3D TV not detecting 3D signal / Color issue / Playback 3D

by Airbander / May 30, 2013 4:05 AM PDT


So here is the issue :

2 days ago i turn on my pc to watch a tv show , when i try to watch a tv show i discover a screen split with color of red/blue-green
i restarted the pc and same thing

What i did to fix the issue and troubleshoot the issue:

1- Clean the pc and dusted the Graphic card
2- Image the pc with new windows 7 images with chipset driver and software for graphic cards
3- updated all rest of the driver
4- install MB2.6
5- install Total media theater

Then i tested this pc

Here are the results of my finding: With Medai browser

Sometimes the video will play fine and sometime the video will play with low color yellow OFF Color
Restart the pc and then video playback normal sometimes or sometimes it will play off color either green as you will see screenshots or as yellow

MOVIES HD MKV H264 , AVI , WMV , ect all 1080p
it will play back fine sometime and sometimes it will be off either sound playback in background and image is black screen no pc or sometime no sound

3D Videos Full Blu-Ray
Some video play with TMT5 as extrnal player in MB with color is off or sometime pc goes dark greens color and i have to rest the pc
sometime full blu-ray will play but no image dark black screen cant exit out

TV never been able to play SBS in the past and now even after manual seting the tv to 3D mode with SBS

3D Top/Botom
Same thing as SBS never been able to play it is always off

Now Test with \\Computername\Drive name\Folder name\Movie folder for 3D

Normal movie will play fine in WMV player no issue or color issue sound and color is fine

SBS will play but color get off and effect wont work as usual again never been able to play SBS MKV files but now color is off
TMT5 or WinDVD

Full Blu-ray does not work by \\ because to many files to grab one to playback

TV Show play ok

I called Vizio tech support we rest the tv to factory default did not work , i switch the pc with my 2nd pc same results
2 diffrent pc with nvidia graphic card diffrent models of graphic cards

You can see screen shots and more deatils about my issue on this page

So that it that is my issue

Just one last idea.

Does a 3D BluRay player work? If not, then I agree the TV has some issue.

Hello Guys

The good news is that i fix the problem with my SBS and HSBS / TBS Viewing

The fix:

1- Re-wrote edid for the tv

2- Update Shark007 and removed suggested shark setting

3- Updated Nvidia Drivers and 3D Vinson

4- Enabled 3D in Nvidia 3D Vision

5- Disabled set up strereoscopic 3D

That all and now everything works 2D and 3D including all formats of 3D playback

SO this is an update on this issue

Thank you very much

I can't imagine that the makers expected you to do all that!

It's one example of a drawback when you...

...go with Vizio instead of a better supported brand. That would be your next test- bring in an alternative HDTV brand, and test it out with your 2 HTPCs. I know it's a pain, and will cost you some $$, but that's about all that's left since Vizio clearly doesn't provide support as such.

FWIW, it's not the first time I have heard of a Vizio puke on PC content from a supported graphics card output. <shrug>.

I am still thinking that the NVida driver or software is causing the issue
i have passive tv not an Active 3D tv so i am still waiting on Nvidia to response while i am doing my troubleshooting with 3D and normal playback

Also i never been able to play SBS or T/B 3D video and Youtube 3D trialers wont work with this tv
which is confusing to troubleshoot
