16x9 is NOT forced via HDMI or composite. I have it connected to my TV and played for a while on it. No stretching. The only stretching seen would be from someone's TV set to do "fill my HD TV" mode.
Right, I see. Thanks for the info. Like others have said, I'll simply have to give it a go for myself and find out how my set handles the X via HDMI :)

Can someone else try using the composite cable on a good TV and let me know what they think? It looks awful to me, but I want to make sure there isn't something wrong with my unit (yes, it's that bad.)

My LCD TV has 6 different screen automated size modes and ratios inc 4:3 but at the same time its also crap because when I use to play my MVS games on it, there use to always be lots of tiny white stripes over the shadows and anything black which was annoying and ended up getting a small old TV just to play the games so im guessing that I will get the same problem with this too.

I am glad there are lots of positive reviews and I just want this month to end so I can get my hands on mine

I plugged it into my computer and it seems to have a 1 GB hard drive that is accessible through usb. It's also charging through the usb.

Can't say it looks good on the TVs I tried. I don't have what you would call a good CRT TV though. I can't use it on my HDTV as it has issues synching, but when it does sync, it doesn't look good, but that's how my TV handles content I think more than the Neo sucking hard.

I asked for one when I was 12. My parents made no bones about it, they saw the price of the games and said no way kid! I got a guitar instead. A better gift in retrospect. Didn't get my first Neo until college in 1998.

When I got KOF96 I never had a credit card and was impatient to send of a cheque and wait so asked my mum if she could get the game for me and I pay her back, when I told her the price, she said your dad better not find out how much it is or he will go mad......looking back I can see how totally stupid it was the pay that much for a game.

I've looked up the company and they appear to design a lot of devices that run Linux, so my best guess is that this device also runs uses Linux.

GameStop.com orders: did you get yours?

I paid the most expensive type of shipping fee to get them today, and all I got was the extra controller and not the main system.

I recall reading elsewhere prior to release that this is a Linux based device, so that makes sense.

For shits and giggles, can you copy a ROM to it? ZIP and unzipped? Maybe put it in a folder with standard MAME ROM name?

I am going to try and figure out which file system they're using to see if I can extract any of the code.

i dont think its filesystem related - rather USB related. When you connect it via usb , the unit most likely had boot loader code that can run a small program to open up the mass storage space.

what we need is someone with a USB packet sniffer hardware to see whats being sent back and forth between the PC and system.

Got mine via mail from Gamestop yesterday. Gold LE System and extra stick. Everything was pristine.

THE PICTURE SUCKS ON TV.

I have it plugged via A/V into an LG 1080 LCD. It looks horrid. I haven't tried HDMI yet due to all the other negative comments, but I'll try it soon.

As for the handheld, it's amazing. Very nice. Very lush. Plays fantastic and looks beautiful on the screen.

This thing just looks rancid on my TV though.

***EDIT****

I just tried HDMI. It's MUCH better. Still not as good as my real AES though.

I'm happy with my X.

I'm glad it's not just me, I was worried that my unit might be defective.

So, it sounds like for people really only interested in this for the handheld perspective should wait till its offered separately without the base and stick.

That's a damn shame though.

While I have no intention of buying one of these and I have talked shit about it, it's sad that the video output quality is so poor.

I guess it was an afterthought.

right - we were all worried about the emulation and kind assumed that, oh with HDMI everything should looks great - but that isnt the issue at all.

its a shame, everything else about the system is very good

Just look at it this way, they really are faithfully recreating the Neo home experience, complete with shitty composite video!
