I have not but I know TMT now supports 3D and there may be some discussion over on Arcsoft's forums concerning how it works.

In their BD Advisor under 3D it told me that my GPU is incompatible, and when you check the compatability list it only has nVidia ones in it.
Unless they have updated it in the last 2 or 3 months to be able to use ATi? It's of no concern to me so I haven't updated the advisor to recheck.

as far as I know to get 3D you will need

an NVIDIA Card and the Nvidia 3D Glasses and Attachment + 3D Monitor
or
a 3D TV (and glasses)

+ content...

If you are using the NVidia solution you do not need a 3D Monitor but your monitor must support at least 100Hz refresh rate.

Ok so I now face another problem, the GTS450 I have ordered has mini HDMI and I cannot find a HDMI to HDMI mini adapter thats supports 1.4a.
But I have since found out the new GT 430 has normal HDMI 1.4 and is a card for the purpose of HTPC
So I think this may be the go, once I get this card in and the blu-ray drive in I should be all good to go on 3D content fingers crossed

If going to use Cyberlink download their latest BD advisor (free) and run it. It will tell you what is/isn't compatible with PowerDVD 10 for 3D

Have a read here if you haven't already

AVSforum is the premiere resource for all things HTPC (and AV) IMO (although I'll always come here when my questions have a local flavour Wink)

I've been using the adapter supplied with my 450 card without problem, PowerDVD is currently the only software that works perfectly with 3D and nvidia's new 3DTV drivers (I have TMT3 as well but it's not quite as good as PowerDVD imo).  I'm running blu-ray 3D content from my HTPC direct to my Samsung 3D Plasma and everything works nicely TV autodetects 3d and tells you to put glasses on etc.

My card is a Gigabyte it came with a mini to regular HDMI adapter.  I would expect though that the adapters sold by the likes of Jaycar and DSE will work fine.
