Not sure I could do the postage return things as I'm in Canada. A bit apprehensive to purchase from the US and not even sure they would ship here. Then there's Canadian to US money conversion cost and duty/brokerage fees to consider if they do ship up here and use anything other than USPS. Even then Duty/brokerage fee may be an issue. There is a place in Montreal that sells the device. I am considering buying it and trying with the worse case waiting until the new TV arrives.
As for the 2nd part, I stream to the Samsung LED TV via ethernet, with no Oppo or anything in the middle. Would there be some device or something I could plug the ethernet into and then use it to stream to the TV via the Darbee? Something not nearly as expensive as another Oppo.
If the 2nd part is possible I'd probably get the cobalt and when I get the new TV get the Darblet as the new TV would have 3D.
