    I'm new on this forum because I've just bought a MINIX X7.
    When I try to play 3D video I can see picture splitted on two but cannot watch on 3D mode!
    What else should I do?

    You can try with xbmc gotham alpha 7 or 8, I think that is the only one that send the proper "3d mode on" signal with hdmi.
    With my epson projector I need to go into settings, switch to sbs 3d mode, and then turn 3d on when using any other video player.

    I've tried yesterday with Gotham alpha and after half hour trying have managed to watch 3D. So it's possible.
    • I had a big problem with on-screen commands, they were always "jumping".
    • When changing from Side By Side to TOP and DOWN it splits picture on 4 pieces..
    • I cannot set sound to 5.1.

    So I'll have to play more to set a right settings.

    XBMC will update automatically?

    Hi Milko

    How did you make 3d work on x7 ? I have a minix x7 mini but 3d is not working I have a asus 3d monitor which can't detect or play sbs it needs proper 3d frame packaged signal which minix G4 was able to output. But this x7s are junk :(.

    Help me if you got it working ?

    It still not working on My MINIX.
    I've bought BluRay player 3D.

    I was trying to get 3D picture from XBMC, but I think the problem is in output from MINIX.
    Tried to shrink resolution on output but nothing better.
    Maybe You know which resolution did You have on G4?

    Hi Milko,

    Thanks for the reply, there is not many people are interested in our issue unfortunately. here is what i did which worked for me in the past.

    1. i first purchased a very first mk802 version (clone) for $38 on amazon, red some internet article by some other good netizen friend. he suggested to downgrade to very first firmware version which i did. the first ROM for the allwinner A10 mk802 worked :). it can play all 3d formats but the ROM is slow and buggy in other aspects for the price it was the best. i would suggest if 3D is your main requirement get this.

    2. For better performance wanted to try Minix g4. the lastest ROM do have 3d support but plays only 2d-3d transilation for side by side video only. the resolution which worked for me i think is 1080i 60mhz or 1080p 60 mhz. i dont remember but i am going to order minix G4 or Minix x5 mini (claims to play 3d) again today will try and let you know.

    I`m interesting in watching 3D-movies via Minix x7. I got LG47LA669V and this tv support many 3D-formats. But when i try to watch 3D-movies, it looks not good, even if i adjust 3D-options in tv manualy. So, we will wait for answer from Minix Team.
    In any ways, thanks Minix team for a good media-box!

    I have the same problem. The movie is not align proper way. is like two frames are shifted about a 1/4 so you can see double. I tried different players and the same problem. It must be hardware problem. So I purchased this box because it shows that supports 3D formats but is not.
    And one more thing Playing and watching is two different things.

    I tested x5 mini. It plays side by side video in real 1.4a stereoscopic format. So far I watched few hd 3d mkvs they are nice on my asus vg278h nvidia 3d 2 monitor.

    Yes which player to play 3d? As confirmed by Minix, rockchip cannot support 3D.

    Hi itvplus,

    There are lot of people like some one replied who said works with mx player and x7. these people are so blind that don't even read the thread. they just play 2d side by side using the tv's feature to play 3d there nothing that the device x7 or mx player does there. some one from minix replied that rockchip doesn't support 3d which is totally nonsense, rockchip does support . he should be either a novice tech support person or some1 who don't read their own product specs.

    I tested, MK802, Minix G4, x7 mini and finally settled with an x5 mini. the 3d feature was by implemented by rockchip not by this minix people.

    so do this.
    1. play any movie which is side by side using native app "video"
    2. while video plays in side by side , click on the video to bring up the video controls in the. bottom.
    3. click "..." button. select 2d-3d translation and with in left - right option. the screen will flicker for a moment and you will see the 3d signal going to your device.

    Maybe it has something to do with the TV.
    I can't play on my Samsung TV. The picture is like Double Image of set by 1/4 of the screen.
    The file is SBS I did not tried TAB file.
    I did not had a problem with other TV boxes (Not Android Type)

    Other thing is.
    Did you changed Rom , Kernal or is just like you purchased?
