It's not ESPN and D* that made the decision, it is D*. They are fed both the mandatory 720p T/B and 720p SbS feeds. They choose to use the SbS feed. My correspondance with them as of this week is they have no intention of changing the feed. It's not just an AVR issue, it is also a problem with JVC projectors. Hopefully Satelliteracer knows something different than management has passed on to me.

There is an Issue with ESPN 3D if you have your D* receiver connected through a Sony BDV-HZ970W Blu-ray Player.

All other 3D channels will work fine but ESPN 3D will only work if you plug your D* receiver directly to the TV.

My Tv is Samsung UN55D8000.

overall would you say the glasses can also cause a problem like a headache dizzieness or eye problems?


I watch 3D on average of 1-3 times a month. While there are lots of articles and research out there to the contrary, my friends and family have never complained of any of those symptoms. A first-time user may initially feel like they'll get those symptoms, but after you relax there's no issues. After 2 or more hours, I might say there is a tiny sensations of eye strain. It's more like a slight sense of relief when you take them off. Same as if you've ever gone to a 3D movie. In fact the entire experience is much like going to a 3D movie, so you should experiment with that.

I happen to think that 3D is fun and worth the price, esp since the price difference has gone down so much lately. But my bias is that I paid the price. Note that there's also a bias of opinion from folks who don't own 3D. The bias involves both of us wanting to justify our decisions.

I have Sony 40NX711 hooked directly to an HR21-700. It works well with all the regular DirecTV 3D channels. I haven't tried 3D ppv.

Thats because its the "what doesn't work" thread. Sony owners aren't reporting in because they do work just fine. NX, HX and LX series are known to be good.

Good Luck.

Set up my HR21 to the Mits adapter and then to my Mits display a few months ago. Worked fine the few times I tried it.

Hadn't used it in awhile and have tried a few times in the last couple of weeks and always with the same result:

As soon as I switch to a 3D channel, the Mits adapter lights up to show it's receiving the 3D signal, but the TV screen remains black. I do get audio through the AVR. Once I'm locked onto a 3D signal, it's very hard to get off of it. Changing channels on the DVR often does nothing (the light on the DVR blinks, but the DVR remains on the same channel - can tell via the audio). Sometimes hitting channel up many times in conjunction with List, menu, etc., will result in the DVR fixing itself and sometimes I've actually had to RBR.

Anyway, not sure if it's an issue with the adapter or the DVR, but haven't been able to watch 3D at all in the last couple of weeks.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Yeap. I have the Sony HX820 and it works perfectly running through a Denon 2112 receiver.

My Yamaha RX-V867 receiver does not work with DirecTV 3d. It does work fine with 3d from my PS3.

Can someone test something for me? Is it possible that the signal on ESPN3D is now 1080i? I see boxing (2:25 pm ET) through my Pioneer VSX-1020 and my TV is saying its in 1080i, not the problematic 720pSBS.

Is it possible that DirecTV granted me 2 big wishes on the same day!!!?

I won't get to excited until I test some more or hear more from you guys. Would that change have gotten past Sixto's uplink reports?

My Samsung is showing ch 106 as 1920x1080/60i, so looks like Satelliteracers info was correct. Enjoy, just in time for the start of CFB this month.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I guess I should be happy. Now I can rip my system apart and re-do it again.
Perhaps I Misremembered.

SR did ask us to have a little faith. I hope you didn't rip it apart too much. :grin: Its nice to have all my devices going through my Pioneer 1020. That ESPN 720pSBS was the only quirk I ever experienced doing it that way.

I sure hope the industry retires that format!

Looking forward to giving it a try when I get home. :-)

I never buy PPV, but I remember reading on here that the 3D PPV channel sometimes had issues with these receivers. I don't know if that's still the case or not.

If I had to venture a guess, its fixed. In fact that issue very well may've offered DTV some motivation to fix it in the first place. I don't blame 'em.

I don't ever buy PPVs either, but one of the ways I discovered this whole issue was because there were kids visiting and I was going to buy a PPV 3D for them.

I'm not sure I have a hardware issues or not. I just got a 3D TV a couple of weeks ago. The first real show I watched in 3D was last night's Badger UNLV game on ESPN. For me, the sound was out of sync the entire game. Did anyone else happen to watch? Just wondering if it was an ESPN problem or a ME problem.

I have a WD-82738 Mits direct HDMI attached to an H21. I have coax digital sound from the Mits to a Pioneer Elite receiver (sorry, don't remember the model number). I have not seen any other sound sync issues other than ESPN 3D. However, I've not watched enough 3D channels to know if I might be having the issues on all 3D channels.

I would run the audio directly from the H21 to your receiver and see if that helps. Also, usually TV's don't pass through DD5.1 audio just 2.0, yours might just that most don't.
