Na, I don’t actually need to know anything since I got the diagram from the service manual. Just something that I found interesting that like noone has pictures up of online with all the talk and showing off of them there are.


#725

all about dem scanlines, son


#726

Dat ass doe…


#727

I see what you did there


#728

Just found out about this thing. Anybody considering one of these retrotink devices?

Wow… never heard of this! The price is nice too.


#730

It popped up on my Twitter feed as a repost from the MLiG dudes yesterday. It seems like a good option for people who don’t want to invest in s-video or component cables, or those who already have the HD RetroVision cables.

From what I hear the compatibility of the retro tink is amazing. I wish the ossc could say the same thing. I’m sure this thing will slowly mature into a higher end product that has more compatibility than the ossc.


#732

So this basically converts 240p/480i to 480p right?


#733

That’s really all it’s doing and it doesn’t support RGBs or RGBhv input which is a dealer breaker for me


#734

All of y’all just finding out about the RetroTINK should be watching RetroRGB’s weekly videos.


#735

Well, it does component and svideo so that’s fine with me!


#736

Also, if you want RGB, go for the RetroTINK Ultimate since it does RGBHV and RGBs.


#737

Those are all outputs :joy: That’s an add-on for the Rasp Pi


#738

Damn, oh well, there’s always the OSSC, lol. TBH I don’t mess with the Rasp Pi at all so my knowledge is limited on it.


#739

I don’t have the attention span for this :sweat_smile:


#740

But it’s only 30 minutes long!!!=O


#741

I got my scope!


(Model 1 for comparison)

Just finished watching and I’m really impressed. This seems targeted right at someone like me who doesn’t have the time to mod things. While it’s the weakest option, I’m totally fine to plug my CDX into the composite input and get Sega Genesis and Sega CD on my HDTV. I would love that option right now with no lag. That said, I’d definitely go with the HD Retrovision cable when it’s available again too.

Looks like they’re shipping more in about six weeks. I’ve pre-ordered. Will report back when it arrives!

Is there a cheap and simple way to capture screenshots (just a screen, not audio or video) from a ps3 at native resolution? Capture card? I’m woefully ignorant in this realm.
