Over on our sister Web site, someone asks about recording 3D content:

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.

We turned to HD Guru Gary Merson, who tells us that yes indeed you can record 3D content to a DVR and play it back in all its 3D glory:

I have successfully recorded the Masters in 3D on my Cablevision-supplied Scientific Atlanta (Cisco) HD set-top cable box and a TiVo Premiere. I have also recorded a number of World Cup games in 3D on the DirecTV HR22 and HR24 DVRs.

All broadcasts were in side-by-side 1080i providing 960 x 1080 resolution per eye.
