They never did add a 1:1 HDMI passthrough did they?

They did at some point. I think it's called HDMI Direct in the settings. It works relatively well, but it will drop the PS4's picture from time to time unless you run it through an HDCP stripper first. To my knowledge no update ever fixed this. All the other HDMI sources I've put through it don't have that issue though.

Hi everybody, I'm back on the topic after almost 2 years of having fun with the Framemeister without any issues.

Sadly yesterday a really annoying one appeared though:
Although the XRGB isn't perfectly suited for that, I also used it for playing my PAL GameCube via RGB (COMP as SYNC by Retrogamingcables) as the quality you can get is still better than what my HDTV's internal upscaler produces.

For some reason since I turned it on yesterday after a longer break from playing the GameCube the Framemeister seems to have issues receiving 576i input - the image frequently drops out or gets distorted every 1-2 seconds, often with the audio dropping out as well. I switched off the auto sync to avoid additional dropouts caused by my HDTV getting a new signal every time and had a game and later on just the main menu running to play with the settings, but whatever I did didn't change anything.

I suspected the cable to be broken, but it worked perfectly when plugged into the HDTV directly, so that doesn't seem to be the issue. Furthermore I also tried my PS2 over RGB (= also 576i) this morning (which I usually use via Component) with the exact same issue, so I suspect that the Framemeister might somehow be broken. I've tried my PS1 and Saturn to make sure it's not the Euro Scart to XRGB adapter as well and they ran perfectly fine.

Has anyone ever encountered this issue and might have a solution? Any help is appreciated.

Is the cable specifically designed for the PAL GameCube, with a 75ohm resistor to ground and 220uF capacitor on the Composite video line?

Yes, it's the predecessor of this one (well, I don't know specifically about the resistor and capacitator, sadly): https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/SUP ... CART-CABLE

Retrogamingcables only sells specifically designed cables. It also worked perfectly fine for the last 2 years. What bugs me is that the issue also appears with my PS2 when I run it in 576i via RGB, while PS1 and Saturn work perfectly fine. It doesn't seem connected to the RGB cable :(

In my theory it could either be the Scart to XRGB adapter or the XRGB itself, but it's weird that it only happens with 576i signals. I'll try out with my Dreamcast in a few hours (it's case is currently getting bleached outside in the sun) to see how 480i works.

Recently I purchased an XRGB mini and found that when I run 480i rhythm games on the PS2 for streaming and recording purposes, the notes tremble like a photo, causing blurry problems. In the 240p rhythm game there is no problem. How can I solve this problem?
