    SSS3 working setups

    Please post your working setups only.

    SuperGrafx, sss3 rev 2

    Retro-access scart, OSSC, Vizio 50"

    Retro-access JP 21pin, xrgb3, Samsung 40"

    No notes or exceptions, both setups are perfect.

    My SSD3 setup has been working perfectly since Day 1 - no visual noise, no audio buzzing. Had some minor game compatibility issues that went away by disabling the In Game Triggers and flipping the compatibility switch on the back of the SuperGrafx. Ironically, I've had people argue with me that visual noise MUST be there, and that I'm just not seeing it.

    Recapped, jailbar-fixed Supergrafx
    GamekingNo1 SCART cable with premium shielding and ferrite chokes on both cable ends.
    Original Revision 1 SSD3
    Two TVs: LG OLED B6 with OSSC, Sony PVM-2030

    I'm interested in hearing more details/pics of this cable.

    Is that from the dude in Poland or eastern Europe somewhere?

    No video noise from all games I've tried so far, but my left audio channel goes scratchy and cuts-out after 5 mins of play. Most likely due to my console needing a cap kit. Gonna try replacing caps this weekend.

    He's in Sweden. He was recommended to me on these forums as a premium cable maker when I switched all my consoles over to SCART back in 2016. Sadly, he seems to have disappeared from the Internet since then, or changed his handle at least.

    I'll post a picture of the cable later tonight after I get home. It's a pretty rugged cable.

    SuperGrafx w/ Mickcris RGB Mod, / SSDS3 Rev 2 / retro access CSYNC scart cable / OSSC / LG OLED works fine.

    same as above but with HD Retrovision cables instead of scart...video noise fest. Might be the PSU, looking to replace it. Getting the cap flipped too for good measure.

    I found a guy while randomly looking for a premium megadrive2 scart cable that sells them out of Poland. User name was thefoo.83, as the ebay link seems to take up 3 solid lines. I was about to pull the trigger on one of his csync cables when I noticed the retro access cables were back in stock(9 as of writing this) and just went with one of those. Thanks to everyone on cable recommendations and the like!

    I ordered three of "thefoo.83"'s cables early on when I was first switching my consoles over to SCART. All three of his cables were garbage - spaghetti-thin cabling, poor build quality (the insulation didn't cover the inner wires near the plug ends), heavy RF interference. I threw them all away.

    Granted that was two years ago, but I'd definitely avoid his cables.
