I received my OSSC this past Sunday, and have been in heaven. I have it connected to a Hisense H9G (4K) and it works with damn near every setting that I've tried with the OSSC. My 240p consoles work perfectly with Line3x (I prefer 720p with scanlines), and my 480p consoles (Dreamcast and Wii) work great with the "Allow upsample2x" setting. Line2x didn't work for 480i from my two PS2s (1x USA and 1x JPN), but Line3x (although text is super jumpy) and Line4x do. All of the consoles, other than the PS2, clearly look better on the OSSC compared my old XRGB Mini. DOA2 Hard*Core looks particularly pixelated, but Hyper Street Fighter II, PES 4, and WWE Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth looked fine.

I've been so impressed over the past few days that I actually listed my XRGB Mini for sale on eBay this morning. I didn't think that I'd ever part with it. I'll miss the proper 480i deinterlacing, but it's not worth keeping (just for the PS2...) when it's selling for $500+ on the second hand market these days.

BUCKOA51 - I can't thank you enough. I placed my order on Monday evening, and it was shipped out first thing Tuesday morning. It arrived in Richmond on Thursday. Too bad DHL held the package until Sunday. It was also well packaged. Thanks again man.

Someone on the VGP forums mentioned that the OSSC in passthrough had a terrible image with 4:3 content, like the aspect ratio was way off.

Which got me thinking, is there anything 4:3 that would have any reason to be used with passthrough on the OSSC? Only thing I can think of would be if you'd rather not use it's deinterlacing.

I think something is being misinterpreted here. The OSSC does passthrough just fine with the expected results, which will vary wildly depending on how well your TV scales low-resolution content. The aspect ratio isn't way off, though it's slightly off due to HDMI specifying an 8:9 pixel aspect ratio for 480i/p and analog component typically assuming 10:11.

My fault, I left out details. It was about how a particular TV model handles 4:3 in general, which came up when passthrough was used on the OSSC.

But that's what made me wonder if there's any reason besides not liking the OSSC's deinterlacing that you would want to use passthrough for.

Ah, I see. Well, there are plenty of people who don't like the heavily aliased/pixelated look of 2x480p. I'm not one of those people (if my eyes aren't bleeding it's not sharp enough), but there's certainly a case to be made for using passthrough for 480p even if the display supports 960p (not all do). Most games aren't really doing "pixel art" at that resolution, so letting the display smooth out the edges a bit makes sense.

What do you mean by "didn't work"? No image? Looks funny?

In my case, I'll either do passthrough or Line2x with scanlines enabled (looks better/less shimmery to me with black lines inserted for missing fields than doubled lines) for 480i content.

No image.

I have a bit of an emergency with my OSSC. I was trying out different scaler combinations with the VGA input and something has gone wrong. The image is now way too bright and overblown and looks slightly greener than it should on the YPbPr AV2.

I tried resetting settings and restarting, I tried reinstalling firmware 0.88 but the issue is still there.

I checked my cables as well and they seem fine, did a component get damaged or something? This is pretty upsetting as it ruins the entire image and I cannot fix it.

Edit: Well it seems like it was my new component distribution amp that is maybe bad. I tried my old one again and it looks good again on the OSSC so maybe the new one is sending out a bad signal though it looks fine on a crt and looked fine before.

Most component switches I've owned liked to boost the signal and make it too hot, to the point where my plasma would drop sync on brighter scenes. Don't know if that could be related?
