    Open Source Scan Converter - OSSC

    So letís continue with the OSSC discussion...

    Is anyone using it with a 4K telly? 720p output and letting the TV do the 3x scale? Iím looking at the LG UJ750V set, which apparently has a 12ms response/lag, even with HDR content in game mode. Iím wondering how much extra lag would be introduced scaling 720p to 2160p, even though itís a simple 3x scale.

    1080p output and a 2x scale would be better I'd have thought?

    Got my OSSC today, very excited to give it a try. Is it worth upgrading to an expensive SCART cable like this? Do they make much of a difference compared to a standard one like this? I want to get this setup right so I'm not looking to cheap out, I'm not very knowledgeable about AV setups and am wondering how much of a difference it makes.

    Not too keen on that store - I have had 3 bnc -scart cables fail and the one I told them about, they were as useful as a chocolate fire guard and never even offered to replace it. When I opened it up, i would be embarrassed if i had sold, It to someone, given the quality of wiring. Sorry back to your question. The official ps1scart is a great quality scart lead, but pricey. The blaze ps2 scart lead is excellent too. It’s all about the shielding and quality of components for analogue RGB

    I've had to fix their work before on more than one occasion too. Granted that was some time ago now, but really.

    Just been fiddling with the OSSC.

    PS2 doesn't look better going via component into the OSSC than just straight component to HDMI into my TV. Reading around, this is to be expected since the OSSC doesn't do much with a 480 signal.

    Tried my Dreamcast with VGA but I'm getting a hellish flickering from it. Not sure what's causing it so googling around for answers. Might be that my cheap VGA cable I bought a couple of years ago and barely used is just bad.

    Testing with a VGA to HDMI converter, the Dreamcast VGA cable is fine. I just get flickering with the OSSC. Not sure why but also, I don't really care since I got this for PS1 stuff.

    Sorry for the hijack but if retrogamingcables are no longer recommended, whereís the best now?

    Just thought I'd update with my OSSC experience.

    Got my PS2, PS1 and Gamecube all going in through a scart splitter. The PS1 goes up to x5 lines but on x2, x3 and x5 the picture is really dark so I'm going with x4 and it looks amazing. The PS2 is line doubled from 480 and looks really good. The Gamecube is also on x4 and looks lovely.

    I also have a Wii plugged in via component, being doubled from 480 and that looks nice and sharp.

    I've had two problems. A Dreamcast going in via VGA had a horrible flickering. I've not dug too deeply into it as I have a VGA to HDMI box that it can go through and that looks great. My other problem is that using a Freeloader on my PAL GC to run a US Killer7 just gives me a black screen. I tried the Famitsu Resi4 demo disc as I've run that with a Freeloader in the past and it was fine so it must be the signal from that game or NTSCU on a PAL machine. No idea, I'm not very good at this stuff.

    Anyway, very, very happy with the OSSC and the picture quality coming out of it. Your mileage may vary as I'm not an AV nerd. Also, your TV needs to be in game mode. I had some troubles with stretched images that were fixed by switching to game mode. I remember putting my TV in game mode ages ago but at some point it switched back without me realising.
