Hi Paul, Just in case you did not receive my answer to your PM folder. Here is the answer to your questions.
It works fine with this connection I did:-
Samsung 3D player HDMI out to Darbee Darblet 5000 input, using 6 feet long Mono Price HDMI cable, then Darbee out directly to Sony HW40ES projector HDMI 1 input using 40 feet long Redmere active High speed HDMI Cable (also bought from Mono Price). Darbee setting is 75 to see distinctive contrast improvement, with Sony's Reality Creation turn ON. I found the picture jerks even the MotionFlow is off. It is not the problem of the Sony projector, nor the Darbee, but the Samsung player itself. When I used the Oppo 83 (non 3D) player, picture jerking disappeared. Therefore, I remove the Darbee from the linkage and use the Samsung 3d player just for 3D viewing.
Now I have the Darbee is linked between the HDMI 2 input of the Sony and a "HDMI selector" which has 4 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out.
This is the present connection. It works perfectly with ordinary HDMI cables for my other AV gears through the HDMI selector . Here is the present set up:-
Oppo 83 blue ray player, Laptop input, DVD player (DVI output to HDMI adaptor) and Analog to HDMI convertor (for VCR and LD Player) to the "HDMI Selector" 4 input ports with Mono price ordinary 6 feet HDMI Cables - then the Selector's output is linked to the Darbee with another 6 ft ordinary Mono price HDMI cable- btw the Darbee out to Sony HDMI 2 input port is a 35 ft long old hdmi cable which has been using with my former (non 3D) projector in past 8 years.
You see...........it is quite a lot of connections with the Darbee. But it works fine with ordinary HDMI cables for non-3D viewing. I keep this connection mainly because I use my Oppo 83 for non-3D blue ray disc viewing. The PQ of the Oppo 83 is much better than my new Samsung 3D player.
Hope you understand what I wrote. and feel comfortable to buy a Darbee Darblet 5000 which is a good video processor for both 2D and 3D. Happy viewing.
