    Hi guys, I just picked up a LG 47GA6400 google tv. its the newest unit out right now.
    I love it! really great set.

    Is there any way to stream 3d content off a nas to the tv yet via googletv?

    *Or ANY Google TV for that matter.*

    Apparently PLEX/Serenity does not do this.
    I haven't tested VIMU yet.

    The Youtube app works Amazingly well for 3d! just not alot of content
    other than trailers and some clips.

    Will plugging in a drive direct play this content?
    Anyone know a way to stream 3d content from another machine to googletv?


    Thanks!
    J

    I know the built in File player can play from an external hard drive hooked up to a USB port on the set. It can make any video file 3D. I have done this and it works ok. As far as files that are ripped from a 3D source. I'm not sure.. you might want to email or call LG and ask what 3D file formats it supports.

    I do know VIMU does not support any 3D. though one of the programmers thought they could get it working if they had access to LG's builtin in 3D player app

    I have successfully played 3D video on Sony NSZ-GT1 using ViMu with Video on hard drive connected via SMB.

    What format and container? MVC 3d or a half side by side/over-under file?

    Good news is that HSBS 3d files stream wonderfully!
    The Stock installed LG Smart share app plays them perfectly.
    The strange part is that smart share uses the plex server.
    The Plex App will not play the files, but Smart share does.

    File will play in half sbs, hit the 3d button and your good to go.
