Recvr is HR24 -200 so I assume it is 3D capable. Whenever I try to tune to ch 103, the HR24 gives a message that says my TV is not 3d Ready. But it is, its a Panasonic 50ST30 and I can play Bluray 3d as well as 1/2 sbs and 1/2 u/d sbs .

a) What is the 3D format from DirecTV .......1/2 SBS ?

b) Can this be because the HDMI out from the HR24 is routed thru my NR3007 Onkyo Rcvr to the TV and the Onkyo is not 3D ready?

Any suggestions?

Tks

Unfortunately my TV has only 2 HDMI inputs. One used for Bluray Player, the other for the Onkyo .

Can I use a HDMI switch like this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049S6ZUS/ref=cm_cr_mts_prod_img?tag=5336055023-20

Input to HDMI switch will be Onkyo Rcvr and HR24. Will use digital coax for audio between Hr24 and Onkyo ( no more unused optical inputs)
1. Why do you have the Onkyo connected to the TV?
2. Why don't you have the Blu Ray player connected to the Onkyo?

Yes, it will. Do you have other things connected to the onkyo?

Anything that can go directly to the TV via a different input?

Don't you have a third hdmi input on the side?

Unfortunately no more HDMI inputs , just the 2 .

Other components connected to the Onkyo via HDMI are : Oppo DVD player, WDTV Live media streamer and Toshiba HD DVD player .

Panasonic Bluray player is connected directly to TV via HDMI with Audio Return via Toslink to the Onkyo as indicated in my previous postings.

Currently the HR 24 is connected to the Onkyo via HDMI

The HR24 is also connected directly to the TV via component video and analog audio because my wife can't stand the time it takes for all the handshaking between Onkyo, TV and HR24 before a picture is presented. She wants instantaneous response so for her viewing she uses the TV speakers.

I am even surprised that I use this mode when watching non movie programs ! I only use the full HT theater when I watch movies.

Weird, according to the product description there's a third hdmi on the side.

With all those components and two 3d devices, it looks like a splitter is your only option.

Check monoprice too.
