I received and installed the Darbee in my system last night and after a few glitches(confused input and output ports), i got things working and settled on Game mode at 55% so far when i watched the VP debates and streaming Prometheus today from VUDU. The picture was sharp. I tried HD mode but with picture motion and sitting 14-ft away from my 60" plasma TV, it was tough to see the changes. With Game mode at 50% - 55%, the visuals are good, maybe a tad too sharp for now.
My chain is Oppo95 + Moxi DVR ---> Anthem D2v ----> Darbee -----> Pioneer PRO-151 FD
I often loose video and get a black/blank screen when i turn off and on my Anthem pre-pro or when i switch to another HDMI input. I have to do a 'silly dance' which involves toggling multiple HDMI inputs back and forth until a picture shows. Most times i get audio and sometimes i loose it. What to do??? MY system is HDMI 1.3 compliant so no ARC channels involved.
I have an EQ'd 50-ft Redmere cable and tried installing the Darblet at the TV side and at the source side with similar results.
