From what I understand, it will playback provided everything is proper HD and capable. For example, DirecTv 3D content will do this and I didn't have to change my HD Receiver to do so.

Just curious, but if I record a show, say the World Cup, in 3D on my DVR, does it play back in 3D? Do I need a 3D DVR for that? Not really sure how that technology works.

MOST 3d IS IN BLUERAY FORMAT SO NO
You sure can, although it may vary according to provider. I personally have enjoyed some 3D DVR DirecTV content and it it was as easy to watch has HD DVR content.
If you're a serious IT guy, then you may even discover how to personally back up your 3D DVR footage on a Blu-Ray disc using a PC. There is already good information and some tutorials on-line concerning how to do it. I may be cheesy 3D industry guy, but one day I will enjoy showing my grand-kids what the very first american 3D live broadcast looked like for a good laugh. We'll probably be at 4K 3D in homes by then. lol
I have been looking for a way to backup my DirecTV 3D DVR Recordings but no luck. Can you link me to a site? Thanks.
Nice stuff for my research writing.Wonderful post! This is very useful to many readers like me.
Being a student, I am requiring myself to read articles more often and your writing just caught my interest.

Thank you so much!
I can address Directv. You need to have a DVR HR21 or higher to view 3D (the older HR20 will record 3D but not play it unless it's on a DVR network and then another DVR can access the 3D recording). If you have a 3D capable DVR, it can record and play 3D, but Directv uses a different 3D standard compared to BD players. BD players provide "full HD 3D" which provides a 1080x1920 pixel image to both eyes. Directv uses a compressed form of 3D which only provides resolutions of 1080x960 pixels but you may not notice this reduction. It allows them to send a 3D picture using the same digital bandwidth as a 2D at the cost of picture quality. 3D is only available using the HDMI output of a DVR, and you need a 3D capable display connected this way. At this time, Directv has three 3D channels, including a pay channel which carries recently released 3D feature movies. The other channels are free right now, but have limited 3D content.
