    Ok not that anyone cares probably but I discovered a flaw. When set to 720px I get the correct aspect ratio of 4:3 but the image is blurrier.

    So it is what it is that the ossc and my oled will just have the incorrect aspect ratio. When set to 960p and I don’t know how to fix it without compromising image quality. Frustrating. Wish the GameCube had a Dreamcast hdmi mod where it also doubled to 960p at the correct aspect ratio.

    Ok so this quest for 4:3 has taken me on a whild ride guys.

    Im convinced that it’s my TV just not playing nice so ive kind of landed on a middle ground here.

    These settings get me 4:3 with a nice fit for most games. I actually have three OSSC profiles.

    One for 640×448 one 640×480 and other for 512×448. These three do a good job of capturing most games. I also set swiss to 1:1 output.

    640×448

    Samplerate 858
    H Backporch 100
    H Active 640
    V Backporch 50
    V Active 448
    Sampling phase 180

    640×480

    Everthing the same except V Active 480

    512×448

    Samplerate 858
    H Backporch 164
    H Active 512
    V Backporch 48
    V Active 448
    Sampling phase 180

    This combo has given me most games at 4:3 on my TV while being razor sharp. Not perfect as some games are funky like Resident Evil Remake and RE4 in 1:1 but no denying they are as sharp as you can ever hope for on original hardware.

    Again many will say why 640? My TV does not like 704 and especially 720! 704 it streches to the full 16:9 for some reason and 720 comes off as too skinny. 640 was the sweet spot for my TV. LG Oled C8.
