I wasn’t sure what to look up for this issue. I’ve worked on the settings for both a Turbo Duo connected via RGB SCART and a Famicom connected through a Retrotink/HDMI to Component adapter
Both of them show the same sort of discoloration when there are bright objects over a dark background
I took this higher angle shots since you can see the effect more clearly when not facing head on
Does this look like a TV thing? OSSC settings thing? something else?
Hard to say, have you done any kind of TV calibration, make sure you’re not running it over bright?
Are you running the standard Generic 4:3?
Have you verified that the same TV input and HDMI cable (plugged into a known-good HDMI source) doesn’t produce the issue?
Maybe it is a TV settings thing. I’ve never messed with brightness or contrast much. It’s a new smallish 1080p tv. Vizio
Brightness/contrast were set right in the middle so maybe toying with those will help
I see the same issue with a Genesis through OSSC.
the picture with a PS4 on the same hdmi input looks good as far as I can tell. I’m not sure if that’s the best comparison?
On the OSSC settings, I’m using
320×240 on genesis
256×240 on PCE
I can’t remember on famicom- i hadn’t saved those settings yet, but I think it may have been 256×240 also
All three of these were at Line5x, but you can see the issue across all the modes
SUper Famicom as well
But the issue is also present if you go to Generic 4:3?
yes unfortunately so. i adjusted the TV to a much lower brightness then the contrast a lot higher and got most of it to disappear. i can still see it mainly on the Famicom connection. Maybe it’s just the TV itself, I can’t really tell
Recently tested this as well with a super Famicom using 5x
Link to the past and mega man x both have the dark bands
It will appear across the screen where text appears for example
Trying to attach an example
This is on another TV – a 1080 Samsung maybe 5 years old?
This banding does not show up when using a cheapie scart upscaler I bought on Amazon
But I cannot figure out what setting or combo of settings on the OSSC May clean thus up
Do I have a bad OSSC?
My reply with my photos from an HDMI computer monitor disappeared
But it showed the banding in the same general location
