Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
Does anyone actually use the setup in this thread with AMD ? I bought a Ryzen 2400G motherboard as a candidate Kodi box, but kodi crashes whenever it tries to do frame packed 3d. Asked here already, but no reply. Will certainly try MPC-BE+MadVR to have another program attempt to switch on Frame Packed 3D, but would be lovely to get reports if its known to work or not. I've also not seen anything at all about 3D in AMDs config program/GUI, which makes me somewhat suspicious, but then again, Intel doesn't have that either...

And... i also can't figure out how to make NVidia work reasonably in my setup. Issue is that i use projector, and whenever frame packed 3D is used, projector switches display to color/brightness setup that only makes sense with glasses... which is kinda nice.... except that there is no 2D-1080p24 resolution set up by NVidia, so all 2D movies also run into this issue. I tried to create a custom 2D 1080p resolution, but can't get kodi to switch to that. Maybe with one of the external players thats easier ... ? Also posted here in before.

Thanks!

I don't need gaming drivers and have not tested.  I continue to use v.416.81.

Thanks a lot. I will certainly try, especially because i also have a 144hz desktop for gaming. If it does work indeed, then it might so for a few versions until Nvidia Devs do that start breaking things for 3d in driver updates *sigh*. Petition would still be good. 
I concur 100%. I'm also looking around for said petition. I'm also inclined to start a website for it if I can find some support. I dropped $1.5K on RTX 2080 Ti water-cooled & everything for my Gaming. I don't do 3D Gaming but my rig couples as HTPC and used to do 3D Movies. A month after I bought the card 3D Support was gone - I had no inclination. Very disappointing. 

Anyhow, thanks for the link, @brazen1 - I'll be looking into it. Appreciate it.

I can confirm: This works!! I'm now using the latest nVidia Drivers, 431.60, with full Stereoscopic 3D support, including all prior options in nVidia Control Panel.

Tested 3D Blu-ray ISO in PowerDVD 19 Ultra. 3D Working flawlessly. 

I did need to deviate from the original instructions and want to provide a few tips to those looking for the same:
  • I strongly suggest *NOT* to use DDU for removing the drivers, as suggested by the Guide. DDU is a very powerful and highly destructive software, especially in Safe Mode. It can really screw up your Registry and cause more headaches, as it did in my case. I spent the better part of my day restoring my system from the destruction caused by DDU. Just use "Uninstall" from the Control Panel. It is more than sufficient. 
  • Like many users, Windows 10 inadvertently converted my Graphics Driver from "Standard" to "DCH". You cannot use the instructions or links provided in the Guide if you have a DCH driver installed. You cannot install Standard over DCH, or DCH over Standard. I had to use a completely different resource from the Internet to successfully remove "DCH" Graphics Driver from my system. Once this was done, I was able to install the Standard drivers. 
So to recap my steps:
  1. Uninstall current nVidia Graphics Driver from Control Panel. Remove all nVidia related software using Uninstall & Reboot
  2. If you have DCH Package installed (Click on "System Information" in nVidia Control Panel to find out), you will need to completely remove the DCH Package (You will need to be Offline - Disable Network Adapter while doing all of this). I'll post the link to these instructions here later, or just google it. 
  3. Install Standard Driver which contains the 3DVision package
  4. Install latest Standard Driver overwriting the previous installation (Make sure you have Copied 3DVision package to this driver's folders)
  5. Use FVIE software to change the version of the two files mentioned in the guide to the latest version - "3160" in my case. It's the last 4 digits of the version, example "431.60" gives us "3160".
  6. Reboot
That's it! Stereoscopic 3D becomes part of your latest driver and works flawlessly.
