    Trying out the Pandora's box with a CRT tonight. This Jamma->Scart adapter only outputs video but that should be fine. If the picture is nice I'll probably build another bartop cab with a 14" crt inside it. If not, well, at least I will capture the output using an ossc and compare it to the vga just for the heck of it.

    I’m very interested to see what you think of this. I have been eyeballing it for a long time, but just never was able to pull the trigger. I always thought it would be a good use in the gameroom.

    Just tried this and I can say that the image on a 14" CRT is tack sharp. I need to check it with the ossc but it looks proper 240p or 224p, the picture is stable but at least on one of my crts the image is offset to the left with a big black bar on the right. I will try this on another crt to verify if it is caused by the tv or the Pandora. I really like the contrast of the crt compared to my old tft in the current bartop. If I can solve the centering (probably need to figure out how to access the service menu) then I'll definitely build a new cab. Keep in mind that the tearing of the Pandora's Box is apparent on both CGA and VGA output modes.

    Yours is probably newer than the one I had, but my old Pandora 3 was not centered either, I had a solid one inch black bar on the left. On a cab this doesn't matter so much since you can make adjustments, but I'm not about to adjust my Trinitron.
    Whatcha gonna do?

    I have this problem with various PCBs on my Supergun. The PVM monitor I have is an older model with no OSD, so you have to open the case to make adjustments which is a major pain in the ass.

    I picked up one of these from AliExpress for adjusting the image and it works great:

    If I have time later this weekend I could maybe shoot a quick and dirty one on my phone. Its pretty no nonsense though. Just a power button and two pots.

    I spent way too much time and money trying to do the same thing with an Extron unit when I stumbled upon this thing.

    Size would've been nice. My supergun and TV combo usually displays the game beyond the borders of the TV.

    Thrift store pickup of an old PC CRT.

    Decided to try it out (via VGA) with one of those Pandora units. Nice crisp image.
