I have a denon 1610 and its setup with my ps3,and my cox dvr connected to it via hdmi and then hdmi out to my samsung d8000. For some reason when I play or watch 3D on my Ps3 it doesnt seem like 3D, is the denon 1610 capable of transfering a 3D signal to the tv from the ps3 or cox dvr?
The 1610 uses HDMI 1.3a, I believe you need the newer HDMI 1.4 standard in order to pass 3D from the ps3 through the avr to your tv. A work around would be to connect the ps3 directly to the tv and then use a optical/toslink cable from the tv to your 1610 for audio. You wont get hi-def audio, but standard dolby surround or dts should work.
I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!
As noted, the XX10 models are only HDMI 1.3, the HDMI 1.4/3D models beginning with the XX11 models. Connect the PS3 (HDMI) to the TV directly with PS3 (optical) to the 1610 for the higher bitrate DD/DTS on BDs which will likely be indistinguishable from the HD audio over HDMI. Also note, that as the PS3 cannot pass Dolby TrueHD with 3D video, you may want to consider a used dual HDMI 1.4 BDP (eg. Panasonic BDP-310) which will pass 3D video to the TV and the HD audio to the 1610.
There's no such thing as HDMI 1.4 cable (mfr's simply rebranded the same cables to get you to buy new cables when upgrading to a 3D TV) ... it's either High Speed (1080p) or Standard Speed (1080i/720p). The same High Speed "HDMI 1.3" cables used when you bought the 1610 will work with 3D video.
