3D with NVIDIA GeForce 9400 Chipset & Panasonic TX-P65VT50

I'm looking for some help because I can't get the 3D working on my HDTV.
This is what I'm using:
  • - HTPC with GA-E7AUM-DS2H motherboard and integrated NVIDIA GeForce 9400 Chipset (
  • - Panasonic TX-P65VT50 with Active Shutter Progressive 3D (
  • - HDMI cable from HTPC to Panasonic directly (no A/V receiver in between, yet)
  • - Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1
  • - Arcsoft Total MediaTheatre, with following settings:
  • -- 3D > General Settings > "Always play Blue-ray 3D movie in 3D mode" option is checked
  • -- 3D > General Settings > "Always play movies and video files in 3D mode" option is unchecked

  • -- 3D > Viewing Environment > Select Your Display Configuration > NVIDIA 3D Vision Ready Display" selected

  • - NVIDIA 3DTV Play Activation Utility 266.7 (
  • - Avatar 3D (46.6 GB ISO file) and The Nutcracker 3D (37.5 GB ISO file) mounted with Elaborate Bytes Virtual CloneDrive

    I do see the movie, TMT shows 3D icon, but movie looks like a regular 2D video.
    Standard Panasonic shutter glasses are registered and recognised by the TV.
    I can use simulated 3D but that is not what I'm looking for.

    Personally, I was suspecting the video chipset not to be recent enough but I have found confirmation that 9400 should be able to do the job.
    Would appreciate feed-back. Anybody any idea what is wrong with the above set up?

    Looks like I disabled the email reply function.
    Hope this works better now, cause I still didn't find a solution.

    Found it!!!
    My card was not recent enough.
    Find in this link all the comptable cards:
    Note that this list is not up to date but can still be used because it shows the cards that are just compatible. Anything above will obviously also work.
    I bought a GT 610 for 38 euro's and the 3D on my HDTV is amazing!!

    BTW: I felt that these links are more then interesting to read:
