I am looking an up to date recommendation for converting S-video to RGB

I would like to know what device to Get to use S-video devices on my OSSC?

Also since it is being line doubled to 480p or greater. Would S-Video to VGA or Component be better than RGB?

I believe the device to look for on the horizon is the RetroTink X2. I haven't tested it myself though.


In the past I've used one of these no-name transcoders from eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Composite-S-Vi ... SwqVVbN-Bq

I'm pretty sure I got mine for $80. And I'm pretty sure it's locked to 480i output.

I used to use that with YPbPr output into a Garo into a gscartsw_lite to fix the sync.

With SuperG's new gscartsw with RGsB support. The Garo can be dropped.

This. The RetroTINK 2X, plus an HDMI to VGA converter, into AV3 of the OSSC.

I don't recall if there was a more-recommended converter than the Tendak one.

Thanks guys and great video Retro RGB.

I see that they are sold out unfortunately so I sent him an email for an order request.

I cant wait to play my 3DO Catalog on my Megaview properly.

The 3DO rules. It is a super tacky exotic console and feautures some good FMV games such as star control 2.

Also the CD audio sounds loud and clear on a surround system. The version of Super Street Fighter 2 is the best because of the Audio and added background animations.

Cannon Fodder is super fun and somehow plays great on a D pad controller.

The system is CD media with no Copy protection so making backups of your collection can be done with a CD burner.

Lucienns quest is a short mundane turn based JRPG that I really enjoy playing with a hangover.

Gex is a kinda fun platformer and features CD audio.

The DOOM on 3do has a bordered windows and runs choppier than the 32X and the Jaguar but has a CD audio Heavy Metal soundtrack that kicks fuckin ass and makes your choppy game play feel hard core because of it.

And the version of Out if this World has updated Visuals and the CD audio ambient noises and sound effects.

Also its FIFA and Madden are great if you like those games.

WIth the Retrotink 2x,hopefully coming on backorder. I will be able to play these games with scan-lines in 240P Svideo through the OSSC on my Mitsubishi Megaview 37" CRT monitor with no borders.

I'm stoked at least.

I'm working to make 3DO RGB mods a thing for everyone too, though to be fair they will cost you probably more than a RetroTINK when you factor everything in (unless you DIY of course).

I was super sad when Citrus3000PSI stopped working on his. I also plan to hook up my RetroTINK 2X as a means of integrating the 3DO into my chain. My current setup *works*, but it's clunky.

I would like to see a more comprehensive review of the RetroTINK 2x, since RetroRGB showed a few seconds here and there of actual footage.
Also RetroRGB used the Optimized 5x mode for the OSSC footage which doesn't look very good since small noise is treated like a complete pixel, Generic 5x would be much better for upscaling the RetroTINK2x through the OSSC.

My main use of it will be the NES since I don't want to mod my consoles and keep them stock, so the retrotink2x will go along with my ossc.
If someone can make a review of the RetroTINK 2x with more Composite captures direct and through the OSSC, I will be very grateful.

BTW, the ADV7280 decoder on the RetroTINK2x has TONS of features that the user can't control:

The RetroTINK2x could have been as comprehensive as the OSSC in terms of user adjustability, but Mike chose not to overcomplicate it, and keep all the decoding settings at default.
