My 3d HTPC Adventure
 
So I upgraded my gaming pc to make it 3d ready. Been playing the few games I owned and its been fun and all. But I wanted some real 3d stuff. So it began.

My first purchase was a 4x bluray drive, and to say my dvd writer was sitting idle and gathering dust, but I need a bd drive, so that.
Then went and bought couple of software, stereoscopic player from 3dtv.at and Powerdvd 10 Ultra 3d Mark 2
Now for the content, I scourged the net and found lot of 3d content at biohemmet.se. Paying a few bucks got me access to their ftp with tons of stuff.
And then the movies, bought Grand Canyon Imax 3d, and Monster vs Aliens 3d from Ebay. Paid a pretty penny to get them, but was worth it.
Now I want to get 3d channels from Directv, but thats not straight forward. Directv only sends 3d signals to a handful on 3d tvs in their list. Connect anything else and it wont budge.
So what I am doing is to get a edid spoofer(gefen HDMI Detective), getting edid for a tv in their list. For this I have to go to Bestbuy and hope one of the reps there will let me connect my device to one of the tvs on display there. Highly unlikely, especially since I am not American or white(lol)
then connect it to a Avertv HD DVR Capture card and hope it carries the signal to my pc, when I will then use stereoscopic player to play the live video in checkerboard format.

Appears legit, but it has some NSFW content on the main page...

it definitely has nsfw content, like 3-4 clips. But the rest of the stuff is legal and innocuous!!!

Tornadog, dont you need a 1080p display for side by side 3d? I see that you have a Panasonic Viera 50" 720P Plasma.

I think Directv is well aware of this and will provide a workaround soon(?)
Why dont you go to the same store where you bought your Mits? They sure will let you grab some other tv EDID.

I'm sure some rep somewhere will let you suck some 3DTV DNA. :)
