Hi, I have a PAL N64 with a RGB Advanced board (and no filter add-on), I’m using a SNES NTSC Csync cable (from RetroGamingCable uk).
It works fine on my PVM and on a random Samsung 1080p TV but I get a “no sync” on the ossc.
Am I missing something ?
From what I could tell, the filter add-on is more for some problematic capture cards and to make PAL SNES cables compatible, is this required to work on the OSSC ?
SOLUTION : Run a small wire between pin 3 and 7 (Csync and Luma)
I just installed another one on another N64 and I get the same results : ie. No Sync on OSSC
Also, both of them don’t work in line 2X mode on my TV (samsung 1080p), the screen is cut in half as if I was sending 31KHz to a 15KHz display. I’m not sure this issue is related though

Yeah, I’m out of ideas now. Both consoles behave the same way, they work fine on a PVM, a 1080p Samsung but not on the OSSC. I’ve made sure that the composite and CSync lines lead to nowhere but it didn’t make a difference. My install is very clean and it works on other devices (TVs) so maybe I didn’t understand the point of a jumper but I keep reading the installation guide and I can’t see what’s wrong.
Solved ! Simply by running a wire between the Csync pin and Luma (marked “Y” – basically, run a wire between pin 3 and 7). I can’t believe that was the issue, I kept telling me it wouldn’t work and tried that just for the sake being comprehensive.
