Can you give us the model of your receiver? Do you know if your receiver is "3d compliant" basically meaning that its advertised as 3d ready? 3d is tricky when its not going directly to the 3d source. I know I cant put a 3d bluray into my bluray player until after my 3d projector is turned on otherwise it doesnt "detect" a 3d source.
I am having a weird problem. I just got a 60" LED 3D Samsung HDTV, and it works great for playing back 3d content straight through it's built in software. I have my PS3/Xbox 360 hooked up through a Samsung receiver with HDMI in so that it can get the audio from the HDMI cables, then I just have one HDMI cable going from the receiver to the TV.
What is frustrating though is every time the PS3 tries to play 3d content, it won't initially get a source through the receiver, it will say it has no input. I figured out a quick fix though, but it is kind of annoying. As soon as the PS3 asks to do 3D mode for a game I say yes, then it doesn't display- unplug the HDMI cable from the PS3 and hook it straight to the TV without going through the receiver- then I get the 3D picture, and all I have to do is hook the cables back up the way they were through the receiver and it will work as long as I leave everything on.
If I try to do any 3D content withough unplugging cables after everything is off it doesn't work though. I thought initially it was old version HDMI cables, but I just bought brand new category 2 cables and it is still having the same problem.

I have a samsung av-r730. It detects a 3d source through it but when it goes to make the image 3D it will either drop the video output to the tv, or the tv will say it is 3D, but it won't be- the glasses will just look dark through the right eye.
