Hi!

What I have:
  • Plex server 0.9.9.13 on Ubuntu;
  • Kodi 14.1 on Windows 8.1 with PleXBMC add-on (3.4.6~beta3 version). This PC connected to my 3D Samsung TV;
  • Side by side 3D movie "Hugo_3d_hsbs.mkv" as an example in the Plex server.

All works fine except recognition of my 3D movies in Kodi:
  • "HD" icon is shown instead "3D" near movie's title in Confluence skin;
  • Menu is not changed to stereoscopic mode automatically when I play 3D movie (UI messed up when I enable 3d on Samsung TV).

When I copy to PC and add same movie (Hugo_3d_hsbs.mkv) to the Kodi's library (without PleXBMC add-on) then 3D recognition works as expected.
Therefore i assume it's not related to the Kodi itself and settings for 3d play are correct

Can someone help me with this problem?

Perhaps try the lastest Helix compatible PleXBMC addon?

Hippojay is already answered in Plex forum:
"Plexbmc doesn't assign any 3d tags at the moment-so any labels will not be set.

Films play OK though."
