Beharbros just announced their CMVS Ultra on Instagram. Their products, I’ve been told, are pretty good, so this should be interesting - https://www.instagram.com/p/Bz6IQ2SHx9H/?igshid=hxfoyox78b81

I dont really see a need for the scanline doubler. Also, why do these CMVS makers fail to add a power button to the front of the console? What officially released console only has a power switch in the back?

Honestly, it's cool to see new companies getting into the CMVS market. But i dont see anything special here.

Interesting.... With so many people making CMVS' ... JNX, Omega, AliExpress CMVS etc, I wonder when the well will run dry on these one slot boards? Or if the MVS cart prices will continue to climb..

Where did those enclosures come from because all of a sudden everyone seems to have em (https://www.trfightstick.com/product-page/neo-geo-mvs-custom-metal-case-pre-order?fbclid=IwAR1wPwkyADb21-ZpPRgJ5CE-QD6quwxU3_O-rdh97o6GFTHRh7_fpvuKyks)?

Also, Analogue is rumoured to have an FPGA Neo Geo in the works. I imagine, sadly, that MVS carts will be getting way more expensive in the next 12 to 18 months.

I haven't had good luck with their products, and neither have many others. Their Toro never combined sync properly for me (they did offer to refund if I shipped it back to Turkey...), and the cable it comes with is absolutely horrible (you can ONLY have it sticking out about 8" behind your Dreamcast since it doesn't bend...). People have had a ton of issues with their new version of the Garo with color bleeding and other funky stuff. I would read-up on the reviews when this comes out before buying.

Not good, and sorry to hear. Yeah, some YouTubers have been singing their praises quite a bit. I haven’t personally tried their products.

You could build your own cmvs for the price of a fancy enclosure.

This thing looks ugly as sin. That alone makes it a deal breaker regardless of features.

Re: rumored Analogue FGPA.

Where’d you see that? Is the rumor MVS, AES, or both? Non-wood hopefully. I could finally ditch my framemeister.

Agree 100%. It looks like a sports car drawn by a 4 year old.

Yeah, I have a Hanzo => Kenzei combination setup and it's just a disaster...it can no longer effectively work unless you bend wires into a certain position and leave them there...not what I'd call reliable.

Somebody linked me to a flexible wire we can hook up to the existing non-bendable ~6" wire to put the actual converter box somewhere else... might pick one up then rewire it...but really just too much work (and a horrible design period lol).

Aluminum Hi fi feet?! Someone get a hold of Master Tasuke! Lmao

I have mixed results with Beharbros - their DC HDMI adapter is works well when it works. Issue is the cable is a bit finicky.

Built in line doubler?

I love my Omega but if Analogue does an FPGA i will get that on day 1, since it would probably get jail broken and run Roms off SD card and I won’t have to use a NeoSD.

I just don’t see the point of 31khz VGA output. Do lag free 720 or 1080p over hdmi and its a different story.

But that thing would still be fugly.

The Dreamcast cable is Behar's biggest issue. The actual boxes themselves are quality and work fine. For fuck knows why they package them with the absolute cheapest cable to connect it to the Dreamcast. I've never understood why behar does that because it's like the cheapest part of the entire solution.

Not a huge fan of the design, but at least they're trying something a little different.

Nothing against the Behar Bros, but is it interesting really? You can only see an MV-1C in a different box so many times.

Yeah the cable that connects to the AV input on the dreamcast for beharbros sucks big time.

Also the RGB levels come in a little hot from what I've seen.

Once HD Rectalvision comes out with their own cable I'll probably upgrade from my Toro. I usually play Dreamcast exclusively in 480p on my plasma. Having 240p/480i would be nice for certain games.

My favorite CMVS enclosure was the old one JNX used to use until it was discontinued. James' current one is also nice and clean. Certainly preferable to this metal one, regardless of cost.

My Hanzo is a very well built device, and I have had no issues with my cable (apart from it being very short); it seems to be very high quality, but it differs from the current images on their web site (I assume they must have changed the cable design or supplier, for some reason).

At any rate, appearance aside, it will be interesting to see how this CMVS compares to the other options out there. I only have an MV-1F and a supergun, and have been considering either making or buying a CMVS. Pretty much any of the options out there would be a much cleaner solution than anything I could make, I'm sure. ;)

Fight stick is making them, the Behar bros one is a modified version with breakouts on the back and controller ports.

No question about it. I'd take it a step further and say anything James does with his CMVS' is better than the competition, not just the encasing.

We recently changed our supplier and upgraded our cables, it has custom molded connector. It's bendable and unbreakable. Old units can be upgraded for this new cable by removing the connector.
For the Garo, we can only refund when it's returned just like other products. We have sold thousands of units, it even works with cheapest hdmi converters and pc monitors. If you have issues you can return it or use it with a compatible device/monitor.

This enclosure is manufactured from scratch by our partner TRFightstick, it's all custom, handmade in Istanbul. We designed it together.
People on the other forums know well how much quality their products are.
We use high quality auto paint. We wanted to give our CMVS a Hi-Fi equipment like look. Overall it has the best possible video output you can get.
Analogue units have an obsolete BA7238 component encoder, imho it has a poor output. We are emphasizing on the build quality and video output.
So we are not offering a customized sattelite set top box.
James is my friend and we collaborated in the past, I've learnt many things from him.
This is just a fun project to celebrate our 6th anniversary. It will be a limited edition.
