That is what the Nvidia GT430 is for. It decodes 3D content perfectly to my 3D TV in PowerDVD.
And for the record- the TV and not the software keeps the glasses in sync. You just need the program to tell the TV "it is 3D content!" (and even then you can force it into 3D mode).
I have already tried half SBS on my ION box and it works. I think that low of 3D res is unpleasant though. Soon I plan to try to shove a full SBS file through XBMC....
