hmm thats different than me, 3d plays fine for me, its only animated 3d movies that get messed up on the sides and not all of them do that.

I used to have the following problems when playing 3D movies with my passive LG 3DTV with XBMC using an ATI 4850HD graphics card:
(it seems similar to some of the problems the last posts describe)
- the two images seemed too separated. I could still see 3D but it seemed a bit weird and it was tiring to watch. Without the glasses I could clearly see the two images overlapped but separated by at least 5cm. When playing directly with the TV, it was more like one blurry image.
- 3 cm or so on each side were black when using the glasses, making the 3D image smaller. This did not happen when playing directly with the TV.
I eventually found out that it was a problem linked to underscan/overscan of the TV - Graphics card.
I solved the problem as follows.
- On the computer, I disabled undescan/overscan (setting it to 0).
- On the TV, in the aspect ratio settings, I found a setting called "just scan".
It seems you cannot use the overscan compensation of the graphics card to play 3D movies.
Now the 3D is perfect.

I was unable to watch 3d movies with an external player in XBMC unfortunately.
But I found the following method that works great with the normal xbmc player. Please see this thread.

Somebody managed the patch to work with MacOSX version of XBMC?
If no, how can i help with this modification?

No one can compile the modification for MacOSX?

I've just got some 3d movies and our first 3d tv however xbmc doesn't play the files correctly... So I've read the thread and it seems the advice is to use xbmc plus MPC?
I've got bluray discs and my backups and some sbs sample files such as trailers etc and none seem to work correctly in xbmc?
Is there a way for xbmc to play these files (sbs) rather than having to use MPC?

Most 3D TVs need to be manually put in 3D mode for side-by-side/over-under content. I'm assuming that you've tried that already, but I could be wrong.

Yea I have an LG passive 3D HDTV and when I use xbmc to ply an SBS file, the tv detects the sample as a normal 2d source and only offeres me the option to enable the 2d to 3d conversaion?

My work around is I've set up 2 profiles in XBMC. One for all my media and content. The other strictly for 3D sbs movies. Since XBMC uses standard monitor settings I've re adjusted the video settings in my main profile to fit my screen perfectly. Then in my 3d profile I would get to the video adjustment screen and turn on my sbs setting on my tv and put my glasses on. Then would adjust the screen with my glasses so that all to white bars just barely disappear Works perfectly for both profiles. Hope this helps someone

is there any 3d movie out there that is designed to "tune" your 3d screen? So simply turn on that movie and it would show lines and 3d images and give suggestions on what needs changing. I noticed that out of the box xbmc usually is close to 3d, but when you change the screen and start stretching/changing/shrinking it really can screw up your 3d image.
I have a 21:9 tv and this does not allow me to just "easilly" change everything it seems.
