    Hi

    I recently got the BenQ w1070 projector with the sainsonic 3D glasses.
    Now I wan't to play 3D movies from my computer (downloaded files, not discs) but I don't know anything about 3D.
    So any help with how I proceed would be appriciated.

    Thanks

    Buy a 3D HTPC and hook it up.

    First, you need to be connected via a card that supports full HDMI 1.4 complaince - that's a 7000 series AMD and up and most of the 600 series Nvidia and up.Next, you'll need to use a player that correctly sends the signal and recognizes 3D output. This can be something like Acsoft TMT5/6, and PowerDVD. Please note: players like VLC do NOT NOT properly pass 3D Video streams. Nvidia also has a 3D player.Make sure your pre-processor or receiver if you are using one is 3D ready and correctly passes a 3D signal.Finally, make sure your display device is true 3D.If all of these steps are true, you should be good to go!

    My display device BenQ w1070, is 3D.
    Im using my laptop with GT 660M, connected with HDMI 1,4 cable.I tried searching, but can't find any information regarding this GPU and HDMI 1,4.

    I have to start the movie in 3D to be able to turn on 3D on my display device, right?

    That's funny. I've found 500 forum topics on the NVidia GeForce 660m.
