Yes I set up my projector to 3D Dlp like i always do when watching a 3d movie on PowerDvd software. But as far as watching 3d on diff source ie XBMC, youtube, the side by side window does not join.

Dee0007,
For this to work your projector should be able to handle 3D SideBySide movies. The remote problably has a 3D mode selector for this.

Naming is key. You want it to be movie (year).3d.hsbs.mkv (or whatever codec). I wouldn't put 3D in the movie name before the year. I'm pretty sure XBMC will only trigger 3d in the format I gave. I did a TON of testing on this. Make sure you are in full screen and not full screen window too.
