I am upgrading to 3D tv in my living room.My receiver is Pioneer LX82.Do I need a new 3D receiver for my 3D TV?

 

Also I will move my current TV to my kitchen and get multiroom from Sky tv(I have  1TB box and  Sky HD.)I don't actually record much so can I use a 250/500 GB Sky box?

RE: 3D TV.

If your only viewing 3D content from your sky box, then no you will not need a new AVR, sky's lower res. should pass through and the 5.1 is only Dolby digital not HD which also sent via optical or coaxial. If you want to add a Blu ray player, you could always buy one with analogue outs and let the player decode the audio and send the HDMI picture direct to TV or buy something like the Panasonic BDT310 with twin HDMIs out.

3D is not an upgrade, it is a waste of money IMHO.
