Fios and 3D Tv UPDATE 11/26

So I had ordered the ESPN 3D Channel from Fios. It was a problem in itself, as Fios required that I have their hd set top box to receive the channel, and said it would not show on a cable card (which is funny, as all their boxes have an actual cable card in them). I figured this was bogus. However the channel would not turn on till I picked up the set top box and actually plugged it in to the wall. Then magically the channel turned on and was ready for viewing on my Premiere.

However here is the problem. As you can see in the photo iv'e attached the channel is showing up split top and bottom, not one over the other, but actually a split screen. My TV is a brand new Sony HX850, with auto detection of 3D signal. I can go into the settings and have it decode the 3D top/bottom, but then the tivo menus are completely blurry and not viewable.

I remember from this past Olympics, the 3d broadcasts shows up regularly and were just blurry, this being our old TV was not 3D, but the Tivo from what I remember work how I think it should be working now.

Any thoughts ? I really dont want to have to switch the tv every time to view the 3D content, then have to switch back for regular.

Yeah, sorry, this is normal in my (limited) experience. In fact, I have to do this each time:

1. Switch the TiVo to output 720p instead of 1080i.
2. Turn off overscan on the TV.
3. Set the TV to the appropriate 3D mode.

On top of that, half the time ESPN3D doesn't have proper guide data, just "ESPN 3D Programming (see our web site)". I'm just glad I'm not paying for this channel.

The TiVo does not pass the HDMI flag that tells the TV its 3D so you have to do it manually, and switch back manually when you tune to a normal channel. Its a bummer, I got used to it all happening automatically with my DirecTV HRxx boxes
