There's a thread for nintendo's new emu box, should start using that now rather than cluttering this one.

Has anyone who has one of these been able to check out if Interpolation works? I saw an old review vid, from November, that said they couldn't get it to work.
I was wondering if maybe it had been fixed.

I've seen dozens of people posting photos on twitter, and MLiG did a review of it ages ago...

No pictures on this thread, no reviews. I just find that a little strange, this is a thread dedicated to it no?

The definitive NESRGB thread is here, but for Hi Def NES you'll need to go to Nintendoage.

Probably because everyone who has one is playing it no time for reviewing :P

Jason has been posting on his Twitter retweets of people tweeting about their Hi-Def NES, pretty cool to see: https://twitter.com/GameTechUS

Ask for a review on YouTube LORD KAYOSS posted a review of his unit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztTHFT_Xk0o And as Guspaz said My Life In Gaming did a review of it back in late 2015 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI60A3DpI6w

The lack of end-user problems (installation/usage) and availability are also reasons why there aren't that many posts! Same goes for the UltraHDMI (N64).

I wish this was true. The truth is low supply and tight control on recommended installers has remmedied a lot of issues learned from the NESRGB.

But in terms of profitability, only Tim and Kevin know which is better. :)

Does anyone know if 3x scaling can give even scanlines on a 768 set, like the F4500 plasma? It would leave small black strips on top and bottom of screen like Kega Fusion, but that would be very cool.

These are the types of questions you get answered when lots of end users start chiming in!

Yeah, I find it depressing that this thread seems to have less action than the mini NES HD thread. I want to see more screenshots. I've seen the reviews and whatnot, but I still would like to see more.

The HDN has 3 output modes - 640x480, 1280x720, 1920x1080. What resolution were you outputting from a PC to your F4500 for your Kega Fusion example?

I would just like to see more activity on this thread. These are exciting times, with these new HDMI'd consoles coming out of the woodwork.

OK. I believe I was using 3X on 1024x768 res on Kega Fusion. So yeah it probably wouldnt work. :|

If 1024x768 output is important to you, you can always post a feature request via forum thread - http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=12019, or via PM on nesdev, or try to catch Kevtris on IRC.

Does anybody have more information on the Everdrive N8 and the Hi-Def NES mod? I see that some people are reporting that it works but over at the krikzz.com forums it sounds like everybody is having an issue but I'm hoping it's related to the Analog NT and not the Hi-Def NES mod itself.

Has anybody used the Everdrive N8 and the Hi-Def NES for several hours/days without any problems?

It works. With a real Everdrive and a real NES with the Hi-DefNES mod, you're good.

Two scenerios for issues:

1. Clone Everdrive. Buy a real one.
2. Using Analogue NT.

The problems are coming from clone devices.

Analogue NT is a real NES. Uses original CPU and PPU chips.

Pop yours open and look at the motherboard. That ain't no NES.

Another example: The Radica isn't a Genesis. It has some real Genesis chips, but it's no Genesis.

Using real PPUs and CPUs is real hardware, as are the controller sockets, card edge connectors and Fami expansion port. So yes, it's real hardware.

It's as much of a real NES as the Top Loader, The Famicom, The AV Famicom, the Famicom Tilter or Low Budget's Super 8-Bit.
Just because inconsequential components and board design that aren't necessary to be 100% the same to function. Doesn't mean it's not real hardware.

The Radica on the other hand is more like a typical GOAC (Genesis on a Chip) clone console like NOACs than real hardware with many issues and inaccuracies. Unlike the NT which, using the PPU/CPUs from old Famicoms will not have. It functions exactly the same as any "real" NES.

Saying the NT isn't real hardware would be like saying further revisions of any console that uses any kind of hardware consolidation isn't the real deal.

I assume you mean in top loader? It should be technically possible. But why would you? :)

Sure can, but you might see the jailbars again because you can't lift pin 21, you'll have to pull composite from the base pin of the old composite transistor.
