I don't agree with the other posters that Directv is at fault here. Their configuration says that if you do a direct connection with a compatible 3dtv then it will work fine and so far that has been proven to be true. Unfortunately all the people it works fine for aren't the ones bitching here about a problem that is probably caused by their incompatible equipment connected between the Directv receiver and the 3D TV. Another good example is Directv's Dolby Digital 5.1 output. If you go from a Directv receiver directly to the AV receiver DD5.1 works flawlessly. Like most other Directv customers I discovered most tv manufacturers cripple the optical/coaxial digital outputs on the tv so only OTA HD outputs to AV receivers properly and audio passed-thru doesn't. Is that Directv's fault? No. It is a nuisance? Yes. But it's still not Directv's fault. If I want proper DD5.1 audio I connect the satellite dish receiver, blu-ray player, whatever, directly to the AV receiver. If I want crippled DD audio I pass-thru the tv.
