    Man, you need to shop around, you got ripped off. I got the same thing for $20 from Amazon. Looks like it's bumped up to $30 now, but still quite a bit less than the $37 you paid. Unless you got some collectors edition that I don't know about.

    Also I saw in the latest tech notes that both the HR20-100s and -700s are on the "non-recover" list which means you may keep them after the free upgrade.

    DIRECTV doesn't want them back, though you will have to keep them activated on your account to watch the recorded shows on them of course.

    What model TV do you have and how do you have it connected to your receiver? They really don't add models, the TV needs to support the side-by-side 3D format.

    I originally didn't get the TV I have for the 3D but I have found that I enjoy some of the shows and sports that I've watched in 3D. I just wish there were more movies to watch, besides the 3D PPV movies. I bought The Avengers in 3D and it was very impressive.

    I would love HBO and Starz to allow Directv to have the 3D versions of their movies to be on the On Demand channel like cable has.

    it's a samsung model pn59d550. I've watched 3d movies on it before, but when i put a 3d channels i just get side by side screens of the same thing. as far as how its connected to the receiver i don't know, I've just signed up a month ago. How should it be connected?

    edit: nvm i got it to work just have to fiddle with the 3d settings. kuuulll

    hmm ... I have the 3D blu-ray and all I can say is meh. The picture is dark. Action scenes are hard to follow and 3D doesn't add anything tangible to the movie. We'll probably never put on the 3D glasses again.

    I didn't think that 3D on avengers was that great either, I have a Panasonic GT30 plasma.

    I can't stand watching 3D on my Panny plasma. As soon as you put the glasses on, the picture dims and I find the whole experience sickening. I didn't buy it for the 3D feature, I had looked at many Panny plasmas with 3D capability in stores and didn't like what I saw, I bought it for the great 2D PQ.

    My Samsung automatically adjusts the picture to make it brighter when it detects 3D programming to help compensate for that problem.

    Is that a plasma or an LCD? Every Panny plasma I looked at in stores did the same thing. Never looked at the Sammy plasmas.

    Then you need to properly calibrate one of the 3D picture modes.

    You'd think Panasonic would have done the same thing, wouldn't you?

    No. There isn't a single display on the market today that comes with properly calibrated picture modes. It varies from panel to panel. The closest you can come to that is the THX modes and even those need some tweaking.
