@ lyris - imo, they shouldn't use those examples from the site, it could leave some with the wrong impression. I've spent time photographing the difference with the darby on/off and also with JVC's e-shift on/off from my RS55. I'll post these closeups soon so others can get a basic idea of what's going on with this device.
When used in moderation, this processor has a great impact on the perceived sharpness and depth of the image. I have a 142" 16:9 and it works especially well combined with JVC's e-shift. They both perform different kinds of image enhancement and one would think these 2 different technologies were designed for each other.
it's hard to resist for the low cost, I just ordered a 2nd one from AVS to use in a different room.
I've also just gotten my D back for the FW upgrade--very prompt and efficient service!
However I'm not sure the 'color space problem' has been solved. E.g., if I send it 422 or 444 from my Radiance, the pic ((on a Sony1000ES) has the usual screwed up color that is typical when the color spaces don't match. If I output RGB from the Radiance to the D, then the colors look just right.
So it seems to me--unless I'm doing something stupid (which is still a good bet)--that the Darblet is still only able to receive RGB and pass it correctly.
