Reply To: Sega Saturn (NTSC-J) Sync Issues


Sync strippers have been known to cause problems when they aren’t needed, like with the OSSC or the gscartsw_lite. You really only need a sync stripper if you’re using a PVM or BVM; and, if you’re using a gscartsw_lite, that has one built in.

Frankly, CSync cables with a sync stripper in the SCART head don’t make sense to me (except when connecting a console directly to a display that will only take CSync); half the reason of using CSync over luma or CVBS is to reduce interference, but the sync strippers in these cables are on the other end of the cable, after the interference would be introduced. :/
