Darbee vision darblet - Page 176

post #5251 of 7863
Had the opportunity to watch the new Total Recall with the darblet installed, and the sound kept dropping out. Is this a know problem, and is there a resolution? I'm starting to believe this little gem is more trouble than it's worth.

Yes, lots of dropout problems reported with the TrueHD track for that movie.  Switch your player to LPCM rather than Bitstream and the problems go away for most people.

Thanks. I'm trying to sort out whether there is an issue with the darblet, the new Sony S590 I bought to make it compatible with my system, or a combination of both. Will try some other BD's.

The problem is a known issue with Total Recall and it affects many players. Your Sony and Darblet are fine.

Has nothing to do with the Darbee, while not everyone, I will say people who go to forums generally know the issue with Total Recall. What else has been a problem for you with the Darbee that makes it more trouble then it is worth?

eek.gif They are using 16 bit now? I don't think I have anything that can do above 12 bit output.

I frequent AVS to investigate issues of interest, answer (as limited as that may be) queries, and ask questions concerning subject matters that may be effecting my system. I'm not sure why those who go to forums would generally know about the Total Recall problem, but, the good news is, now I do.
With reference to the Darbee, as mentioned in post 5208 of this thread I had some problems getting it to work with 2 of 5 hdmi components, but as they were the newer Samsung BD players, I decided to purchase a newer Sony BD which after some color stream adjustments, appeared to be compatible. Regretfully, the Darblet is not just plug & play, and with the sound drop out mentioned on the Total Recall disc, I thought I was again in for some compatibility issues. I hope all will now be well.

Well, after playing with this thing for about a week, I am thinking that this is the best thing since sliced bread.smile.gif
post #5259 of 7863
i dunno, sliced bread is pretty important if you don't have a good bread knife wink.gif But YES, the darblet is pretty damn cool smile.gif

Hopefully you find the solution to the total recall disc... Just in case you haven't, use LPCM instead of bitstream.

Yes, thank you.

Once you have owned one of these for months and have settled in with a setting you leave alone you will realize this is the best display advancement since HD tv first showed up with its outrageous priced plasmas in 2002.I could never watch a film now without my Darbee in place.Bring on Oled or 4 k or whatever,just make sure you use a darbee with it.
post #5264 of 7863
I was skeptical. Just installed mine on a 60" Samsung. Reminds me of the same visual sensation that I get when I put my glasses on. Everything in better focus. Going to need at least one more Darbee for my Projector.

Depending on your set up, you might be able to get by with just a splitter.

I have a monoprice 1x2 powered hdmi splitter http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10113&cs_id=1011306&p_id=8204&seq=1&format=2 on the output of my darbee, it splits to my Sharp LCD/LED tv and Mits HC3800 projector.

60" is in bedroom. Panny in the basement. I like the idea though. I can split the Panny PJ and the bar TV.

Good analogy....
post #5269 of 7863
Looks like mine died yesterday when I got "No Signal" on my projector, so I disconnect the Darbee instead.

Bought in August last year, the latest firmware model.

Is it typical? I understand that the warranty is only 90 days.
post #5270 of 7863
I would check the power supply........
post #5271 of 7863
Power is on since both lights are on (blue and red), and so is the ac adapter. Next is replacing the hdmi cable.

Replaced my 3' HDMI w/ a 6'; it's working fine now.
post #5274 of 7863
Good advice for anyone having signal problems with or without a Darbee - try not to use under 6' HDMI cables.... Glad you solved it.

Way cool on the Lumagen licensing. I guess getting the Darbee and Radiance working together a few months ago paid off. I know several requested this but I honestly didn't foresee it happening, two awesome companies.
post #5278 of 7863
Wow!! I might need to consider replacing my DUO. I'm curious what new products will be shown by Lumagen at CES.
post #5279 of 7863
Well....everyone was hoping they'd get "married" biggrin.gif

Congratulations!!

Why would the length of the cable make a difference? I have 1 meter cable connecting a OPPO 105 to the Darbee and 2 meter HDMI to the display, a 141FD Pioneer, and the Darbee seems to be operating fine.
