-If you were to buy a used Darbee how would you K of if it's been updated/upgraded to the latest software/firmware?
-in my setup all of my A/V equipment is in one rack at the back of the room so I could either put the Darbee on the stand in the back of the room next to my processor with as short as a 1 foot HDMI cable and or a longer one wound up (read that at least 6' HDMI is desirable) and then run the Darbee to my JVC projector through a nearly 20' HDMI cable, or I could put the Darbee next to my projector on the ceiling inside my projector cabinet (would rather not do this as it'd be more difficult to access the Darbee)
-I use primarily all HD content. I'd say 75% PS4/PS3/Xbox1, 20% Blu Ray movies, 5% Netflix streaming. Would I presumably be switching Darbee settings between my 3 primary video sources or seeing as they're all HD (minus some of the non HD Netflix material) would I be likely OK leaving the Darbee at the same setting all the time.
- I have had my two Darblets for over a year, and there have been no opdates, so this has been a non-issue to date.
- The menu screen displays the firmware version.
- It should not matter if you place the Darblet close to your equipment rack, or close to the projector. I have done both, and never noticed any difference. Of course, you need to be able to point the remote control at the Darblet, so make sure you have a line of sight, or use an IR extender.
- I set the Darblet and forget it (I use HD 60% for everything). Whether you find it useful to tweak the settings per source is a personal preference thing.
