I should've put the link in the original post. It's a great place to start.

I just use the NVIDIA 3DTV Play. It works great. Give it a test run too.

I've never tried the Iz3d software except for anaglyph.

Thanks guys. Good thing that 3DplayTV is free for 2 weeks. Might give that a go.

I thought with 3D play TV, it uses the glasses with the TV and not Nvidia's 3D version.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/3dtv-play-overview.html

NVIDIA 3DTV Play software at a glance:

Get compatibility with HDMI 1.4 3D TVs and compatible TV manufacturer's 3D glasses system, including Panasonic® VIERA® Full HD 3D plasma TVs. For a current list of supported 3D TVs and receivers, click here.
Convert your standard PC games into 3D so you can play over 500 PC games in stunning 3D environments.
Experience crisp, stunning Blu-ray™ 3D movies in full 1080p HD playback.* Your GeForce® GPU accelerates the video decoding to provide seamless 3D quality.
Stream 3D videos from 3DVisionLive.com and enjoy sports, movies, concerts and more in amazing, high-definition, full-resolution 3D**.
Share your 3D photo collection online or browse through thousands of 3D pictures from other users on 3DVisionlive.com**.
Browse 3D photographs on your 3D TV or view them in a slideshow with the included 3D photo viewing software.


3DTV Play software requires a compatible GeForce GPU, Microsoft® Windows® 7, and a compatible 3D TV. Please view the 3DTV Play system requirements for more details where you can also check the list of supported 3D TVs.

Mine is passive too and it wasn't on nvidia's list when I first got it, but it worked fine. A week or 2 after i started using 3d play I saw my tv had made it to the list. Give it a whirl and let us know.

How do you find the 3D-Play. I have been thinking of giving it a go.

First follow the link to download the free trial utility, I believe it just unlocks the feature in the drivers for the length of the free trial.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/3dtv-play-14day-trial.html

Go to "Setup Stereoscopic 3d" in the NV control panel and set it up.

Then you can activate it in games by going to one of the supported resolutions in the game.

Downside is that it only supports games in 3d at either 720p (60hz) or 1080p cinema mode which is also called 24p, 24p mode (on my LG) plays 3d movies with a better motion feel IMO than you get at Imax, but it is unplayable in games as the fps is just too low. A rock solid 60fps at 720p is still great with enough AA. Give it a try and let us know what u think.
