Having problems with my ps2 over component cables to the OSSC. I’ve been searching the Internet for about a week now and can’t find any settings so I’m kinda just fumbling in the dark. My ps2 is losing sync with my tv and the OSSC light is going red. I can flip the OSSC off and on which helps picture come back for a second then it just drops again. I have the OSSC set to 480i pass-through mode and I have my ps2 settings on YPbPr. Any help is appreciated.
When and how does your PS2 lose sync? Is it during games? In the system menus? Does it happen randomly? Or does it only happen during transitions between menus and gameplay? Or does the LED just go red and stay red after turning the console on?
If sync is dropping when you go into a menu and then comes back a few seconds later, it’s likely because the resolution is switching from 240p (gameplay) to 480i (menus) and back, and sync is briefly lost. On a CRT, you don’t notice the resolution change; but, when sync is lost over HDMI, all the devices between your OSSC and display need to do another handshake before anything is shown on the screen, which can take a few seconds.
There’s not too much you can do besides perhaps configuring your OSSC for something like 2x for both 240p and 480i (bob deinterlace), then run your OSSC into an EDID minder set for 480p, and even that might not be perfect.
When my OSSC loses sync it doesn’t come back a few seconds later. It stays out of sync unless I turn the OSSC off/on. It regains sync briefly and then loses it again. Do you think setting 2X for both 240p and 480i would help with that?
If the OSSC is losing sync and not keeping it, there’s something wrong with the OSSC, the cable, or the console.
Rule out the OSSC by testing the same input with a different console (and cable, if otherwise compatible with both). Rule out the cable and console by hooking them directly to your TV (if you can) or by using a different compatible console and/or a different compatible cable (if you have them).
