Brand new HR-34. HR-34->Onkyo Receiver->Panny TV. The 3D channels in the guide show up as greyed out, as in not available to me. The DirecTV installer said I need to connect it directly to the TV to get 3D. Well, the HR-24 that I unplugged and plugged the HR-34 into the same coax and HDMI worked great through the receiver for 3D. I literally just swapped the boxes, and now the HR-34 doesn't see my Panny as 3D capable, even though I've been watching 3D for a year with an HR-24 on it.

Any ideas?

Same problem on my Onkyo HT-S5500 with HR-34.

The only advice I can give is to power up the TV and AVR before powering up the HR34. Not a perfect solution, but I've found it to work the best of anything else.

Same problem here. If I switch my denon receiver to PS3 and back to the HR34 it will show up. As the other poster said though, power up order and timing matters. The Harmony One remote I have is very powerful, but it is annoyingly difficult to get this right with one button startup. I tried for about an hour to get the stupid remote to do it automatically and couldn't do it. So I just switch inputs when it's greyed.

Shouldn't be that hard to get the Harmony to work. There is a section where you can tell it what order to turn the devices on so you can change that. I'm pretty sure you can also add in a delay in between powering the devices on, but you might have to call tech support to get that added. It's been a while since I've had to mess with programming any of my Harmonys.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
