I have a 46" Sony KDL-46HX800 3D-HDTV running off of an evga GTX 460 via HDMI v1.3. I also have Arcsoft Total Media Theatre Platinum with the Slim3D plug-in. My computer also has a blu-ray player.
Currently I am able to watch blu-rays in 1080p on my tv. Seeing how my tv is 3d capable I'd like to watch 3d blu-rays on my tv using the tv's native 3d goggles and 3d transmitter.
From what I've seen online for 3d blu-rays to be played on a tv you need:
Computer with 3D capable/HDCP compatible graphics card
3D Blu-ray software
NVidia 3D Vision
TV compatible with NVidia 3D Vision
HDMI 1.4 everything
HDMI 1.4 is a problem because the 1.3 cable is already running through the wall. Ive seen that with a normal 3d blu-ray player you dont need hdmi 1.4 though.
I also believe my tv is not NVIDIA 3D Vision ready (as most arn't)
Is there any other way for me to get 3d on my tv? It seems like I have all of the necessary hardware IF I was using a stand-alone blu-ray player with a 3d tv... I dont see why my computer should be any different. If there are limitations they would seem to be software not hardware.
Will any of the new HDMI 1.4 features require a new cable?
The HDMI Ethernet Channel feature will require a new cable that supports this functionality, either a Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet or a High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet, depending on the maximum resolution to be supported. All of the other new HDMI 1.4 features will be compatible with the existing categories of cables.
Nowhere on the NVIDIA 3DTV Play site does it say that the cable has to be 1.4. Only that the ports do.
