"decision"...more like "omission" or "error".

I don't have a new Harmony, I've considered it, but I'm a bit too addicted to buttons, the new remotes don't have many. Using a PS4 controller fine...

The new Harmonys have Bluetooth and can't power on/off PS4, but you're right, no IR adapter.


It's clearly capable of lossless + 3D (DTS-HD + 3D works fine), seems like a bug to me...

Oh. I just bought one of those adapter things and I use my Harmony. When spending thousands on a home theater, what's another $25? :p

I ended up returning the S5500. The only benefit over the PS3 is the ability to play simultaneous Dolby True HD & 3D. I really wish Sony would have fixed that PS3 bug. I'll grab a PS4 when the...

I have my Darbee at 45% on my 136" 2.35:1 screen with a JVC RS46 projector and love it. Anything less I can't see what it's doing. For me it gives the image a bit more 'pop' and makes it seem as if...

I was certain I was going to return my Darbee. Lots of snake-oil in the entire 'adder device' market. At first I wasn't seeing much benefit but then I left it on and forgot...

So the only thing I said that was "wrong" was the omission of "up to 1080" which I thought was pretty obvious. :p

I guess I never asked if he was sending his SNES through the Darbee, but we all...

Reasoning that most people who spend $500+ on a Blu-ray player likely stepped up from another or have a PS3/PS4/XBONE is not a stretch. :p

5500 if you don't stream all the time. If your really big into streaming, the 6500 has a bit more power (zero difference in Blu-ray playback).

Quality is identical, see link in sig.

The Darbee sends up to 1080 out and only accepts up to 1080 in. If your TV or receiver up-scaled it to 4K, I'm sure it'd work. But you'd be upscaling a modified...Darbee-fied...image.

My gear is in a different room. Also, the volume of the movie is easily louder than a tiny fan. ;)

I'm looking purely from a PQ standpoint.

If that's true, then I expect to see an improvement with the S6500 over the S5500. Either that or the PS4 is WORSE than the PS3....or of course, its psychological. :D

Sometime this weekend, I plan to compare a disc or two on the PS3, S5500 & S6500. I want to know if the S6500 is actually better also.
