Ive had the original Darbee (until power supply failed) and now I use the 2019 Nvidia Shield Pro that has an upscaling setting that seems very much like the picture I was getting using the Darbee.

Apologies if this was answered somewhere in the last 519 pages, but was hoping someone could help me make up my mind...

What are the major differences between the 2nd gen DarbeeVision Darbee DVP-5000S and 1st gen DVP-5000?

If I can get the DVP-5000S for say $150 right now vs. $30 for the older 1st gen 5000 version, which would you go with? Is there a noticeable difference worthy of extra cost?

Cheers!

There should really be no difference in the image quality improvement provided by either the original model and newer one. The differences are mainly centered around vastly improved cosmetic and build quality provided by the newer model. Not to mention, that the 5000S will be running on later issued firmware ... which could provide some improvements in HDMI handshake performance. The other major plus for the new model is the improved power supply... whereas the older model suffered from early failures of its external "wall wart" power supply .... and at times the original 5000 would randomly reset itself back to its factory default settings and require you to adjust it back to your selected settings. It's a bit of tough choice as a $30 price for a "properly working" 5000 is a great deal, but I myself would spring for the 5000s to virtually remove any future glitchy headaches..

Does anyone know if the 5000 remote works with the 5000s?
I don't know if the 5000 remote works on 5000s, but Harmony has the 5000s it in their database, so you could control it with a $50 Harmony 665. Probably not worth buying a Harmony just for that, but Harmony remotes can be life-changing in a good way depending on your system (I couldn't imagine running a projector without one).

Why don't you just keep it, you'll still need it for the 1080 programs, which basically all sat/cable systems.
I bought it to use with my Panasonic plasma, and it made a pretty remarkable difference on every source used on it. On my Sansung QLED, it doesnt really make much of a difference on 1080P material, and I really dont view much non UHD content. I could keep it but I really dont need it honestly. I'd prefer to sell it and I'd cut someone a fairly generous deal on it. If I dont get a buyer, I'll keep it and probably forget it's even hooked up to my TV lol.

I find it beneficial in my system which is connected to the output of my Inteqra providing for service on everything 1080i/p and below. (connected to one input of my 8K Samsung TV)
I have another TV's input connected to my Oppo UHD player that services shiny UBD / BD / DVD disks.
