So I got my Darbee a couple days ago, but ran into a bit of trouble last night. I've got it hooked up between my AVM50V and Planar 8150, and have all my sources (Xbox 360, SageTV HD300, Pioneer 51FD) hooked to the 50V, all via HDMI. The first night things seemed "OK" with the Xbox and HD300, but then last night I went to try the 51FD, and found it "flips out" with the Darbee in the loop. What I mean is it seems there's some sort of handshaking issue because the output just cycles on/off continuously.
Also the quotes around the OK are because I've had some random issues with, I wouldn't call it sparkles, but I'll call it wrong colors displayed in parts of the screen. Now that started with the addition of the 50V, but the Darbee seems to exacerbate it.
So what do you think, I'm leaning to an HDMI cable issue. I'm running a 50' 22AWG Monoprice cable which is no longer necessary since I rearranged my equipment, but has always worked up to 1080p60. I've been debating about getting something more reasonable, like 25', but I was halfway waiting for Monoprice to release their Redmere cables. Though my other though was to just get a BJC Series FE or Series 1 cable...
