Ill be using it as a second monitor with my PC, for movies and such.

i have a 3D-Ready GFX card, and a 3D HDMI cable, but what software will ; need? does anyone know a media player that will play 3D content? and where can i find 3D content online?

Just curious, how much did you pay for the HDMI cable?

As far as I am aware there are currently no ways of playing 3D via your PC. You need a 3D blu ray player. You may be able to get one for your PC.

It depends on your graphics card, AMD and nVidia both have their own methods.

NVIDIA has:; http:;//www.nvidia.ca/object/3dtv-play-overview.html

For AMD they have HD3D drivers I believe. You'll have to do some research to find out if you need 3rd party software or what.

Not a bad price. At least you weren't tricked into buying a $50 one when you can get decent quality, gold plated HDMI cables for ~$6 if you know where to look.

I still say it's worth reading this page:; http:;//www.nvidia.ca/object/3dtv-play-overview.html

There is an install guide that should help with the setup and there is a 14 day trial to see if it works. If it does work though it looks like you will need to buy the 3DTV Play software for $40 if you want to continue using it.

Do you have a black outline around the edge of your screen? So its not using all of it? If yes its an over/underscan (always forget which way round...)

For an AMD graphics card, I'm assuming you have catalyst. Open up the catalyst software (right click on desktop if you can't find it, should be the top one).
On the left nav bar go to "My Digital Flat-Panels" then "Scaling Options". Slide the bar left until its on your screen properly (for me its about 3 notches to the left)

For any other graphics card I'm sure it'll be similar, but I don't know what you have to do step by step.

Hope that helps!
