I have a 3D front projector that does all consumer 3D formats plus plus, however because it is not listed amoung those TV's supported by Directv I now have to jump through hoops to try and watch 3D content I have paid Directv to view, this is total BS and Directv may loose a subscriber from 1990 for this reason alone.

Cablevision does not have this requirement so I may walk


What providers have EDID requirements and which ones don't?

DirecTV is the only provider I'm aware of that has these ridiculous restrictions.

If Direct TV wants truly to be a leader in the implementation of 3D TV, a new 3D Receiver should be offered that has 2 HDMI outputs like the new Panasonic Blu-ray Player. This would eliminate many if not all of the problems extensively covered in this forum. In addition it would allow all of their customers that do not have 1.4a AV Receivers to continue to uses their audio home theater systems and watch 3D content.

One HDMI output carrying the video direct to the TV and one HDMI output carrying the audio to the AV Receiver.

There is no need to impose HDMI 1.4 restrictions anyway.
DTV = Digital Television

Supplying their customers with millions of new satellite receivers is obviously not a feasible solution. But providing a manual method of setting the receivers to send side-by-side 3D output would work and should be easy. Apparently DirecTV is not going to do that, though.

If only one is enforcing a standard then the standard is not the standard.

Confucius also states that "Man who stands on toilet is high on pot".

There is no standard. DirecTV is simply trying to minimize customer service calls.

Frustrating the customer with cumbersome EDID restrictions I believe will result in more customer service calls.
