I just tried to watch the Harlem Globetrotters game in 3D today but I am getting a message that my TV does not support 720P 3D. I have watched other sports programs like ESPN 3D which is in 720P before with no problems. Does anyone know why this is happening?

My current setup is: Panasonic 65 inch Plasma (TCP-65VT25), DirecTV HD DVR 24-500 and a Pioneer VSX 1020 (which is 3D capable).

I tried the 3D movie Caroline on my PS3 which is also hooked up to my Pioneer VSX 1020 AVR and the 3D worked great!

I am wondering if the latest DirecTV update that I received recently messed up the 3D on DirecTV HR24-500?????

Thanks for anyone's help. :)

Try running an HDMI cable directly from your HR24 to the TV. Then reboot the DVR.

Some AV receivers and soundbars in the HDMI chain are known to prevent some 3D content from being shown.

Ok, I was able to fix my 3D problem by doing a RBR (red button reset) on my DirecTV HR24-500. Once I did my 3D picture on 103 and the other DirecTV channels returned. I did not have to unhook my HDMI from my Pioneer AVR.

Thanks for the responses I got to my problem.
