Yes, You Can Record and Play Back 3D
HD Guru Gary Merson is successful with both cable (with TiVo) and satellite (DirecTV DVRs).

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.
