Currently it appears that DirecTv is requiring some stringent EDID requirements in order to watch content in 3D. For instance in many cases you can not connect an A/V Receiver between your 3D capable HDTV and your DirecTv receiver even if the A/V Receiver is 3D compliant. DirecTv is only supporting 3D if the 3D HDTV is hooked up directly to the DirecTv receiver. Most early adopters of technology such as 3D are A/V enthusiasts who own A/V Receivers and therefor this restriction does not make sense. Their are also several of us who own 3D ready Samsung DLP HDTVs who have bought the Mitsubishi 3DA-1 3D Converter and a Gefen HDMI Detective in order to watch 3D content. The EDID restrictions appear to be causing problems when watching 3D content on our HDTVs. Sometimes we can watch the 3D content and then sometimes it shows as not available. The Furthermore, some users have reported problems regarding 3D where they can watch pre-recorded content on their HDTVs but then their 3D HDTV tells them their TV is not 3D capable when they try to watch live 3D content. Many of these problems are not occurring using 3D blu-ray players and other set top boxes to watch 3D. Therefore, DirecTv must be doing something with the EDID information that is preventing several 3D HDTV owners from enjoying 3D content on their HDTV. If a person does not own a 3D capable set then they can not watch 3D content. Therefore, having such limiting 3D EDID restriction seems counter productive to the ultimate goal of promoting 3D programing and content. What do you think?
