HD-SDI is useful on an L5, since you can feed it a 480p - 1080i HDMI signal easily enough (say for displaying a PC or modern console), but on a 480i display (every PVM other than an L5) it's kind of useless because it's either difficult or pointless to get 240p or 480i HDMI output. Like, an OSSC in passthrough would do it, but why would you do RGB -> OSSC -> HDMI -> SDI -> PVM when you could just do RGB -> PVM?


This is what I had figured (although you explained it much better!). The only use I thought I might have had was the HDMI output from a Raspberry Pi that I have a bunch of emulators on, however it seems like it's cheap and easy to add RGB Scart to the Raspberry Pi, which is better anyway because it will allow Scanlines to be added by the OSSC.

You probably shouldn't need to add scanlines to 480i on the PVM L5. I've run arcade boards on mine and they look fine.

It's a 20M4E, so I'll give it a shot although the natural scanlines will probably be good.

Quick question on the 14n2u: does anyone know what service menu setting I'd need to adjust the overscan? It's cutting off a bit of information on the sides of the screen. I was able to get my geometry and centering issues taken care of, but that one is vexing me.

I believe on my Sonys it's H size and V size in the geometry settings.

Anyone know the model names of some big 480/576i 29-40 inch consumer CRT's with component and or SCART inputs? I love my 20 inch Phillips, but I also want to get something more big and when I google 30-40 inch CRT I mainly get HDCRT's.

This TV is a stock photo of a shipment that should arrive tomorrow.

I will be receiving 2 of them and plan on selling one of them because one is already enough.

The Mitsubishi Megaview XC3725C will be fun to work with.

It all started with a PM from SNK NEO GEO.

I have no idea how to get a VGA converter for this thing but I'm still super stoked

The XC3725C doesn't do 15KHz, does it?
