    That I haven't done. Best place for info on that might be the 1020 thread over at AVS.

    The 3D version is being replayed now on channel 103 (n3D).

    Sure you're not looking at a favorites list that doesn't have that channel it?

    My Guide says MLB on n3D, but all I actually see there are miscellaneous previews or promos. No MLB.

    Well, I went and checked and see the same thing. Wonder what happened to cause the screw up?

    Yeah :( too bad. I was excited to put my new set to the test. Can I record 3D on my HR22?

    You're supposed to be able to record 3D on any HR2X, just the HR20 that can't play back. I've recorded 3D on a HR23-700 and then used MRV to play back on a HR24-500 which has the 3D set on it.

    You cannot record 3D Channels 103/104/106 on a HR20 (and logically, you cannot play it back either on a HR20 either).

    I don't have a HR20 anymore but DirecTV has said you can record 3D channels and use MRV/Whole Home DVR to play back those recordings on a HR21/22/23/24.

    With this new release (40d--using the HR24-500) whenever I playback a 3-D recording and fast forward, when I resume PLAY, the Samsung panel(PN58c8000) is forced into a reset of 3-D playback. The screen blanks out and the auto 3-D setup on the panel is reset. It makes the fast forward playback absolutely useless. It was fine just before this new update to 40d. If D* wants to be the #1 provider of 3-D, they had better correct this ASAP. I'm curious if others have experienced this on other DVRs.

    My setup: Denon 3311/Samsung PN58c8000/D* HR24-500--HDMI out from DVR into the Denon 3311 and out to the HDMI input of the Samsung panel(everything was working perfectly BEFORE this latest update to 40d).

    I have an HR24-500 running 040d, also, using a Pioneer vsx-1020 AVR between the HR24-500 and my Samsung pn58c8000. I just checked FF and the other trick-play functions, and they all work correctly, for me. I suggested in the AVS thread where you and "el pablo" reported this bug that you go into the Setup menu of your HR24-500 and set HDTV > Native to Off. Did you try that?

    In any case, it's the 3rd report of this bug I've seen (you, "el pablo", and RAD), and I hope you'll report it above in the stickied thread "3D TV .. What doesn't work (Hardware)". I think it would also be good if you would check to see if the bug is still there when you take your Denon AVR out of the circuit by connecting your HR24 up directly to your TV.

    Yes, I always run native off since I don't like the delay that's introduced when it's on and changing resolutions.

    I did hookup directly from the HR-500 to the Samsung PN58c8000 as a test: With the 3311 out of the loop everything works fine. I'm in "NATIVE OFF" and that did solve one problem: when I selected another D* channel with the remote, in NATIVE ON, the screen of the panel blacked out, then reset itself and showed the new resolution on screen and then the channel appeared-this took about 10 seconds. Is there a way to disable the resolution popping up on the screen whenever the resolution changes on the PN58c8000? Again--these problems only started AFTER the 40d update. Everything was fine before. I have reported this on the "update" threads here at Dbstalk. Any other ideas?? Can I go back to the older, previous update without losing my recordings? BTW-the 3311 and the panel are fantastic and I highly recommend them both.

    Just read a report that stated that Toshiba is coming out with "glassless" 3D sets. I know Sony has a trial model that doesn't need glasses. Personally, I wouldn't buy a Toshiba anything, but I think that with two manufacturers looking to technology that allows for glassless viewing, we'll see them on the market in the next year or so. I sure hope so, I can't wear glasses over glasses.

    On another note, I just got a report that Toshiba is going out of the TV business, which contradicts the other report. Both reports are from the same source.

    Not so far as I know.

    I don't know whether you'd lose recordings by reverting to an earlier release (if that's possible). If that could help you, it seems it wouldn't be for long, anyway.

    I have no ideas for you, except making a bug report in the "3D TV .. What doesn't work (Hardware)" thread.

    Primetime19, Do you think this would work with an Onkyo PreAmp 885 which is 3 yrs old?

    NOTE: THIS WAS FIRST POSTED IN THE NEWER TOPIC "DIRECT 3D WHAT DOESN'T WORK". Just wanted to make sure everyone who was working for a setup that did work sees this.

    Hey all, I have been reading and doing lots of research as to which receiver to try as even the 1.4 receivers are having issues with direcTV's 3D signal. I can however confirm the following does work:

    Mitsubishi WD-73835 TV (Using 1.4 HDMI cables) connected to:
    Mitsubishi 3DC-1000 Adapter (using 1.4 HDMI cables) connected to:
    Denon AVR-2311 CL connected to:

    1. PS3 System (using a 1.4 HDMI cable)
    2. DirecTV hr24-500 (using a 1.4 HDMI cable)
    3. Xbox 360 (using 1.3 cable)

    Note: I am not using DirecTV's recommended setting of passing the Audio to the Reciever using an Optical cable and connecting the adapter directly to the 3DC-1000 (kind of pointless if you have multiple components needing the Adapter). I am using 1.4 HDMI cables and the Denon AVR-2311 CL is passing DirecTV's 3D signal without any interruptions.

    I watched 3D in my house last night and it was pretty cool. If you have any questions on my setup or how I got it to work, feel free to ask. I was just as frustrated as alot of you. One thing when hooking up the system, you must power everything down and back up when you first hook everything up as DirecTV's signal wasn't recognizing the signal the first time through. I think the HDMI connections needed to be reset, but I haven't had any problems other than that.

    Also, go to electronics-expo.com and use the coupon code LABORDAYWEEKEND and get the receiver I mentioned above for $647.00 including shipping and taxes (it's priced at $899.99 at BestBuy and Ultimate Electronics. That's where mine came from (all new non-refurbished systems in case you're wondering).

    One note on this receiver - the IPOD Dock / USB port on the front does not seem to be compatible with iPhone's OS4.0. iPhone OS3.0 are reported to be working.
