@ Sal

Looks nice! Thanks for bringing this to market. Good to have some high-quality scandoubler alternatives available.

If it's being sold at AmigaKit, countries are probably "most of them" :)

Wow that looks great!

I have an RGB-YUV converter already but it only works on TV's/Monitors that can handle Bi-level sync and of my 4 component equipped displays, 2 of them dont work with it.

Great news!
A few photos of the screen display would be very helpful as the video quality wasn't the best.
You could also post some comparison photos between your adapter and other display solutions such as RGB->SCART cable.

So what is doing the scan doubling here? Your hardware or the TV's upscaling circuitry?

Hope you are able to secure some DB23 connectors rather than hack DB25s.   :D

Some good quality pics will be nice, the c64 colors of your wb and monitor ghosting dont help.

If is an adaptor TV or monitor make the scandoubling, then the quality depends of the TV/monitor (i think).

This is good news as any new classic developments are cool. However, having said this its probably just a straight rgb to component adaptor. I'm sure it doesnt do scaling,flicker fix, doubling, whatever its all on the monitor. So for instance if your monitor doesnt support PAL it wont display it.

Well, I guess this adapter will be helpful for as long as LCD TVs continue to include component jacks, which will probably only be for a couple more years.

After that, I suppose you could still buy a component to HDMI adapter to be able to continue to use this with HDMI only TVs.

That is correct. component video is already a 15khz horiz refresh, so it doesn't need a scan doubler.


I'm trying to come up with a HDMI version but that is not as easy and will be quite a while before that even begins to come to light.


we were thinking of trying to keep this within the $50 range somewhere.

i have not had a problem with any TV unless it only supported 480p.

This unit requires the TV to Support 480i for NTSC and 576i for PAL.
