I have a BenQ XL2420T 120Hz and DuoGreen 3D passive glass. How can I use it to watch 3D movies in PowerDVD 12? Please help, thanks!

    you should click the 3D button on player menu
    to configure the 3D environment click the triangle icon next to 3D button
    use the slider to adjust 3D depth
    Click on Display Device, you have several display type such as: Anaglyph red/cyan mode, 3D-Ready HDTV, Micro-Polarizer LCD 3D...output to 3D TVS with HDMI 1.4

    Hi arpan - I'm not familiar with that monitor, what drivers do you run? Special third party tri-def or adapted Nvidia?

    Either way, it depends on the kind of 3d movie you want to watch, and the kind of output your monitor requires. It doesn't sound like powerdvd supports your specific setup for watching 3d blu-rays, but http://www.3dtv.at/Products/Player/Index_en.aspx should play downloaded files in the format you require. I think - since your monitor is passive, it should be set to *interlaced* mode, whereby alternative lines are used.
