Just got a new Toshiba 55TL515U TV and is not auto detecting the 3D signal information from my DirecTV box (HR24 HD DVR). I have it connected with a High Speed v1.4 HDMI cable.
When I switch to one of the DirecTV 3D channels, I see a side by side image and I have to manually select the 3D mode (2D->3D or 3D) and format (SBS or TAB) before I can watch in 3D. Once I do that, the 3D looks great! However, switching back to a non-3D channel requires a similar process to get the TV back into 2D mode. I also cannot watch a 3D channel in 2D because of this.
I also have a new Samsung Blu-ray player hooked up to my TV with a v1.4 HDMI cable. None of these issues exist going through the Blu-ray. The TV auto detects either a 2D or 3D signal from the Samsung and automatically switches the TV to that mode/format. I can also watch the Blu-ray 3D movie in 2D.
I've checked every setting I can find on the TV, I've swapped HDMI cables to make sure that wasn't the problem. I have spent the last 5 days pouring over my manual and the internet and can't find anything wrong with my setup and all of the applicable settings appear to be set correctly in the DVR and TV.
Anyone know if there is a problem with the 3D information coming from the DirecTV box? It doesn't seem to be the TV because it works great with Blu-ray...??
