https://www.ebay.com/itm/Analog-Way-Sca ... 2749.l2649

Reminder: Extron Emotias are a overpriced meme, I got this for under $20 and it does the same shit :3

TVone C2s are still pretty cool though

EDIT: no 'true' 240p on her... the anti flicker settings make shit real nice and stable though. The Antec TVator (also clones made by AVerMedia) is also a great scan converter for the price, with enough adjustments. Combine any of these badboys with an RGB interface and you'll be having a good time! 580xi is my go to, although this Analog Way thing doesn't really benefit any extra from the xi

So this box can convert VGA to 240?

I did read the edit homie. He talks about two different pieces of equipment in his post, the VHX-480 and the TVOne C2. The edit was not clear about which one it was referring to, hence the question.

Not to start something here, but the emotia is pretty great. I have one of the GX units and it's super useful. I'm sure I could have saved a little cash by choosing a different solution, but there are limited similar devices with quality close to it, and none of them are cheap either.

This is some mysterious transcoder my friend has apparently owned for a long time, anyone recognize it? I'm assuming that's a 15kHz dsub port, haven't heard back from my buddy about it. I assumed maybe an old JROK, but I don't recall one with SCART

Just a heads up, Mimo Genius II on eBay right now. Way out of my price range, but these things are nigh-impossible to find now. I tried emailing Mimo on their borderline-dead website's email address, never heard back.

This might be more within your price range:

Hehe, I saw that. If there's any rabid collectors that Mimo is certainly still insanely rare. But, I've seen videos of it in action, seems pretty meh. Anyone have any clue what that transcoder is? The dsub port also being on there stumped me!

they have been available new from MIMO until very recently, so my guess is that anybody vaguely interested in one (and willing to pay their price) did get one in the past.

The Mimo GII simply drops every other line (and row) instead of doing any kind of pixel averaging. This produces a very sharp image given the right sources. From a engineering point of view, it wasn't a great machine though.

Mmm, I emailed them quite a while back and never got a response. Must have been right around the time they stopped producing them.

BTW that mystery board above is apparently a very early RetroTek product, was unaware he ever produced one with both dsub and SCART in. Interesting little board, my friend sent me a pic of it in use... knowing how inconsistent some of their early products had been with some people, I'm glad it works well for my friend :)
