Darbee vision darblet - Page 191

Chain is Panasonic DMP BD-30 - Integra DTC 9.8 - Darbee - Epson 6010

The green light is only showing when the power cord is attached, but then ceases to show at one-second intervals as specified.

Did you try this? http://www.avsforum.com/t/1399154/darbee-vision-darblet/4260#post_22497006

No, not yet! Great idea, thanks. I will try that this evening. I spoke to Integra earlier today and they said it was simply an HDCP issue where the 9.8 thinks it might be talking to a recording device (instead of a display device) and so won't consummate the handshake. They also said they would make a note of the product for potential future firmware updates.

any thanks, Tampa8. Double-checked all the things on your list. Unfortunately the only way I can it to work is to slot the Darbee in between my BD player and the Integra, it just won't play ball when it's located outbound from the Integra. Anyway, it works, and as I only use my theater for movies (and not TV or gaming), it's a satisfactory resolution, if not ideal.

You are lucky it is working at all in that configuration. I had to remove the Darbee from the pre amp processor chain altogether. They are incompatible in my system. I purchased a second Darbee for blu ray sources rather than fool around more with the processor . Not ideal for sure but I only have so much time and a fix does not seem to be in the near future. I have a Marantz pre amp processor which is completely by passed.

Right, got it! Thanks, jnabq. I went back to Main Out and, hey presto, Darbee now working outbound from 9.8! (I was using Sub Out as my default because I had troubles last year with picture outages on an aging plasma on Main Out, but I was having control board issues with that monitor.) I'm surprised Integra didn't volunteer this suggestion on my call today.

Well, I am going to monitor the situation closely because I'm inherently skeptical of all things HDMI with pre/pro switching. I may resort to your method if my chain plays up.

I'm good now; I got emails from both Larry and Adam Darbee.

If so, how'd you go about it?

I emailed Larry at Darbee on 3/5 and haven't heard back.

Would this product improve quality on a 720p projector (e.g. Planar PD7150)?

Yes, it does!

Anyone using an Onkyo 905 with the Darblet? Wondering if I´ll have any HDMI issues.
post #5710 of 7863
In an earlier post in this thread someone said they used "HDMI savers from monoprice" to resolve Darblet connections problems. Does anyone know the actual name of these magic devices. I could not find anything like that on Monoprice. Mine will not work with my AVR-2809CI. Yes I have tried all the things suggested.

Never mind. Found them. All they are is angled connectors to make the cables turn corners without stress. Oh well. Hope springs eternal.

No, that isn't what they were discussing, but a similar name. I forget too. "HDMI something or other"... little boxes that force EDID to behave somehow. I didn't bookmark it because mine works fine. I'll see if I can find it...

Given the price of $90 and the fact that the original poster said he bought at least a dozen and put them all over the place, I don't think that is what he was talking about. That device would seem to mostly address HTPC issues.

I am looking for a way to get my darblet to connect to the output of my AVR-2809CI. They just won't talk.

It's probably not in "troubleshooting" because it's not a fault that is generally considered a "trouble". It's an option in the menus, easily found even without reading the manual. I can't remember where it is, but it's in an obvious place... something like configuration? options? settings? something like that...
post #5717 of 7863
You have to go to menu...then to settings and hit the option for turning the logo off.

Calle to Larry Pace at Darbee products and got a response within minutes he took the time to explain and resolve problems.
Nice to deal with a responsive manufacturer.
Kudos Larry Pace and Darbee products. nice to do business with a great retailer.

Solid Signal now has the Darbee DVP-4000 in stock.

Can I hook this up with the SonyHW50ES with a Yamaha Rx-A3020BL and a Oppo BDP-103?

Will Darbee Darblet work with this setup?

HDMI "Out" 2 (Not ARC) from Pioneer SC65 Receiver - to Darbee Darblet - from Darblet (20 foot HDMI 1.4 cable) to BenQ W1080ST projector?

Thx - Rico

I have mine hooked up from HDMI 1 of a Pioneer SC25 -to Darbee- then 29ft HDMI 1.3 cable to JVC RS55. Works fine.

Just a heads up, but when I first connected the Darbee I had an issue with the deep color setting. Turning it off on my BD player solved the issue.

Thanks for the "heads up." I'll be connecting through my Pioneer SC65 receiver (HDMI 2 Out) - that has DirecTv, OPPO 103 and a Media Player - - all with "Deep Color" turned off.

Thanks to the AVS Forum, I learned that the "Deep Color" setting is useless and can add another layer of needless processing.

I tried the Darblet back in December, 2012, with my 65" Samsung TV and there was no difference in the PQ. I already have a razor sharp, uber picture on the LED and this is for my new BenQ W1080ST projector - - which I am immensely enjoying. Nothing like the big screen - period! I just wish the short throw BenQ was an option when I went looking for a TV last summer.

I plan on a short HDMI cable (three feet) from the "HDMI 2" out of my receiver into the Darblet and then a 20 foot HDMI (same cable manufacturer) to my BenQ W1080ST. Hopefully, this will connect o.k. without any HDMI handshake problems.

Thx again - Rico

I have it with my GT50 and I love it. You lost your remote? Check your couches or your doggy doo doo, lol biggrin.gif Want to buy mine? I don't use it because I use my Harmony one with the Darbee.

Yes - I noticed that. I also saw some comments from folks with shorter cables and no problems. I Emailed Darbee (Larry) to see if I can get an answer on this.

Thx - Rico

1M in, 1M out = 2M (6 Feet)

Not sure I follow - - I planned on three feet out (from receiver) to Darblet (In) then 20 feet to projector. No option from Darblet "Out" as that is the distance to my PJ. Only other option is length of cable from receiver to Darblet (In).
