I use it with my W1070 1080P DLP projector on an 82" screen. I was watching HP4 at 45% and was thinking to myself that it just looked too processed, so I switched it to 40% and I left it like that...

Hi Burt,

I only tried it with the Darbee in place, so I don't know if it would solve other handshake issues (though, I might be inclined to give it a try were I having trouble).

It's actually...

Reporting back about the extender: definitely works.

I'm noticing reduced handshake times (which could be placebo effect) and definitely no problems. The idea that stuck in my head was that it was...

I don't have a universal remote. I just have 3 main remotes (ps3, avr, projector) and a couple others that I use rarely (cable box, darbee). Never quite saw the need for the universal as I don't mind...

I'm using the extender because switching out the longer run will be a large hassle as it's behind a wall and through the ceiling. I'll report back on whether or not the extender works as soon as it...
