SSS3 working setups

monads

Crossed Swords Squire
No issues here. I've mainly been using the composite signal and not tested RGB (I have the equipment on-hand/ready) as I just want to play some games!!! With that said, this works nicely and I realize without testing the RGB on 1 of my modified consoles is probably useless but posting anyway for others:

Monitors:
Sony KV-1311CR

Cables:
Genesis2 AV Cable

Systems:
Core Grafx (modified w/RGB, Jailbar fix)
Core Grafx II (unmodified original)
Original PSUs
 

Syn

Just Short..., As always... :-(,
Listing composite is fine and I asked for working setups. Fits the criteria.

Mine is perfect. No video noise and no audio hum
Turbografx 16 + Rev2 + HD Retrocable on a Sony Trinitron XBR CRT and my Sony HD Grand Wega rear projection tv.
My tg16 is nearly new, less than 30 hrs. Bought it from someone who didn't know what they had.

Well seeing as your interjection was not needed and had you decided to just leave it alone instead of going all "IMHO"...you can go fuck yourself.

Hey RevQuixo, I think VBA may have hacked your forum account. Might want to change your password.

The only setup that for me *DIDN'T* work was using a sync-on-composite cable, maybe due to the capacitor thing? Even then, it worked fine on my PVM, but caused some intermittent flickering through upscalers. Once I switched to a CSync cable, the problem went away.

For me, the best-looking setup is going into a PVM. Framemeister is next-best because I can't see any video noise at all, and it kind of smooths out the jail bars being produced by my PCE. OSSC shows a little bit of noise (but it's very faint and only noticeable against certain, lighter-colored large areas), but it also has the sharpest picture and best color. Ultimately, using the CSync cable, every setup I've tried works, and I am very happy with the SSDS3.

No that was all me.

You might want to be careful that the thread guideline police might take issue with you posting your set-up that didn't work in the same post as the set-ups that did.

Sandisk Ultra 64GB Micro SDXC

Very happy with how it works, I'm not hearing any buzzing on my receiver and I have it turned up pretty loud. I hear a tiny access noise when it's loading, but nothing beyond that. Visually, some large solid colors I can see noise in if I get right up on the screen. But I am playing on a 55" and don't notice it.

Update: zero audio buzz after cleaning the hell out of EXT BUS and cables, adapters, etc. All holes and pins ;)

Update2: flipped the C60 cap just because - no difference in video quality. RGB/Composite both tested

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

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

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.

Have only played a couple of games so far, but I made sure to try Valis 2 - no issues with video or audio, even with the volume turned up louder than I'd usually play it at.

I have a lot of other equipment I plan on testing with in the next week or so (HD Retrovision cables, OSSC, Sony HD CRT, Sony SD CRT, OEM Gen 2 AV cables, and an older discredited "sync boosted" JP-21 cable from Retro Access). Will post other configurations if they prove to be working.
