Pain to install, but amazing to experience
on October 21, 2012
I have probably wasted 10+ hours of my life getting the 3DVision Emitter driver to install correctly. The installation program is also out of date, because if you are using a 3D projector, it fails to instruct you to also plug in the RS232 cord to the emitter, which is needed for proper use. The installation program needs to be revamped to be more compatible with Windows7 64bit, because for whatever reason, it refuses to install the emitter device drivers correctly. Only after many hours of pulling my hair out and trial and error did I discover that during a certain step in the setup process you have to unplug and replug the emitter quickly in order to complete the installation correctly. Why? I have no idea.
On the other hand... once it actually worked and I witnessed stereographic 3D for the first time... well, it is my new best friend!!! I just watched Avatar 3D on my 90" projection screen using the NVIDIA 3D Vision and a compatible projector and WOW... just WOW! I had no idea 3D tech has come this far!!
My only other complaint is the price. Also, extra sets of glasses are very expensive as well.
UPDATE*** Windows 7 did an update and auto restarted my computer. Guess what? Yep, the 3D emitter isn't working anymore. I cannot enable the 3D now. I am back to my 3D Vision installation woes... been working on it for hours now. SUPER ANNOYING.
UPDATE2** Solved my problems with a registry hack. For those of you having the same issues, change the value to the registry key below from 0 to 1. (key location may differ from OS to OS) This tricks the 3DVision program into skipping the 3D setup, where my problems occur. Works great now!
