Any word when other providers will launch the channel? Particularly Comcast in my case... Thanks

Welcome 3net.

Aside from having the DTV online guide populate properly, the broadcasts themselves are great. A tremendous addition to DTV's 3D broadcasts.

Here is the link to DTV's 3D page:

http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/conten...oternavtype=-1


They are very slow to update information. You might ask them to list some of your programs in their "Upcoming in 3D" section of the page.

Same question as earlier poster, except for me Time Warner. I don't see any mention of Time Warner picking up the station anywhere, and I spoke with someone at Time Warner and they just gave me a canned it's not available but they'll submit a request to their programming department. I also haven't seen any mention of any kind of exclusivity, but with no information about other carriers, it's hard to tell if this is another kind of ridiculous exclusivity thing. The 3D community already has enough of that

All I can say is great job. I've watched 3 of the programs and the 3D effects are by far the best I've seen so far. China Revealed looked amazing, with very little ghosting. Walking on the moon did have some ghosting but overall was beautiful to behold.

Welcome 3net. I love the channel so far. Please consider showing some 3-D feature films in Sony's library, especially the Columbia Pictures classic 3-D movies (some of which are currently on PPV via Sony's online platforms).

Dang.. And I decided I was to tired and it was Valentine's Day evening, which had some obligations associated with it.

I am kicking myself now, but I actually let the Direct TV installers hook up via component and it's a fair amount of work to change it to HDMI + adding the adapter for the Mistu DLP.

Sounds really freaking cool. I gotta get this hooked up ASAP.

3net,

I just checked your web page which is pretty bare bones at this point. When do you see it expanding with more information about programming?

Sunday night got that message, rebooted and it worked on the fly. Last night got it again, (did not feel like rebooting again) went online and scheduled a show for the next hour. that worked.

Tonight, tried on the fly again and got the error. Tried re-authorizing online, still no go. I am trying a future recording through the scheduler (not online), will see if that works.

The authorization thing sucks. Mine is an HR22, maybe that's the problem. Love the channel, though.

Update: The future recording from the scheduler worked so it looks like anything future (web or scheduler works) for those having this issue.

Fantastic channel. Excellent 3D and I can't stop thinking about ghost labs for some reason. That may be the first paranormal show I could believe in, pretty cool stuff! Very nice job Sony, IMAX and Discovery. The quality and a good amount of content is great start. Thank for not making feel like I wasted my money on investing in 3D, this totally makes it worth the investment.

Saw the Magnificent Desolation show last night, and aside from the gimmicky 3D pics overlaid on stock archive footage and the re-enactments, it was a good experience. The China Revealed documentary, however, was where 3D really shone. Not to mention the April Lavigne video!
Looking forward to the upcoming content! The Short Cuts are an excellent touch.

OK, so I hooked up the adapter as instructed by Direct TV support. and I still can't get channel 107 to acknowledge I have a 3D supported display.


Anything else I need to do here?

I had posted here that I was not getting 3Dnet. Then I punched in 107(guide was NOT showing that channel) and 107 appeared. But the guide still did not show 107. I reauthorized, reset, etc. Nothing worked.

Called D* today and after speaking with two reps with no results, I remembered something...and here's the tip:

I went into change channels in the guide menu, which I had not done in years, because I had my settings to "All channels I get". I then when to "edit" my channels in the guide, scrolled down to 106 AND right below it was 107, scrolled down to 107 and pressed the select button. Then went back to the guide and 107 was now part of the guide. Also, I can now record programs from 107(3Dnet).

Usually when you have selected "All the channels I get", new channels offered by D* show up in the guide automatically, but not always.

Checked out my recording of Ghost Lab. A little depth, but mostly a Paper-Mario-esque look to the people that I don't like, so I doubt I'll watch the rest any time soon.

Blu Ray... 3-D TV... 4K... I Like New STUFF!!!

Content is pretty weak too. Some wind blows and then they go on & on about it. Maybe if I were a teenager, with my friends, and we we're drinking, in a dark field, watching 3D........, then maybe it would be entertaining.

There's a reason the show was cancelled. I find humor in Ghost Adventures, but this show was just plain dull, and 3D doesn't help.

Thanks, I think your on to the answer. I am definetly set to all channels I get and I have had to go manually change it when Direct TV has made programing changes in the past. I should of thought of that myself.

Well, they just went 24/7 with xfinity 3D, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

We appreciate the comments and look to you all to give us guidance on how to make the in-home 3D from 3net a better experience overall. Thanks Ken H for reaching out as well. We're fortunate to have three companies involved in the 3D space who all have participated in helping us craft a set of guidelines that we utilize in everything we do. On both our originals and acquired titles we spend countless hours re-doing shots and correcting in the Pablo to make certain each shot is as perfect in stereo as possible given that native footage.

As for other cable and sat providers, we're in active discussions with everyone. On the content front, look for a big announcement regarding new content coming for March - both in long-form and short-form.

Remember that the first shows you've seen were initiated a while back - since that time, technology has improved, our production companies are more experienced and we've worked hard internally to perfect things. In short, it only gets better.

Our CEO reads the AVS forums on regular basis, and we discussed comments from this thread earlier today. Ken - we should talk offline about bringing him into this forum or making something happen in real time.
