I have the same issues and have had my darblet since it first went on sale.I think its just a poor design . I had all kinds of hopes for a 4K unit and preferably built into a new Oppo but both seem doubtful now.

That's great news. I'm a big fan of the Darblet, and looking forward to the 4k compatible version.

Awesome News Indeed!
Wonder how long before it rolls out though...hmmm...
IIRC, early April for new stock of the 1080 product has come and gone, c'mon Darbee, some of us have been patiently waiting for you to:

Actually, I love tube amps..
I play guitars through them.

Finally I emailed Darbee support and a contact there named Austin sent me a pair of new remotes. This was over the last month so someone is still there. Anyway, the remotes did not solve the problem, the units still don't respond but they do function otherwise by using the manual buttons. I recently upgraded much of my system but this problem started before the new equipment and still persists. Every so often, when using my Harmony remote one of the units will reset itself to full-pop mode and I have to reset it manually.
The same thing happened to my Darblet. Neither its original remote nor my Harmony Elite will control it. Are you saying your Harmony works to control either Darblet? Because I infer it's the IR receivers on our Darblets that have failed.

Do you guys frequently change the Darblet settings? On my two units, I set it and forget it. As long as the front panel controls still work, I could limp along until the new Darblet becomes available. If I were in the habit of changing settings frequently, I could see the IR failure as a big deal.

Nah. In fact, mine is behind an opaque cabinet door. The only time I need to tweak it is when it forgets its settings.

It's an indication of how cheaply made the Darblet is. Lucky it doesn't need to be tweaked often. If it were a TV or AVR which stopped responding to IR, it would be a much bigger deal.

I agree. My Darblet occasionally resets itself to factory defaults, which requires me to restore the desired settings. A PITA that I hope goes away with a new unit.
