Bill, one quick clarification - you mentioned in one of your responses that PC 3d and hdmi 1.4 3d are not possible without an adapter box - that is not correct, actually. Both ATI and Nvidia fully support directly outputting hdmi from a PC for movies or for games.

Nvidia I believe requires a 240 or higher (though keep in mind 3d gaming requires about twice the capability from the card), and ATI requires one of their 6xxx series cards. And of course the card must have an HDMI port.

So long as those requirements are met, you can do the following:

Assuming you have a bluray drive, bluray 3d plays from Cyberlink PowerDVD or Arcsoft TotalMediaTheatre to hdmi 1.4 via ATI card with no additional software (Nvidia requires the 3dtv play software).

90%+ games can operate in 3d using tridef or iz3d on an ATI card or using 3dtv play on an nvidia card.

The down side is that you have to make a tradeoff in reference to resolution vs framerate; since 3d over hdmi 1.4 does not support 1080p@60hz, you have to either run at 24hz or drop to 720p for 60hz.
