I have a suspicion that the Darbee might not be giving enough power to run long cables. Try and HDMI extender and see if that works. It means another cable in the chain but it could help.
Others have mentioned a long run >25ft but I'm not sure what gauge they're using. Though I don't know if the gauge makes a difference. If it does, try getting a RedMere cable.
With a brand new unit, I should not have to deal with the CS "dance". I can pack it up and ship it out. The battery is almost certainly not the issue. It can trigger a response from the Niles at 30ft. In any case, it's not a deal breaker, since you can use the buttons on the unit itself.
I have seen posts where people have used long runs and it works OK. HDMI handshake issues are mysterious... My 50 ft. cable is in wall, no way to change it out.
On the Z30K, the effect is pleasing, but with most content, you have to look hard to see it. If I can't get it to work reliably, it's no big deal...
My summary of the unit is in line with others. Nice, but the hardware is not ready for prime time.
If I did not have a DLP PJ, then I might hassle it. I'm willing to fiddle with it a bit more, but if it won't work all the time, then back it goes.
Happy Dad's day to all the AVSers!
