This is unknown. The DirecTV 3D programs are using the SBS (side-by-side) format (which is not a "standard" HDMI 1.4 format). Until the User Manual becomes available (it is not, currently), we won't know which 3D formats are supported. The external Optoma 3D-XL box is supposed to support that format, but we don't know if Acer will provide that support.

Again, until the manual becomes available, we won't know what features will be provided. My guess is that the "3D depth" adjustment will not be provided (but that is unknown at this time). Acer is not in the habit of including a lot of "bells & whistles" in their low cost PJs (or any of their PJs, for that matter).kopkiwi
) -- You might want to look at the Panasonic, 3D capable, BD players. Most of those (I think) have dual HDMI 1.4 outputs. That should be the least expensive alternative (one output to the PJ and one to your existing AVR) for you.EDIT
: I'm surprised about the cost of 3D AVRs in NZ. Except for the very cheapest AVRs, almost all of the low end AVRs are now HDMI 1.4a, 3D capable (in the under $800 USD category).
