Quote from MDEA:
Our adapter is not an independent HDMI repeating device; it designed specifically to match to our TVs and becomes “one device” with the TV. It is specifically an upgrade device for the matching TVs. The TV/Adapter combination sends a single EDID.
An AV Receiver is not a simple HDMI switch or pass through device, it is a repeater that has video processing. Because of this it has its own EDID.
When a source device (Blu-ray player, Cable Box, Satellite Receiver, etc.) is connected to the AV Receiver, the source device receives the AV Receiver’s EDID analyzes the list of supported features, video formats, audio formats etc. and normally blocks everything that is not common between the AV Receiver and that source device – for instance, if the AV Receiver does not support DTS Audio in 7.1 lossless format and the Blu-ray player can support this, the Blu-ray player will still block this type of audio because the AV Receiver does not support. This is also true of 3D signals, if the AV Receiver does not support 3D, the Blu-ray player will block this type of signal. End Quote
So if we try to use a Gifen spoofer between the DVR and AVR it should be programmed with an EDID from a 3D capable AVR which has similar functionality as our existing non 3D ready AVR. I suppose the EDID information might be dynamic to reflect how we have the AVR programmed??? The solution mentioned by GregLee is sounding better all the time...
