    Before you go and buy the software you may want to email them and ask. I do not see your particular model listed under the supported list of LG tvs. Or maybe check their forums and see if anyone has reported it working correctly. I think one thing a lot of people always seem to forget as well is that gaming in 3d to your tv via hdmi you will not be getting 120hz, although that doesn't seem to matter to some people. Me personally it was just too ghosty for me so I splurged and got the ASUS VG278H. I do use my 3dtv for movies and xbox and ps3 3d games though and its just fine

    Yea I had originally hooked my pc up to my 3d tv, its great for emulators ect and a game or 2. When it comes down to wanting the best 3d in my pc games though I just go with my monitor, although now my pc is no longer hooked up to my tv at all. I was trying to play swtor in 3d on my tv and It was just way too ghosty especially after seeing it on my monitor. Always thought of using my pc as my central entertainment hub but now that I have an xbox a ps3 (bluerays) and a wii u, i just no longer need it for those purposes, so now I get to play all my pc games in the office undisturbed and don't have to take turns with the kids if I don't want hehe

    But does that then allow you to do 1080p at 60hz?

    Because the Nvidia 3DTV program only supports max 720p at 60hz.

    I've been trying forever to find a way to get 'proper' 3D on my 55" passive 3D tv.

    Next time please do not tell someone who has a Nvidia card to use that crappy hack job driver that is for meant for AMD.. Nvidia has their own 3D drivers that THEY MAKE and work as soon as they are installed. They are also updated all the time. Your advice could have caused him endless hours of confusion and grief. Luckily it looks like he is on the right track "I hope" and going with NVIDIA 3DTV PLAY which is right there in the Nvidia control panel.

    He has a Passive 3DTV.
    His 3D is 1080p with half vertical resolution per eye, at 60 frames per eye.
    However, if the TV isnt supported by NVidia, then it will not let you use higher than 720p at 60fps per eye, this situation is very likely.
    I am in the same boat, I have an LG passive 3DTV and have to use Tridef to get full quality.

    He may not have a choice if NVidia dont directly support his TV.

    on my active samsung its either 720p@60hz or 1080p@24hz this is not a nvidia problem its the max capability of the tv. you can disable vsync for better experience. i also have an LG passive tv but have not tryd with nvidia 3dtvplay. but i would think its is the same. the tridef program offers other 3d modes like side by side that are better for gaming at 1080p BUT takes more tweaking.

    If its a 1080p passive with ye normal HDMI connection, the TV is capable of receiving 1080p stereo @ 60Hz with half vertical resolution for each eye.
    But if using the NVidia drivers for stereo and the NVidia drivers dont support the TV, the gfx card wont be able to output 1080p stereo @ 60Hz half res per eye.
    I have this issue and is why I use Tridef with my LG passive 3DTV.

    Tridef is limited with NVidia cards, it cannot give out full 1080p @ 60Hz/eye no matter what connection is used, whereas with AMD cards it can give full 1080p if using Dual DVI or Displayport.
    But it can give out 1080p @ 60Hz, 1/2 res per eye over old school HDMI, which is ideal for passive 3DTVs.
