I can't read 200+ pages of this thread, but after some study, it's clear that there are issues with HDMI cables and the Darbee.
Will it work in my set up? Has anyone else with a long HDMI run been OK? Any other experience with this cable?
After reading about the Darbee, I'm tempted to try it. Solid Signal has them on an "open box" for $90 less than MSRP. However, it says all sales are final...
Has anyone ordered from them and had a problem? If you have an issue, what do you do?
I ordered through Solid Signal and it was packaged "like new" - - I couldn't tell the difference as I returned a unit to Amazon back in December, 2012 (faulty unit).
All sales are final BUT!!! If the unit is defective, Solid Signal will exchange for a replacement. I think they are a reputable company - - IMHO>
If there are any issues with the length of your run - - look at a Monoprice splitter/amplifier. It's worked wonders for me. I use my Darblet for my BenQ W1080ST projector and Samsung 65" LCD/LED TV. I also run everything through HDMI1 "out" of my Pioneer SC65 receiver. Ever since I acquired the Monoprice splitter - - I've had zero issues with HDMI handshakes - - to either display with Satellite, OPPO 103 Bluray Player and Micca Media Player.
