So I’ve got this problem with the PS2 and Gamecube, where 480i is just too squished, and it doesn’t seem possible to stretch it, firstly any ideas? My TV does have a stretch function, but it doesn’t work in 480i.
The way I’ve got around it is to force 1080i output through GSM on the PS2, works amazing, but after I go to save the changes, turn off and on the OSSC, it has completely reset!? And it ONLY happens with 1080i, what on earth is going on?February 16, 2019 at 9:14 PM #25276nmalinoskiParticipant
My TV does have a stretch function, but it doesn’t work in 480i.
Let’s start here. How are you getting 480i to your TV? Are you running the PS2 and GameCube through the OSSC, with 480i set to passthrough, meaning your TV is receiving 480i over HDMI? Normally, this shouldn’t be a problem, as SD and ED resolutions are intended to be stretched by the display.
So I’ve got this problem with the PS2 and Gamecube, where 480i is just too squished…
What do you mean by “too squished”? Are you playing games with anamorphic widescreen options enabled, and the display isn’t stretching the image to fill the panel? Or is it displaying at a proper 4:3 ratio, and you’d just prefer that the display stretch the already-correct image to fill the screen?

If you’re referring to settings on the OSSC, did you save your changes to a profile before restarting it? If not, that would be why your OSSC settings got reset with a power cycle.
Also, out of curiosity, what settings did you change for 1080i usage? Switch from bob deinterlace to passthrough?February 16, 2019 at 10:23 PM #25280
So I’m using 480ix4 bob to TV, the games I’m playing do not have widescreen options, so it’s standard 4:3, and appropriately selected on the TV too, it just looks too narrow, when comparing 480p or 240p modes, I can tell, so forcing 1080i widens the screen, then with a few resolution tweaks in advanced OSSC settings I can get the vertical filled, and wide enough to match any other non 480i modes, but the OSSC will not save anything 1080i, it’s absolutely bizzare! Only way is to keep it in standby permanently, but why should I have to do that, when all other profiles and resolutions save perfectly fine, when the power switch is flicked off, makes no sense.February 17, 2019 at 5:42 PM #25293maxtherabbitParticipant
I’ve noticed the same behaviour with 1080p. The setting for h backporch is not stored in the profiles. I.e. adjusting the value and then loading the unmodified profile does NOT reset it back to default, only a power cycle will. So it seems the profiles do not save nor recall settings for 1080i/p advanced timingFebruary 18, 2019 at 12:54 AM #25304
That’s a definite bug then, glad it’s not just me, I’ve been keeping it on all the time so it wouldn’t wipe, gave up in the end, as not being able to turn it off is ridiculous.February 18, 2019 at 2:30 PM #25315HarrumphParticipant

It seems certain TVs do not properly adjust the 720×480 frame. Try setting H.Active to 704, that fixes it on my TV set (a Philips).February 28, 2019 at 9:26 PM #25418marqsParticipant
The fix for settings saving was made shortly after latest firmware, but an official release of next fw has not been done yet. Meanwhile, you can download this test fw which includes the fix along a few other ones.March 2, 2019 at 1:28 PM #25446
Thanks! I’ll try it 🙂
One question whilst I have your attention, does Voultars RGB bypass for megadrive, work on the OSSC? I can’t find a definitive answer:)March 2, 2019 at 4:08 PM #25447
Just to add, that firmware fix worked a treat 🙂
