  • Dell Inspiron 17R SE (3D)

    Just replaced an aging Dell XPS 15, and as they don't make 17s anymore I was forced to get an Inspiron. :-(
    After a MB replacement on day one, the machine appears to work fine, great spec for $1.25K & 3D to boot.

        Hi, I got this setup solution from an Nvidia support guy. You have to:

        o make sure the graphics drivers are updated to latest version (the 3D Vision gives you a free upgrade to the 3DTV Play S/W else it's $40).

        o make the Epson projector (or your 3D TV) the main display (IMPORTANT)!

        o check the TV resolution is 1080p (with a good refresh rate).

        o make sure cyberlink powerdvd 10 is set to nvidia 3d mode, 3D is On, etc.

        o Enable 3d play in the nvidia control panel (you can test this)

        o Ensure 3D is set on the projector, auto 3d mode, glasses are on, etc.

        o Load & play your 3D Blu-ray on the laptop connected via an HDMI 1.4 cable.

        Phew, that's a lot of stuff, but it worked for me. Now I can watch 3D on the laptop via the Nvidia glasses OR 3D on the Epson projector with its sound & glasses, great stuff. Damn shame Dell don't mention this to you!

          Now found that Nvidia 3DTV Play is not free, but $40 is too much!

                    And price below $1.5K...
                    Was thinking of replacing one of the HDD with an SSD, but the mSata Cache makes it almost as fast. Shutdown & full restart in about 50s.
