Does anyone have a Crestron HD-Scaler? How do I change the settings without the remote or at least get the remote working? I bought a remote seperately on eBay and my scaler refuses to pick it up. My issue is that the scaler is stuck in 1080i output. I need to change it to 1080p and I've looked all over the Toolbox software for a possible way to force it to change but no avail, plus there's almost no information on it after looking on Google. I've also made sure the battery was properly installed and the IR laser was firing with a camera.

EDIT: I can confirm the scaler works in the first place. It picks up my OSSC, it's just that I can't get the scaler's menu OSD to pop up with the remote.


I have one (actually 3) and I bought remotes separately and they all worked right away no config required. You might have a non working remote.


Alrighty. I'll see if I can pick up another remote. What confuses me though is that the IR laser is clearly firing because I'm pointing a camera at it. Thankfully the remotes aren't very expensive, so I'll just try one more.

EDIT: I've tried the hard reset button, but it still picks up as 1080i.

Does anyone here have experience using the PSP Go native 240p output with the OSSC ? Can’t seem to dial in the good sampling options in optim mode.

Thanks that’s a really good thread, but I was more curious of the PS1 side of things. I try to play SotN in 256*240 optim mode but I end up with bad sampling phase fuzz that I can’t get rid off

Reading fail, you even said native 240p. Hmm, I guess you tried the PSX sampling rate for 256x240 from the OSSC wiki?

H.samplerate=341.25


Sorry, all out of ideas, hopefully, someone else here can help!

Yeah of course I tried, maybe I should make a 240p test suite Eboot just to see if it can help a bit

Let us know if you can get the 240p test suite to work on a PSPGo, I tried a couple years ago and couldn't get it to boot after conversion to eboot.

I had no luck with the Eboot as well, pretty disapointing I will say. I will try using the MD version with an emulator in 256x240.

Edit : The emulator ran at 525i should have guessed

For PSPgo 240p I use H.samplerate=343.50

But with Symphony of the Night, that only works for actual gameplay, but not for the in-game menu, since the menu seems to be 384x240 I think.

yeah, the menu is a pita. it's impossible to get both the menu and the gameplay centered properly on the original PSX disc.

I want to buy either a HDFury 2 Gamer, or a HDFury Nano GX, and again I'm having a hard time making up my mind. Mostly because I have a hard time believing that the HDFury 2 performs so poorly during tests (its output image is noticeably softer compared to others). Then there's the Nano GX, which is okay at 720p, but poor at 1080p, and according to the manfacturer has the worst picture quality.

The best option would seem to be the original HDFury, but it doesn't have audio out, and the input is DVI instead of HDMI. Plus, you don't always get the AC adapter with it.

Does anyone know alternative vias on the SNES Jr motherboard for the 7805 voltage regulator? It seems the vias are damaged on my motherboard. Perhaps I can run a some wires to bridge the connections.

so, what I think you are saying is that the thru holes in which the VR mounts are damaged. the holes say IGO on the top of the pcb I think.

if that's what you mean, you can scratch away the pcb material from on top of the trace near the via to expose fresh copper. then just lay a solder bridge between the trace and the leg of the VR. if the distance is too far from the leg for a bridge, use a bodge wire between them.

That's exactly what I'm saying. I'm gonna try it out, thanks.

Have kind of a unique problem with a SEGA CD (model 2). I tried to move it today and it's just stuck. I think the rubber feet on it are just stuck on there really good. Any advice?

Did it myself, little knife action and it practically flew off.

I've got a new GC Loader preordered and have a question regarding it and the gameboy player. Currently I use an Action Replay/sd card method to load swiss/gbi and play my gameboy games on my gamecube. When I put the gc loader in my gamecube can I just run an iso of the action replay disc to load swiss or will that not work? I'm trying to figure out if I can get my one system to play gamecube discs off a sd card and also be able to play all my gameboy games through the gbi like I do now.

Ok (sorry I'm being a moron about this) but you're saying you can just run swiss from the sd card that's used in the gc loader? Will that eliminate the need for my action replay disc and my memory card adapter all together?

At the present time, it won't eliminate the need for an SD card adapter.

Ok. My last question is about the gameboy player, can you still use it ok like this? I have gameboy everdrives that I play through the player, I prefer this method over emulators because they give me easy flexibility to play games on my tv or portable across my gameboy devices.

You have the option of using Game Boy Interface's Memory Card Boot Disc and have Game Boy Interface run within 2 seconds after pressing the power button.

Ok thanks for helping me out. Stupid questions I know but thanks for clearing things up for me.

EDIT: Ok so I just re-read the page Bob wrote on retrorgb about the GBI and I realized I was being a moron about all this, I was making it much more complicated than it is. Thanks for your patience and answering my questions I appreciate it!

This is kind of a dumb request, but I need an adapter of sorts for my SCART cable for my TG-16. The modder made the DIN-8 (not mini) come out the side so the cable bends toward the rear of the machine. This is pretty taxing on the years old Retro Access cables prone to not bending well and popping solder joints. I'm looking for either an angle adapter or a short male-female cable I can install that would allow me to route the cable toward the rear. If all else fails I guess I could make my own from DigiKey parts, but I was hoping for something more professional.

Retro-Access has been making right-angle Fortiflex cables for, what, Genesis 3/CDX? I'm sure they can make you a custom one for your TG16.

I don't want to pay >$50 for a new cable and be beholden to their seemingly random and uneven schedule. I was hoping to spend <$20.

Does anyone know of a good quality S-video cable for the Wii? Monoprice makes one but it is also wired for composite so I'm hesitant to buy one. Thanks!

I would expect the cost of a roll-your-own to be right around $20 after the shipping costs. Mouser/Digikey don't carry cable connector versions of scart connectors (only pcb mount) so you'll have to order from ebay. Decent connectors are $8-10 for a single and then you need a right angle round din. This is assuming you already have cable hanging around and you don't need to buy any. (because good shielded cable is $$$ and is generally sold in minimum quantities)

I have emailed retro access numerous times and been on their site when they say things will go on sale, no response and nothing is ever on sale. Is it even possible to buy from them?

It is a weird format. You can only buy fom them on opening hours from 9 to 5 local time(I think they're on the east coast, so EST, but not sure). monday to friday

Yeah this is why I wondered if anyone knew of an option to satisfy what I need. I already own a working (for now at least) DIN8 to SCART cable for the TG-16, so I can't justify replacing it. I just fear it's going to break like the others if I bump it wrong and I'll have to pull off the shrink and resolder. I don't know if you thought I wanted a SCART terminating cable, but I want essentially a DIN8 extension cable.

EDIT: is there any reason to think this might work? www.amazon.com/CERRXIAN-Speaker-Microph ... B07VD4GLGX
