The 3D video you're watching may not be "full" 1080p 3D. Athough some formats are known to be able to pass through, most will not on the 2309 as it is only HDMI 1.3. Games which are generally only 720p will pass easily as will cable/sat 3D as neither is full 1080p 3D.
There are several ways to listen to your iPod while watching TV ...
(1) Connect the ipod to the VCR analog inputs and while watching TV, change the INPUT MODE setting to "analog" vice "Auto." This only works for the ipod of course.
(2) Connect the HDMI cable from the cable box to the TV with an optical cable to the 2309. This option allows you to listen to any source connected to the 2309 while watching TV.
(3) Connect a component video cable and optical cable from the cable box to the 2309 (instead of HDMI). Then with the iPod selected, change the Video Select setting to the source name you are using for the cable box (ie. this feature will not work with HDMI video sources).
