I am looking to record 3D media from Direct TV signal or Direct TV DVR. The Magnavox MDR557H does not have an HDMI input (only output) so I am wondering if I need something else like a Denon receiver with 3D pass through to record 3D content. Thanks in advance, Goldhawk.

A receiver won't help. According to the MDR557H manual, it only has coax, video, and s-video inputs. These won't support HD (1080i), which is what carriers like DirecTV and Dish use to send out their SBS (side by side) 3D programming. Try setting your DirecTV receiver to output only 480i or 480p and watching 3D content, and you'll see what I mean. I believe you need an HD-capable recorder if such a thing exists.
