I have now owned the Darbee DVP5000 since last August. It is in the signal chain Oppo 103 >> Denon 4311ci >> Darbee >> Sharp 70" Aquos display. Once you own one of these and appreciate the "lifting of the veil" that is done by the Darbee you will not want to go back and watch your TV shows or blu-rays without it. I'm glad to see Dr. Darbee is now making headway with getting OEMs to start using it in their products.
I actually have my Darbee on the back of my 70". The Darbee is situated with the IR receiver facing the front wall and I am able to control the Darbee with my Harmony One without the use of an IR emitter.
Thanks, GSR and JazzGuyy. It's not a big deal, since we aren't likely to see much native 4K content for a while. It would be nice to use the upconversion in the Oppo rather than the display, but without 2.0 I would rather let the display do the conversion.
The players are designed for upscaling to 4K, not playing back true 4K media. For this reason there will not be a refresh that will allow for 4Kx2K at 60Hz. This is a hardware limitation and is not something that we can just enable through firmware.
