Were you using default settings on the Framemeister, or did you tweak things (besides scaliness)?

Hi guys.

I'm getting jailbar noise in my N64 signal.

Image

It's a PAL N64RGB (Tim) modded console. Component track has been cutted.
I'm outputting signal through an RGB SCART Csync cable from Retro Gaming Cables (good quality) into XRGB.

Here's the installation. Any clue?

Image

Edit: NVM, Tim edited the guide in 2017 with the wire-to-screw step :x I missed it back in the day, thats why its carrying those jailbars.

Hey all. I dunno how many people still use the Framemeister for streaming, now that we have the RetroTINK and OSSC, but I found a solution for the green boost when using RGB output (I can't get AUTO/YCbCr to "stick" when connected to my AVerMedia Live Gamer 4K). Basically, the Framemeister is using the wrong color space in RGB mode, so you need to apply a LUT in OBS to correct it:

The results (uncorrected on left, corrected on right):

Unfortunately, this won't fix the image you see on your TV/monitor (unless you play in OBS's preview window for some reason), but for setups like mine that split the video to a separate RGB CRT it's not really an issue.

Did we have tests with different PS1 models on the Mini yet ? RGB32E, yours didn't work, right ? Did you have to chance to test it with an additional stripper yet or a mod to S-Video Luminance instead of composite video ?

Anyway, PS2 with Scart works fine on the Mini. You even eliminate all the noise that's present when using a component cable instead.


One of my PS1 systems doesn't display without processing the composite video first (X-SYNC1 fixed it). However, using the same cable with a PS2 works just fine connected to the mini (via the included adapter).

The "High Grade" Hori D-Terminal cable produces some noise in the picture, so using a component cable doesn't guarantee there'll be no noise. I've had the opposite experience from you... RGB -> no noise, Component -> some noise.

YMMV!

Do you want to sell your X-Sync1 by any chance?

Don't know if there is a better site/forum for help with the Framemeister, but if you know of one please direct me.

Got a new Framemeister and noticing that my US PS2 connected via component to the Framemeister and then to my LG TV is suffering from what I'd describe as massive, sporadic flickering. It's behaving like there's an intermittent connection or a refresh problem. PS2 -> LG TV direct with component works just fine. Tweaked all sorts of settings on the Framemeister including sync, picture modes, just about everything and it's still there. Have not tried other component connections at this time. Searching the 'net and I can't find anyone else with these symptoms. Framemesiter runs latest 2.04 firmware. S-video source (N64) seems to be fine.

Has anyone heard of this before? Any recommendations?

Not sure it's a good lead but is your PS2 PAL by any chance?

No, it's NTSC (US model).

Hi all, long time lurker, recently encountered an issue and posting here to see if anyone can help.

I just bought a second hand framemeister and have a big problem with it. Most games seem to run fine - which is great -, but Silent Hill 2 (PAL) doesn't.

In a large squared area of the screen (going from the top-right corner to a bit beyond the centre), the image is significantly blurrier than the rest of the screen (I wonder if it only crops up on this game because of the noise effect...).

In the picture below you should see the effect, with the image blurry on the right and fine on the left. (Sorry for low quality shot, I don't have a capture card).

It's as if a blur filter is being added, but only to like 40% of the screen. This happens in all image modes (even those that use lpf at a minimum).

Any idea what might be causing this? Could it be the framemeister lpf is broken? Is this expectable behaviour for it somehow?

I'm thinking of asking a refund :( So any help is welcome, thanks!

Hey guys.

Is there a sharp profile for original Wii to use on 1080p scaling from its 480p signal? Maybe some 2x or 2.5x? I think there's no Wii profile from FBX?

Thanks in advance!

Hello i'm a newbie looking for advice please on XRGB Mini Framemeister settings for 8bit home computers
The two home computers i have are:Atari 800XL PAL stock using S-VIDEO and a Commodore 64 PAL stock using S-VIDEO
My XRGB Mini Framemeister firmware is 2.04

Downgrade to 2.03a. 2.04 is beta quality, at best.

My output display is SAMSUNG T32E310 32" LED TV/MONITOR PAL 5ms
My output from the XRGB Mini Framemeister is in too HMDI2/DVI PC port at the back off the SAMSUNG via HDMI cable
All of the SAMSUNG unnecessary fancy features that introduce lagg are turned off and GAME MODE is set to ON in HMDI2/DVI PC port

Now because i'm a newbie and i'm unsure if my settings are correct i don't know if i missing something or could have better settings?

Have you looked at the junkerhq wiki article? Generally speaking, and given the use of a 288p input, you would want to select 576p@50Hz as the output mode, select PICTURE as the image mode then optionally enable scanlines if you want them. As long as your TV scales handles and scales the output mode correctly, there shouldn't be much more to it than that but you'll find more material to consider in the wiki.

unless the source systems use a full 288-line ouput (which they hardly do), you can work with overscan/zoom settings and get a perfect result on 720p or 1080p as well. The 576p output recommendation is really just for stock settings.

I don't know about a pre-cooked profile, but the wiki mentions that the Smart2x mode can be used with 480p sources. In principle, that should work well if you use a 1080p output mode. That said, the Mini's 480p handling isn't highly regarded, despite its stellar 480i processing. You would probably be better off with an OSSC or some other video processor for this particular task.

Granted, though that may be more tweaking than a self-professed newbie wants or needs. For sure, it's the way to go if the display scaling is poor.

Anyone have advice on getting HDMI-CEC working on the HDMI inputs? I have my Switch plugged in via HDMI 1 with passthrough enabled, and every time it turns on it switches to an invalid input instead of the input the Framemeister's plugged into. The weird thing it used to work, but after I had to unplug and replug my HDMI inputs recently, it stopped - and I can't figure out how to fix it again.

Has anyone tried the Avermedia 4K (GC573) or Ultra (GC553) with the XRGB-Mini? I'm not getting sound at all just plugin the XRGB output HDMI into those capture cards input port. UNLESS I plug the output port from those cards to an active input device (screen, another capture card, whatever).

It's weird because older capture cards, like Extreme, Live Gamer or U3 (yeah, I collect capture cards xD) don't have this issue, they capture the sound perfectly fine without any kind of passthrough thing (well, U3 is actually just an USB capture device, it cannot output video).

HDMI consoles give sound perfectly fine without the passthrough thing, again. It's just the XRGB-Mini and those new capture cards.

Any idea?

was just discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=67683

I would still say that at its core it's an EDID issue.

In the thread above it was suggested to just route the capture output back into a HDMI input on the FM itself. Seems like an easy workaround.

And remember the various reports a few years ago, where sound was a problem on certain TVs as long as deep color on the FM was enabled. Maybe check that as well ?

My apologies, I didn't see that topic using Google Search (weird, since there are like 10 proper results giving Avermedia and XRGB-Mini).

Deep Color didn't change anything, unfortunately. I guess plugin the HDMI back is the only solution.

Thanks for the answer :D

Hi all, I wanted to check if anyone else had ever screwed up a firmware update on the framemeister before. We had a power out right when I was applying the update and now the framemeister only shows 2 green lights and won't try to re apply the firmware update. I see it has a usb port, id assume there must be a way to factory reset it.
Any ideas?
EDIT:
NM, I figured out it writes some files back to the card, just needed to wipe the card, reload the firmware files back on the card and start the process again.
