    Mentioned this is a previous thread will post it here as a feature request.

    Is it possible if the OSSC had a way to generate black/blank lines or double say the first or last line of the game’s outputs multiple times you might be able to standardise the signal in some games that uses different resolutions. The first and last lines output are often used for screen safe areas so are just black or a coloured border like on the Mega Drive. You could say multiple 314 x 3 for 942 at PAL, then you could say repeat the first and last lines an additional 138 times between then. That way it would give you a 1080 height, while the aspect ratio wouldn’t be perfect it might just fool some TVs to think it would be a standard picture signal at 1080p. You could then adjust via zoom, crop and other options to correct for the odd aspect ratio picture possibly. Another example for SNES 224 x 4 for 896 then multiple the first and last lines an additional 184 to get 1080p.

    Not sure it can be done, but it’s an idea suggestion for a way for users might be able to standardise odd PAL resolutions if a feature like this could be added in the normal or pro model of the OSSC. Certainly if the user could pick a set line and multiple it as many times as they need. That way you could used the normal feature to multiple to as close as possible to 720p or 1080p, before then multiplying one or two set lines to give you the remaining lines to reach them. I’m guessing this may require set hardware to do, but wanted to bring up the idea to see if it is possible.

    Not possible, you have to wait for the upcoming Pro model which has such capabilities.
