Another N64 RGB question that im sure people are tired of however i have a PAL N64 un-modded with a modifeid s-video cable.
http://www.robwebb1.plus.com/n64/n64.htm – N64 S-Video & AV cable – PAL version
I dont suppose thie cable could “in theory” be made to work with the ossc using a modified s-video to scart or s-vid to componant adapter? I have seen some talk about the possibility of a device that could turn a signal into RGB but what if it was an s-video signal would the goal posts change a little or not at all?
I understand why the ossc only accepts an rgb signal a bit but there must be other N64 users with pal only machines they have had since release, in the market for an affordable fix that isnt console modification.
S-Video to SCART adapters are all passive, so you’re just changing the connector and doing nothing actually convert the signal to RGBS or YPbPr. An S-Video to component converter (not adapter; needs to be a box with circuitry, like this thing) would work, but I can’t speak to their efficacy.
You can also try tracking down an RGB decoder. I have a Kramer FC-4044 that works quite well in decoding composite video and S-Video to YPbPr/RGsB component and RGBS. Unfortunately, these things are very hard to come by; good luck finding one.
I would say the best solutions would be either:
1. The RetroTINK 2X, which accepts composite, S-Video, and YPbPr component, and outputs HDMI. It’s a very basic scaler, compared to the OSSC, but it, importantly, has compatibility with composite and S-Video. You would need to either forego the OSSC, or get an HDMI to VGA converter (which would be a bit silly, going from analog to digital to analog to digital); or
2. N64RGB modification, either borti’s or Tim Worthington’s, so you can actually get RGBS out of the console, and apply some deblurring compensation; or
3. UltraHDMI modification, for the same reasons as the N64RGB, just with HDMI out instead of analogue RGBS.
+1 for Tim’s N64RGB board. Just installed it on my N64, replacing a simple home-made 7314 amp. The deblur is a noticeable improvement.
I’m sure borti’s is equally good, but I don’t have personal experience with that one.
Yeah, well thanks for the replies. Shame there was not a solderless solution but il look into RGB amps.
You can fully blame Nintendo for the lack of a solderless solution; had they simply maintained port spec with the SNES, this wouldn’t even be an issue.
Do keep in mind that the simple $30 RGB amps are only for early N64s that start with NS1, while the boards by Tim Worthington and borti will work with any N64.
