Hi, thanks for the good information in this thread! I have an older-revision 2x and wonder if the new firmware might be for me.
Sometimes think I see a bit of clipping in bright scenes when using classic game consoles or VHS players on the composite or S-Video inputs. I think I see the clipping when using the 2x directly with either my HDMI TV or DVI monitor no matter which settings I alter on the displays. If I use the 2x with an OSSC I have not been able to reduce the perceived clipping by altering any of the settings on the OSSC. The same analog video signal on CRT passthrough does not appear to be clipped.
I notice James-F mentions input gain tuning in the description of the new firmware. Should I try and upgrade my older-revision 2x to the new firmware?
