Playing 3D iso file, am I getting full 3D?

  • Hi everyone.

    I have everything set up and running pretty well on my Pi 3B but I’m unsure of one thing

    I have enable full HD HDMI modes for stereoscopic 3D but when playing a 3D ISO file, tvservice -s returns the following

    [HDMI CEA (16) 3D T&B RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz, progressive

    Does this mean I’m getting full 3D? The T&B seems to be confusing, I assumed I’d get a response similar to this from the Kodi forums:

    state 0x12000a [HDMI CEA (32) 3D FP RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 23.98Hz, progressive  

    Am I doing something wrong? I know the iso is the full thing so I’m lost.


  • One bit to update, I forced the resolution to 24fps and now I get this:

    state 0x12000a [HDMI CEA (32) 3D FP RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 24.00Hz, progressive

    But my Pi 3 stutters and is insanely choppy, it’s unwatchable.

    I switched to an MKV (1080p, HD audio) and that seems okay but if I switch to a 4K file that’s 1/3 the size of the 3D iso (stored on a samba share) it caused the Pi to hang and simply freeze. Forced me to do a hard reboot as I couldn’t log in via ssh. And another, both to confirm work on my Apple TV 4 (non 4K), cause Kodi to crash. Trying the playback of the 1st movie again runs, but with display corruption. This isn’t absolutely necessary to play them back, but I don’t understand why it doesn’t work

    I am running 9.0.1 just for clarification

  • Thanks so much for the reply, I went back to fps 23 and for whatever reason it's working fine now.

    I deeply apologize for wasting everyone's time, but I guess if it takes just making a post to solve the issue, I guess that's something? So.... thanks! And again, sorry..
