I had this display corruption over HDMI with the Intel Graphics Driver 18.104.22.16856, but it disappeared when I rolled back to 22.214.171.12480. So that's worth a try.
Thanks. Yeah, I didn't have the 2d artficating with the previous driver, but I still had the 3d playback problems. It wouldn't play 3d mkv's at all, and the bluray's had the aforementioned problems.
So I'm guessing that 2D & 3D are two separate problems. To troubleshoot further: which player are you using for the 3D mkvs, and using which splitter & filters? As there are lots of potential combinations to try here.
I've tried Powerdvd 13 and 14 and Stereoscopic player - which I don't like at all. Point is, I know that Powerdvd works for my other systems. I'm not keen on getting something new just because of poor support from Intel. I'm going to try a trial of Corel Windvd tonight, just to see. There aren't many options for 3d Bluray playback on PC these days.
As far as splitters and filters, none... just the internal ones that whichever program uses. I use Lav filters for 2d playback.
I was checking the notes on the ST and as you mentioned the processor on this NUC does support Intel® InTru™ 3D Technology.
There are certain requirements to have this working perfectly fine. Here you have some more information:
I would really like to ask more information so I can check on this issue and help you. If you haven’t sent the NUC to replacement, please provide me with the following information:
- Graphics Report
-System information report
How to get it?
System Information: Click Start> Type System Information> Click File> Export> Save File> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
Graphics Report: Right click on desktop> Graphics Properties> Options> Drop Down Menu> Information Center> Save> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
Also I would like to know if possible the Part number of the HDMI cable, the software version you are using to playback the 3d videos and the Monitor model.
As I had mentioned, I do have a support ticket open. I know you are trying to help, but I would like you to know I have been building, repairing and supporting PC's and Server's for over 20 years, so I do know a bit about troubleshooting. Just saying that so we don't have to keep covering the same ground.
I have already ordered a replacement mini hdmi - though the one I have IS 1.4a capable. Just have to be sure. I can't find the current part number... lost that info, but I will let you know if the new one fixes the issue.
Interestingly enough, after rolling back the drivers again (to 10.18.14.4080) I was able to get a bluray to play fine in 3d, but only once. MKV's just play sound, no picture (I found this issue on a forum before for a NUC - it was definitely driver related). With the March driver update, MKV's will play, with the same problems previously mentioned, but I had the 2D artifacting.
For playing the files, I have tried PowerDVD 13 and 14. I can't get Corel Windvd to work at all, nor any other 3d player. Stereoscopic sort of works, but gives the same issues and doesn't have the features I need.
The projector and monitor I have used work fine with my other PC's for 3d. I have an epson 5030ub and an Asus VG278H.

Have you tried modifying the graphics in the bios/uefi to 1GB?
No, I hadn't seen that setting. What's it under? I'll do that tonight.
You need to press F2.. look for graphics.. I think default is 64MB.. You need to up this for 1GB.. The effect is that it will eat up some of your RAM to dedicate it to video buffer. This is what I think the setting does.. . So far.. I can play 4K videos without any issues;
Ok, cool. That might help... I have 8gb, so that shouldn't hurt the OS performance. Thanks again.
Changing that setting didn't help...I also messed with the apeture size, just to see. That caused it to stutter like crazy for the first minute of the movie. Same issues as before. I am trying a new HDMI cable tonight.
So, I tried a new HDMI cable. It didn't help. I am out of ideas and options and just awaiting further help (and likely a driver update) from Intel.
I am going to verify this from my side and will be back soon with more information.
I appreciate all information you have provided. Please attach the information I have requested on post #5 and include the System Identification Utility code generated by the software. Here you can run this program:
Provide all information as much as possible such as software used, hardware and type of connection. I am looking into this problem and all inputs are welcome.
