Title says it all...  I have my pc hooked up to my 3dTV via a DVI to hdmi cable and via vga to a lcd for when not watching movies etc...  My video card is nothing fancy - ATI Radeon HD 3600.

Does the media player matter?  VLC or MPC?

    I believe that you require HDMI 1.4a to fully support 3D on your TV.

    Therefore, you probably need to upgrade your video card to one that supports HDMI 1.4a - i.e. Nvidia GTX 460 or AMD 6800 series or recently launched 67xx, 66xx, 65xx and 64xx series cards - cheapest is arounnd $55.00.

    You'll also need a suitable vice player such as PowerDVD 10 Ultra 3d.
