No way to use it with an antenna direct to the TV, must be an HDMI connection. Connecting the antenna to a Dishnetwork receiver for instance however does allow for using a Darbee with OTA. I do that now.
This Darblet was incredible on Blade Runner bluray, which has some of the most incredible lighting sets ever made. The device just brings out solo much detail given the complexity of textures in this movie... You have to try this reference quality disc!!!
OH.Crap!! Obvious.huh?? But...it is hard to RTFM when there a'int NFM!
Thanks for the heads up..so far ..so good...still have to play around to get to common ground with both me and the wife..FWIW running the DD Directly into the TV =Panny VT3065...oppo 95...denon avr cs 2311..all components ,other than the DD,running thru HDMI in Denon...Can't wait until I have more time to give this horse some hard riding...PQ on VT30 on Directvis stunning without DD...I can see some enhancements at this point in HD and BD...have not tried 3d yet...and of course,way to early to draw conclusions...but I am not,at this point disappointed...
Are you referring to my post #5455?If so,it seems you had no problems with what I was saying in your post #5456,
Relax, just giving you a hard time. It's all in good fun. I honestly had to read your post several times to figure it out though. I still don't understand half of the acronyms but I get the overall point.
I am running the Darbee directly to the TV which is a 65" VT30 (Panasonic)have an Oppo BD95 blu ray player..Using Directv as my video source ...all components are HDMI connected to a Denon CS2311 audio receiver..have a harmony 1100 remote control...
All is perfect...so far!
hope the above is clearer.
www.curtpalme.com for the current Lumagen and Darbee Combo pricings for those who have been sitting on the fence waiting for a deal! The top of the Line Lumagen for a few hundred more than the Mini, and a Darbee thrown in as an enticer! (Plus More Inputs!)
First of my neighbors here to watch Superbowl opening, with mouth literally wide open at the PQ using the Darbee on my 55" LG and Dishnetwork. He keeps turning it on and off in disbelief. He's on my computer ordering one. (with permission from his wife...)
I put mine after the Lumagen: More for convenience and lack of space where my main AV equipment is, however for 2.35:1 lens use there is another good reason to do this:
The vertical stretch comes before the Darbee in my configuration, so the Darbee can act on 1920 x 1080 pixels (even though some of them are upscaled).
If I put the Darbee before the Lumagen then it only has 1920 x 817 pixels to act on, plus this result then gets upscaled by the Lumagen, so 'stretching' the Darbee's effect over a larger area than in my configuration.
It's a pretty subtle difference, but since it was easier for me to put the Darbee below my projector (which means after the Lumagen) then that it seems to work better this way is a happy coincidence.
Well,after playing around with the Darbee for a week.....I found that while I truly like what the device does...I am sending it back to Amazon...3 factory re-sets in week is a bit to much for the price I paid...If,in the future,Darbee offers a unit that performs well,I will consider it...Until then,i have to return it.....I think this is inherent to the unit...unless Darbee offers another unit that fixes this issue that i am unaware of,i feel i have no other choice.
