And therefore there is no way possible to use a Haupauge HD-PVR for FHD Blu-ray 3D content.
Ok, thanks for clarifying your comment.
I know for a fact HDMI is not the only way to transmit a 3D signal, at least in field sequential format, as I've worked with that on RGBHV for over a decade. My guess is that side by side or top and bottom 3D would be the same. I don't know for sure about the 3D signal on component video out of a Comcast HD box in side by side, when The Masters 3D broadcast is on the air, but I will know very soon.
Further, I'm not knowledgeable at all about how the 3D formats used for HDTV would be affected by what the Hauppauge does when it records and then outputs the signal. You may well be right about this, but I think until someone tries it, it's an unknown. I hope we have someone who can try for The Masters.
