Today I successfully performed the RBG Bypass Mod on my PAL Megadrive (Mainboard Revision VA4). As basis for this I used the manual on this page .
The reason for the installation was, because my aging Mega Drive showed clearly visible jailbars, which did not disappear completely even with a professional RGB cable . With the installation of the RGB Bypass from Voultar I hoped to solve this permanent problem and to get a nicer RGB image on the side.

However, I am rather disappointed with the result, especially since it is not a simple mod. The improvements of the RGB image are minimal, and the jailbars did not disappear completely. The effort was hardly worth it for me. So I think that the installation of a RGB bypass is only worthwhile if the original RGB image output is really bad and no high quality RGB cable can help anymore.
