    Thanks for all the feedback guys. It's a little more than I budgeted for but will go with either the Scart/OSSC or HD retrovision cable.

    I did also come across this - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RGB-SCART...AAAOSwADxb~3mQ

    Made me wonder if Scart>Component would produce a reasonable picture? Certainly, a fraction of the cost although I guess it would lead to input lag and all sorts. Guess the only option is to pay out for something good. Cheers

    The only way you'll get a nice image from a retro console on an LCD screen is by using a scaler like the OSSC or Framemeister. You can't get a sharp clear image by simply using a Scart converter.

    Of course, things that do convert Scart to Component or HDMI will deliver an image that will probably look OK to some eyes. It depends if you can tolerate blurriness and probably some image defects.

    I think the OSSC is a brilliant device for a reasonable price.

    A lot of Americans I know use a device like this for plugging their consoles into component CRTs, but if you were to use that with your existing LCD you'd be at the mercy of the internal upscaler. It'd look better than composite, but still not great. Certainly not give you the sharp lines the OSSC would.

    The Kaico OSSC on Amazon comes with the multi-region PSU, remote and overlay(so you know what each button does) for 139.99. I think that's a great deal.

    I think the creator did a deal with Kaico to also sell through them.

    I just searched for that on Amazon, and it's a good price, but unfortunately it's for a reason.

    Probably best to stick to the official source for now.

    I was going to mention that too. I don’t feel it as bad as GDEMU considering it is an open source project but I guess you’re rolling the dice for a minimal saving.

    Bloody hell... I thought it was the same product but marketed by Kaico. So I wouldn't recommend it, seeing the build quality is said to be bit dodgy.
