4 compatible
